i've had my eye on the mesa boogie line, my price range is under $600.

maybe you could buy a picture of one for 600, and just pretend for awhile...

Marshall MG10CD Replaced it with a Peavey Enovy 110 a few months ago. Best ss amp money can buy. (Only 300 aswell)

#12
Fender Bullet 15 DSP, then a Marshall MG30DFX which i sold to pay towards my current Peavey Classic. the Fender is down at my dad's (he lives an hour or so away) so that i dont have to lug a 200W tube combo around.

I don't even remember what my first amp was, but I played with a Stage 25 for a few of the early years. It was a Univox by another name with a real groovy 70's logo!

Had a white/maple Univox Strat at the same time that I wish I still had.

My first amp was a Peavey Special 112.

After that came (by manufacturer, not order of purchase)

Crate 50 watt head from the 80's
Crate GX1200 full stack
Line 6 Spider 2 head (cheap backup for tube head)
Marshall Valvestate head
Marshall DSL 100 head
Peavey Butcher Half Stack (tube head)
Peavey 5150 head

Now I have the Dual Rec half stack and am totally satisfied with the gain and volume. May get a 212 cabinet though, still debating.

my 1st amp came built-in the case - came from Montgomery Wards - it was 1965 or 66... I got hooked. Then in 67' I heard Hendrix and it was all over... Now I'm 55 AND STILL FRIGGIN' HOOKED on makin' bloody noise
Now running an Eleven Rack with Pro Tools 10.3.3 - it's amazing and I'm having ball with it - worth every penny. PT 10 is tops IMO and the Eleven Rack is a work of art!

stuck with the crate glx30 for the first 2 or 3 years. apparently didn't know anything about tone and got the half-stack version of it. i was aware that it sounded exactly the same too... goddamnit.

but now i got an epi valve junior and having a hard time starting to mod it... sounds fine now, but just barely makes band practice volume.

i think after effects and drum set upgrades i'm going for the mesa single rect.
oh it's a long road.

Started with some Crate GFX212 thing...had it for a few years and upgraded to Hot Rod Deluxe...man I wish I knew back when I bought that crate what I know now. That HRD is great and I'm loving it, but hopefully will be replaced by the end of this year with a Deluxe or Twin Reverb.

Started with a Squire Strat and a Danelectro Dirty 30. Then Bumped it up to the strat, Epiphone Les Paul Standard, POD XT Live, and a 1964 Gibson Discoverer 1x12 amp. *learn from this* >>>>>>SAVED MY MONEYS<<<<<<<< Now I'm using the gear listed in my sig. and I love it. My rig has come a looong way and it has a way to go but this is good right now for what I do.

Then: Crate G40CXL

Now: Music Man 50RD with a Carr 2x12 Slant 6V Cab
