Prediction: OP shortly acquires a new ampI have one amp, a Studio Vintage head.
Its my favorite amp and I dont care about buying a different model.
A friend is willing to sell me his SV for a great price.
Do I really need it? It would just be a backup if mine went down.
Man, this is so true!Main reason I dumped a lot and got back to basics is I've tried quite a few amplifiers over the years and finally settled on what I like. I can justify owning about any tube amp but variety sends me down rabbit holes I've learned to avoid. This is the distraction I mentioned. It also simplifies any external gear like pedals or whatever. Dumped a bunch of those also. Since my Germino is built to late 60s Marshall specs the only pedal or 2 i care to use would be what was around then. Most of my influences are 60s and 70s with simple rigs anyway. I don't even look for the latest thing anymore.
