    I need some help purchasing a nice amp. I would prefer the following requirements.

    1.Made is USA
    2.ALL Tubes/ no hybrids unless they meet all other requirements besides tubes of course.
    3.Hand wired- no Circuit boards
    4. >4 but <6 power tubes. KT88,6L6,6550,EL34 or similar
    5. at least one driver and 1 shaping preamp tube
    6. enough power to keep up with my guitar players 28 watt class A doctor Z.

    These are some amps i am interested in for now.

    You're looking for vintage amps, or new amps designed to copy vintage amps. Check TB's classified section.
     
  3. I'd love a /13 amp. I think it would be awesome of epic proportions.

    However, the priority on all the "cork sniffer" appointments is just so far down the list that I don't think I can justify that kind of price tag at this point in time.

    I don't know anything about these amps. I would only say this after checking out the web sites. The sound clips from the Reinhardt web site just don't sound all that great to me. The Reeves site offers a 10 day "no hassle" money back guarentee. What have you got to lose by trying one of those out? Best of luck.

    All of these amps are excellent choices, but I went for the Reeves Custom 225

    Power, weight, known build quality and all class.
