Default Favorite amps? Top 5

So I did a search, and we've had tones of favorite ______ threads, but no favorite amps! crazy right?

So what are your favorite 5 amplifiers? heads or combos, doesn't matter.

Here are mine, in no particular order
1- Marshall TSL100
2- Marshall 1987x
3- Marshall JCM800 2205/2210
4- VHT Pittbull 50 ST
5- VOX AC30HWHD
Honorable Mention: Fender Supersonic (Vibrolux cleans are spot on and some of my favorites, Bassman mode is cool though needs its own MV, Gain channel pretty solid too)


Bonus! Amps I was disappointed in and why
-Bogner Shiva -> Weak, nothing special about it.
-Bogner Alchemist -> Similar to Shiva, though priced for humans.
-Bogner Ecstasy -> 2 floor models, neither worked at all and both were brand new. (Obviously I have a poor impression of Bogner Amps)
-Peavey 6505 Plus -> Way too much hair I can't get rid of, 1x12 Combo version popping and stuff the whole time and new.
-Jet City JCA20H -> Popping and crackling and other garbage, brand new.
-Marshall JVM410H -> Too muddy, though very thick if you're into that sound.
-Mesa Royal Atlantic 100 -> Expected more plexi-ness, but it's too muddy and dark sounding.


Bonus Again! Amps I haven't tried but want to.
-Soldano anything, can't find one in person.
-ENGL Classic 50
-Wizard Modern Classic
-Germino Club 40
-Mako Makoplex
-Mojavi Plexi 45

1. Splawn QR
2. Engl Thunder 50
3. Peavey Ultra 60
4. Carvin Legacy
5. Peavey VTM 60

The Engl is my main amp right now, so portable and
sounds great through a 1 or 2x12. The Splawn, sadly,
was borrowed.

haha, quality stuff. I saw a thread like this on some other forum, and everybody was listing these weird amp makers I've never even heard of, kinda surprised me since I thought Marshall and Fender were still the mainstream.

What's the deal on the Crate Blue Voodoo? I've seen them suggested in several JCM800 type threads, and they're cheaper than 800s so.. are they similar quality or not really?

I still think the JCM800 is a better amp than the Crate, though like in this clip, the Blue Voodoo holds its own against the JCM900.

I play thru a Crate Blue Voodoo BV60H and it kicks ass ($200.00 shipped to my door). Sounds way better than that video. I really want a Mesa Triple Rec but don't have the funds yet. I also have a Peavey XXL that rocks too.
