In my opinion, the black/silver face Princeton Reverb is the must have amp in a collection. I almost sold mine (1973 Silverface) to buy some silly guitar about 2 years ago. Thankfully it didn’t happen.

Congrats.

Here's my completed Trinity TC15. Electronics by me, head cab by BG & 112 cab by Livesound. This is a 15W RMS Vox/Matchless amp with an EF86 channel, an AC30 Top Boost channel, a "more gain" switch (works on Top Boost channel), switchable OT primary impedance (which provides the Vox or Matchless choice), 4/8/16 output impedance, global power scaling (VRM), a "Cut" control and a master volume. Got the Celestion Blue in the cab but yet to crank. All those tones!

Certainly is.
I miss it, but I still have nowhere I could use it.

That is an appropriate rig.
To think I've gone from that to a 12 watt Jansen and people still say I'm loud. :roll:

This is #1, a Mike 5E3, I have played this every day since I got it. Bloody wonderful piece of kit.

This has sentimental value, a 1954 Valco made Harmony 8418, served as my trip amp across the USA, 5 watts of attitude.

It really it quite lovely - first amp in while that makes me want to keep playing. Bit more spendy than my usual purchases but certainly no regrets :)

Certainly is.
I miss it, but I still have nowhere I could use it.
the only place I got it cranking was the mission bay blues fest- outdoor to a big crowd, it sounded awesome. So good that I retired afterwards.
Who has it now?
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.
