inspired by the Who makes the best guitars thread and poll, what company makes the best amplifiers?

and i know theres only a 10 choice limit, if you dont see the amps you like up there, post the name of it.
Peavey XXX combo *upgraded screen resistors, Tung-Sol's, and 6L6's*
Schecter Syn Std. * modded, scalloped, and worn*
Schecter C-1 Elite *still sexy*
Ibanez AEL 12-string

Line 6's are amazing. Just because the Spider sucks doesn't mean the company does.

I myself prefer Mesa-Boogies.

but the only line6 that common UGers can afford are the spiders.

if they can afford those "vetta"s or w/e, they can get a loud tube amp. so they don't get it.

thus, Line6 on UG pretty much means spiders.

the best ive played was a Hughes and Ketner, but alas, i too suffer the indignation of owning a spider II (though you can coax some decent tones at about mid volume and an overdrive pedal).

that's actually my least favorite fender tube amp. along with the champion, and the hot rod deluxe/devilles. they aren't that great. champ isn't loud and the tone isn't too great. supersonic and the hot rod delxue/devilles' gain channel mushes up so easily. and when u turn it up, it gets muddy.

No such thing. It depends on your style.


The thread is what do YOU think.

So, there's no such thing as a personal fave?
