Lets say money is no object and you could have any 2X12 combo amp in the world for any genre that you want.What amp would you choose for what style of music and why?
#2
I'd take a Dumble SSS 2X12 loaded with EVM 12L speakers. It'd be for a jazz/funk fusion kind of thing. Mostly I just want the massive low end that I think sounds great with a Strat and the sustain. I needz moar clean sustain.

Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

hmm... for general rock and metal I'd probably get something custom built... but if you mean a production amp, then I'll go with a Fryette Pitbull 100/CLX. If I am allowed custom builds, I get Diamond Amplification to make me a 50w, 3 channel thing based around the Phantom but with a mid gain channel voiced more like the Spitfire.

Good luck lifting that one. It's like a Twin with JBL's, but worse.

Well, if my "dream amp" is going to be a combo, it's going to be for country or jazz and similar less aggressive styles. Because there's no way my dream rock/metal amp is a combo.

Also, if I'm going to get a combo it's not going to be a 2x12. It'll be a 2x10 or 1x12 - I want to be able to move the thing.

All that said, I would go with a Fargen Blackbird 2x10 with 6L6s. Perfect for jazz or country.

I'd love a 2x18 combo,, mostly for the novelty,, but unfortunately to my knowledge they don't make anything bigger than 15" for musical instrument amps,, maybe someday I'll just build my own cab and put 18" black widows in it,, that would be ridiculous

If it has to be a 2x12 (or smaller) I would take one of the Fenders.
Otherwise the huge one (Magnatone?) in the middle

Nah, that's for an ODS. An SSS would go for double that easily and AFAIK there are no combos so it'd be worth even more.

And hankey, if I could afford that Dumble, I could afford a couple of guys to lift it. I've tried lifting a Twin w/ EVM12Ls that belongs to a friend and it was at least 100 pounds.

Have to say it'd be a Soldano SLO 100, but I'm not sure if there are any SLO combos.

Maybe the Budda Superdrive 80.

All bow to the mighty Gorilla. There's a video of Matthias IA Eklundh with one somewhere that's lulz.

EDIT: Here's info on the 2X12 SLO. Apparently around 20 exist.

Gorilla amps pride themselves on maintaining fragile vacuum tube harmonics through solid state technology.

There was an SLO combo on Rig Talk for a while that was like $2300 or something.
