Steel Amps - what is the best steel amp you ever played or stil play with?

Message  Mummenhoff Marc le Jeu 16 Juin - 14:57

For years i have played a Peavey Session 500 and for me it was the best amp i ever played with
At that time i had also a Peavey Nashville 400 - A Fender Twin Reverb and two kustom Leads
None of these amps could match with the session 500. - That's my personal opinion
For the moment i play at home with a small Kustom Lead 2 and for gigs i use the Fender Steel King.
Although the Steel King is not bad but noth like the session 500 (specially the low gain input of the session 500 was superb)
What Amp are you guys using?

Used to have a Fender Twin. Great sound, but too heavy. Then came the Session 400, with Ken Fox mod: very good. Now use a LeMay Preamp Mk-1 and a Rocktron 2X50 watt power amp through the BW 15" of my Session 400. The LeMay is really a beefed up top quality Session 400 preamp. Effects: Lexicon mx 300 and a Seymour Duncan Twin tube overdrive.
Allows me a wide variety of sounds. I have never missed the Fender nor the Session 400. And the whole lot is... portable.

I use a Brad Sarno Tonic Preamp with a TC Furlong 12". It's my work horse. Light, punchy with the great warm sound of a black face.
I love also my custom Princeton. Small but what a sound ...
I have an Evans SE200 which is great and more sonic than the Nashville 400 for me. And it is very light.
I have a Lemay preamp but I find it poor regarding the Tonic preamp. I have also a Mesa Boogie Studio Preamp which sounds good but it's too heavy now.
And, that's all ... Laughing

From 1976, I use a Fender Vibrosonic Reverb, with the psg plugged straight
into the amp. I've never found better till now.
From time to time, I use a Alesis Microverb between the psg and the amp
if the stage floor isn't very stable or if I have to play in stereo.
Of course this amp is heavy, but it's the same for my D-10.
For me, the sound depends more of the instrument and/or the player.
