I haven't really bought any gear of note for about five years.. I was in school, so I figured it was wise just saving my money. Well, I graduated earlier this summer. You know what that means.

I now have two new (not really new) amps and a new pedal, a pedal I've needed for years.

I'll start small first. It's a TS-9. Got it for $50. It's in great shape, sounds great. Got it for my Mesa and maybe for another addition I'll mention in this thread..



The second piece of gear I acquired is German.. it's a SS Hughes & Kettner. The Triplex. Sounds great for a SS. I needed something I could keep at relatively low volumes with high gain, and this was the cheapest, and honestly, the best sounding option I found. Not a big low-watt/high gain amp market here in Columbus. But this will certainly do. It sounds fantastic.. especially for $170.





And the final piece is what works so well with the Tubescreamer.. it's an old Univox tube amp. U-45b I think. I don't really care, since I found it in a dumpster and it actually works and sounds great. It's a little rough on the inside, but with some care it'll look much better. But the sound is all that matters. It has a 12-inch Jensen speaker inside.





Don't have pictures from the back of it on me. Anyways, I'm pretty happy with my new additions.

I'm so confused at why someone would put a working amp in a dumpster. But I'm not complaining.

Maybe they stopped playing guitar and they thought the amp was worthless.

Just make sure not to feed it after midnight. That might bite you in the ass.

HNGD, nonetheless

Happy New Dumpster Amp Day!

Another factor that has grown this myth is a bunch of opinionated guys who really don't know what they're talking about, which to be brutally honest is a bunch of you guys on here.

Protip: Check dumpsters around large college campuses during moving week.

Got it for my Mesa

At first, I thought you meant that you traded a Mesa for it and I was like
HILT!

Where's Waldo?
