As of right now it goes alittle like this:
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier ( 3 channel , 100 watt )
Mesa Boogie Single rectifier ( 2 channel. 50 watt )
Fender Hot Rod Deluxe
But I did place an order for a new 2 channel custom with matching 2x12 cab:star:
One that I actually use: '95 Fender Blues Deluxe, and...
Two that I neglect: '66 Super Reverb and '05 Valvetech 50W 2x12 combo.
I went through a phase where I thought the Blues Deluxe wasn't adequate for gigs, so I went bigger and bigger, but now I think the bigger amps are overkill for most applications.
Forty plus, about a dozen short of goal.
I currently have two amps:
Mesa Boogie Trem-O-Verb 2X12 Combo (Extremley Heavy to move around)
Two Rock 10th Anniversary Head and Matching 2X12 Cabinet
But I'm really wanting a HXDA in the worst way!! I may have to go ahead and pull the trigger on that here soon. :biggrin:
One. Marshall avt 2000. 3 channels of power
Three for me:
- 50 watt PRS Original Sewell 2x12
- 100 watt PRS Dallas 2x12
- 1958 all original tweed Fender Harvard
Here are some of mine...
2Channel "H" and Custom MDT (TGS 410-B)
Blistertone (sold), Custom Dallas and HXDA Head:
Sweet 16+ with jade glow panel I have yet to install:
Also have a nice "Santana Yellow" panel for my HXDA that I haven't installed yet either:
Sold my SLO 100 with the 2 cabinets that Heart Toured with in the 1980's:
Sold my Elmwood 3100:
Sold Howie Leese's personal Studio Amp...
Cornford Hellcat with matching cabinet:
Also sold my "PRS Harmonic Generator" but kept the great 4X12 cabinet:
Also sold my Bogner XTC Classic...I find the PRS amps cover all my needs for now.
Breaking News! Flash! This just in!!!
Les likes his HX/DA amp. A lot.
Back to your regularly scheduled programming.
I've also had several Two-Rocks that were wonderful amps - Onyxes and CRS v. 2 and 3. Had a bunch of other amps, but the two you have were my absolute faves for a long time.
If you like those amps, I think you'll also dig the HX/DA. It's got character and a "wow" factor like the T-verb and TR, but in a different direction. It'd nicely compliment your other rigs.
Seriously, I love the tones I can dial in. Here's why:
Cleans? Stellar enough that I recorded a rockabilly track with it last month with a little slapback delay. Clear as a Twin.
In December, I got it gainy enough for the Ford F-150 campaign that runs constantly.
I just finished an alt-rock track with it kind of crunchy for a GM car ad, and a pop track getting that "edge of grit" thing for another client.
Used it with the SC58 to get kind of an Allman solo tone for a track my partner wrote for an industrial video.
And all the tones were exactly what I needed, sounded great, and sat in the mixes perfectly. If I had another amp, even a very good one, it would sit unused. What I should do is buy a backup of this one.

"Very Impressive, Mr. Shefman!
Who would guess that this man is over 700 years old...and is currently in Eastern Europe on a top secret mission. How does he find the time to do this, and still manage his production business? Only Les knows the answer to that. But be careful...if he told you..he'd have to kill you!
