Here is my guitar amp:

Posted Image

Peavey ultra-X 112. 60 W, 3 channels (sort of). I've had this amp for over 6 years and can't really see myself changing it any time soon. If it 'aint broke, don't fix it and all that. If I did need it to be any louder I could always get an extension cab but I can't imagine I would.

I spent ages looking for the right head and finally setted on this Fryette Deliverance 60. It's a single channel amp, no unnecessary nonsense or ultra confusing options for a gobsh*te like me. It'll do sparkling clean to really crushing distortion and all loveliness inbetween. I looked at Mesas, Marshalls and everything else, this one just spoke to me and it's an amazing piece of kit. The cab is a Peavey Valveking 4x12, I was running out of money and needed a cab to gig so this was pretty cheap and did the job decently. I'd like to get the Fryette 2x12 in the future but the bank practically insist I pay the mortgage first.

I've a delightful Ampeg 2x12" combo I'll add if I can find a pic. I did gig with it a couple of times but it was just way too heavy which is why I needed to source the head instead.

We moved house a while ago (4 yrs) and I haven't got anywhere to put my guitar amps. And it's a rent, so no annoying the neighbours. So they're still mostly wrapped up :(

Don't want this rig, (especially that 56 Tele) at all. Not at all. Well, maybe a bit.

Even if you did sell that guitar, I know I can't afford it

Vizy 22 watt tube head, Vizy OD unit and a pair of Marshall 1912s

Usually use a Boss DD3 and an LNA Rat boost pedal.

Well gang,

At the moment, it feels like I'm the luckiest bloke alive. It's my birthday today (60) and last night we had a party. My guitarist turned up with our friend who built his (and my) guitar heads. He knew that I'd been hankering after a head like mine but in combo format ( which he does not make) for some time and had always said that if I hit the lottery, I'd commission one.

It seems that there is now a "Keith" (yeah I know) combo in the range as my wife had done just that and had one built for me.

40 watts, reverb that is progressive with the gain control. Celestion G12 Rock driver and an impedance control to match the amp with pickup output.

Got to bed at 6 am so gonna plug in and give it a blast later tonight.

I seriously don't deserve my wife.

Cheers Guys. I just hope I can do it some justice. I'm no Larry Carlton, more Larry Grayson. Bought the little Peavey to use at rehearsals here so no other bugger gets to use my head and the 2x12 stereo was meant to replace my Blues Deville for clean stuff. I need more space :o

I was thinking about getting one of these, I've never really been into using a lot of different tones. Plus I've got a "guitar rig" now so I could just take that to gigs if I was feeling particularly lazy at some point lol.

Here's my guitar amp - it's one I built myself. The circuit and layout are closely based on a Fender Princeton Reverb, and it's in a lightweight (9mm) birch plywood cabinet with an Eminence 1028k alnico 10" speaker. It does about 15 watts, is light enough to lug around on the bus and has reverb and tremolo to die for! Even though it's only 15 watts and a single 10", it's as loud as I usually need when playing semi-clean with my band.

Haven't posted in the Forums for a while, pretty much since I swapped back to Guitar. But now there's a thread especially for the 'untouchables'......so here goes.

I still have my Custom Bass made by the Forums very own Chopthebass.....now residing in the wilds of Canada.
Guitar duties are covered by a Fender Custom Shop Strat and a Fender Road Worn Tele. The amp has recently been changed from a Fender DRRI to a Swart Space Tone Reverb. This thing is so unbelievably good its......well......unbelievable! Its a tone MONSTER. Only 5 watts but its class A single ended and it'll take a 6V6, 6L6 or an EL34 without rebiasing. Valve rectifier as well. The reverb is the deepest lushest cavernous (if you want it) reverb I've heard. If you get the chance to try one of these wonderful amps, take it.

On the floor there, there is a Laney Linebacker 100R. In the rack is my Boss GX-700 and the stereo power amp I play it through. Under the rack and under the cab with the Skull flag over it is the pair of PA cabs I run the power amp through. I also have the GX-700 hooked up to my PC for recording.
You can just about make out the neck of my headless Flying V behind the Guitars in the rack.
That's it for my Guitar stuff.

I finally got around to turning the grill on my Peavey TX cab around so the tragedy of a flame paint job the previous owner did is no longer visible.
