    Hi, guys!

    Just like most of you, I look at amps like (most) women look at shoes and purses.

    Last summer I bought a great amp that I intended to use as my main amp. Since day 1 I've had technical issues with it and it is still not ok. Currently it's in for repair. So I definitely needed a backup. That's why I bought the Genz-Benz Streamliner 900. A great amp, I must say.

    But: what if my other does not come back as reliable as it must be? Now I need a backup for the backup. Or a new main amp. Or whatever you would like to call it; I need two working amps.

    I have a few in mind:

    Hartke Kilo
    Mesa Boogie M6 Carbine
    Mesa Boogie M9 Carbine
    Orange AD200B MK3
    Orange OB-1K
    Matamp GT200

    Give your pros-cons and other suggestions too, please.

    I just need a reliable, great amp that I can trust in rehearsal, at gigs and in studio.
