• Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!

Please help me to find an amp.....

Look for an early 60's Ampeg ReverbRocket II that has 6V6's instead of 7159's. They made them that way for a while. Hand wired ,USA quality made with high grade components, 6V6' s ,Reverb, and a reasonable price. Kenny Fischer highly recommended them.

That should be near impossible here in Germany....but i have a Ampeg Jet 12R and this little amp sounds amazing!!!
Got some TAD EL84´s, a 12AY and a 12AT in it.
Wow, with the Jensen C-12Q it sounds soo fantastic!!!

gypsyseven, I went through the same dilemma myself last year and after months of researching and listening I'd narrowed my choices down to Tone King and Red Plate. I ended up going for a Red Plate amp and I couldn't be happier, it's my perfect amp.

My guess is that the Marble will be very expensive in the US due to the weak Dollar. I don't know the Lazy J but the thing I liked a lot about the Marble was the fact that even at very low volumes it just felt very good, like a good tweed should.

Have you checked out the Ampeg Gemini 1? Mid '60s amp for about $500. One 12" speaker, great reverb (and trem), no 6V6's, but a 7591A (more "musical" sounding IMO), and 2 channels with 2 inputs each so you can jumper the channels. Not a huge amount of super clean headroom but a harmonically complex smoking little amp! :2cool
