Shame lots of the pics in this thread have gone now :(

This is my old, sadly missed, Bassman 70 and Peavey 1516E. Insanely loud and sounded great (with guitar too, not that we care about that...)

I'll have to fish out a pic of my Fender. Early 90's Champ 25 - was only around for a couple of years, a bit of an oddity as it's a solid state preamp, but a valve PI and valve power section (25w from a pair of 6L6) into a 1x12. It's REALLY bloody loud and very clean. Seen people describe it as a "mini Twin".

As per usual, the drive channel is a bit iffy. It's got tons too much gain on tap, with the gain right off I get some nice breakup tones with a Tele, but anything with humbuckers is just too much. Clean channel is ace though.

I had one of those for a couple of years. I liked mine, but it was definitely the sort of amp where you run it clean and use pedals. I found that the reverb on mine was very much improved by fitting a full length type 9 pan rather than the short one that's in there.

Joyo do a Blackface clone with a valve rectifier called the Beale Street. I really want to try one but for now the Effectrode PC2A does a decent job of emulating amp sag.
