    The Electro Harmonix Mig-50 Reissue.
    Thank you Mike Matthews, and Co.
    Affordable, Loud, and and a well built redesign of an amp that was plagued with poor component quality issues in its original incarnation.
    At under $600 USD retail they are a steal for what they are.

    about what?
    A quick tip:
    If you want to continue to dominate on this forum, then lose the parasite sidekick(Marshalldick)...he is hurting your brand. ;)

    Please tell me this was a joke ? If it is then OK, I really didn't get the punchline.
    If its not then its got to be the worst comment posted on the entire internet all year.

    Tough question.
    I use a Bugera G5 Infinium for home practice and Blues Jr NOS for band rehearsal -- they get played the most.
    However for gigging I use a Hot Rod Deluxe and DSL40C combination that I really like. (OK, I'm stretching the "current production" a bit as the 40C was replaced with the 40CR).
    :hmm:
    Nope, can't pick just one.

    First, I love my DSL40CR.
    But if I could trade up the VS65R to make the DSL my second amp then realistically it would be a JVM215C (with a speaker change, maybe a RedBack).
    Unrealistically, it would be the Canadian REVV Generator 100P.
    A true phucking monster as far as I can tell.
    So rare in shops here though, I may never get to try one!
    The REVV G-series pedals are as close as I can get in my area of the UK.

    Mesa-Boogie Triple Crown 100
    [​IMG]

    These two can handle any musical genre, sound good with just about any guitar, and sound great with different speakers. But I prefer the Mesa-Boogie Road King 2 over the Triple Crown 100 , but since we're talking about current production (RK2 was discontinued a few years ago), Triple Crown 100 slides right into that vacant spot very nicely.

    Good answer! Your brand is intact.

    If my beloved towering overshadowing Marshall JTM/100JH isnt allowed in this thread, I’ll put up my Silver Jubilee for considerstion-they still make ‘replicas’ of it.

    my favorite amp atm is a mesa stiletto duece, an old one.
    i scored it a couple of months ago after my friend brought it here for me to listen to.
    i wasn't using it that much until the cops came about two weeks ago when I was blasting my 100 banger jmp.
    I haven't heard youtube clips on this amp, but I bet they're shit, if you set the amp up on the hot channel, with presence 3, treble 4 , bass on 8, mids on 6 , lay off the silly tube recs, the thing sounds just like a Marshall, you can cook it, smoke it up at lowish volumes and the cops don't come.
    These things are just Marshalls with a different name.
    I hate new amps, but I love this thing.
    I dimed it when it first got here and was really surprised at the dynamics too, this isn't a bedroom queen amp, it's gig-worthy, the amp is a true monster.

    i should add, on other channels, different settings, this amp makes no sense to me whatsoever. Turning the knobs has a big effect, perhaps unlike a marshall - you gotta get the knobs right.

    further edit- tone surprise, the amp has some cool tungsram ecc83 in v1 and v2, grey welded plates, round getter, single large-ish plate hole, double mica and the mica tabs at the top are shiny black and welded too. The tubes have a backwards 7 imprinted on the glass right under at the base, but they dont compute as mullards.

    Does it have to be one I own now?

    If not, I must confess that I've never had more fun than with the Mesa Mark IIA that I sold in 1997. Serial number 3116. Hundred watt model with reverb and graphic EQ. If you find it, let me know, I want to buy it back.

    If it has to be one I own now, then I just can't answer the question. My restored '73 Super Lead is awesome and fun in a completely different way than my current Mesa Mark III long head blue stripe hundred watter with reverb and graphic EQ. Which is a completely awesome and fun amp, too, and which itself is so different from my Fractal Axe-FX II which is just a box of digital bits that's absolutely chock full of every tone I can imagine and dream up.

    They're all my favorites! Deal with it!

    The Splawn Quick Rod is my favorite amp that I've ever played or owned. Super tight, punchy and articulate. Pops right out of a mix.
