This Soldano is a current favorite. I stay on the crunch channel most of the time even though it's known for high gain. It's a deceptively versatile amp that covers just about anything I could ever need.

Oh, you can participate! I've always been interested in the Bad Cats, and especially that one. But... why 4?
Well, I bought a hot cat 30 around 2002ish, not long after they came out. After I started a band, I ordered a 100 watt version. Gigged with that pair for 3-4 years. I couldn’t really run the 100 loud enough to get the goods from it(loud!) and sold it to get a 50R. That amp was great and I gigged it in a wet/dry setup for a long time. Sometime around when the Archon was released(I bought one of the initial ones as a preorder before they were in full swing production), we also added another guitarist to the band. The wet dry rig was overkill then. I loved the Archon and used that because it fit the band better and was easier(didn’t love the bad cat fx loop). I had GAS and sold the 50R since I wasn’t using it much. I eventually sold the original 30 too cause it just sat there(stupid!). Then a few years back I stumbled on a used 1x12 30R combo for cheap at GC before Covid started the gear inflation prices. So I have that combo now. I’d rather it be a head, but I couldn’t turn down the price. So that’s how I’ve had 4 of the same amp albeit different wattages.

The reason I said I couldn’t participate is because I can hardly pick just one amp. I love my SLO 100, Archon, Bad Cat, Divided by 13 and Matchless all for different reasons. Would be super hard to pick just one. I feel a little dumb with an over abundance of great amps and more than a little spoiled.:oops:

Egnater Rebel 30. If I had the coin I would definitely buy this amp. It’s either that or a Mesa. I played on a Mesa so many times. Are old studio had two Mesas.

I do love my Katana. I know you can can use patch chords for different sounds but I haven’t a clue as to how to do this.

I wish they had a course on this stuff. Trying learn on my own is useless as I am a technotard. Lol

Bruce Egnater is from my neck of the woods (Detroit). Super-nice guy, knows his stuff.

Whichever one I am playing because I wouldn't buy it if I didn't like it. :)

Picking one is impossible for me for very long. The Bogner Uberschall holds a special place in my heart though. I just love those early versions.
