So you ve got 2 amps to buy to last you the next 20 years or so what do you get.

Reason i ask is planning on buying a house in the next 2-3 years, so once thats happened no more expensive gear for me, but ive told the wife there's a few things im going to buy this year before we take the plunge.
Current amps i have are a Marshall jcm 2000 dsl 100w stack for the band and a jcm 900 100w combo for home. Dont really rate the 900 combo, good cleans rubbish OD and the 2000 is pretty good but not what i want to settle on, plus its effects loop is really noisy(only a little thing but pisses me off).
Im thinking of trading in both with some more cash and going for a Fender 65 twin reverb re-issue for home and a Orange 100w rockerverb for the band. Love the OD on the orange and well the fender, cant go too wrong there. Plus prob get my self a hagstrom viking and then that ll be it for a LONG LONG time. Which is fine, i dont really care because ill be set.
What would your last set up be?? just interested to see what people think

My Abbey Harmonic 2 and the JTM45 I am building.

Btw, you can fix the OD channel on a JCM900 pretty easily, you just have to replace BR2/D10 with a 100K resistor.

Clean channel on the Diezel is pretty damn good, for such a high gain amp. Arguably the best clean on a high gain amp (Mesa Road King doesn't count, they cheat )

If you like your blues gritty like me, I'm sure you could dial something nice in on the lowest gain channel on the Splawn.

Mesa Lonestar 2x12 and a Carvin V3. Fender style cleans and gritty blues from the Lonestar and everything else on the Carvin V3. That will just about cover everything.

Would have said a Fender Twin Reverb but the Lonestar is more versatile.

1) Something along the lines of a Blackface Twin.

2) Some quad-channel monstrosity... Engl SE or Savage would be right up my alley, but a Diezel wouldn't hurt, either.

Hmm... took me about half a second to think:

1) a JMI vox AC30/6 - non-top boost. i prefer the bright channel without any EQs.

2) Fender 5E3 tweed deluxe.

this would cover all bases that i actually care about.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Everybody's pretty accurate as far as one clean + one dirty amp goes.

I'd do something like a Hiwatt/Reeves or a Marshall/Splawn etc Plexi for cleans and light dirt, and perhaps a JCM 800 KK for brootz.

To be honest though, I don't necessarily see myself keeping either. I'd be more likely to keep selling and trading with people until I find "my" tone.

And they have to be real tube amps? No AxeFX? Fine, I'd have something like a Diezel VH4 and a vintage Vox AC30.

For cleans, a good Fender (maybe a Twin Reverb) or a Roland Jazz Chorus, and a Mesa Dual Rectifier.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Axe fx ii and a Splawn Street Rod combo. Axe fx ii for quiet, versatile tones and recording; Street Rod for obvious reasons.

Splawn Quick Rod would actually cover all of this and then you could get another amp either

A: More dedicated to great cleans (ie Fender Twin, Roland JC)
or
B: More dedicated to br00talz (ie Diezel VH4, Ampeg VH140C)
