Let's give props to amp gear you've been using regularly over the long haul! Like many of you I've done a lot of gear swapping. Most of my amp gear is post-Y2K. Over the past 27 years I've owned and have experimented with a number of other amps and preamps, but my Alembic F2B has rarely left my rack and has been my primary tone machine since roughly since I bought it back around 1985 ($225, pre-owned). Road test results: only problem in all that time was a loose solder joint which occurred and was repaired last year. My second oldest piece of gear (basses excluded) is the TC Electronic 1140 parametric pictured underneath, which I use for precision tweaking when necessary. As I recall I purchased that in the late 80's or early 90's. This device is super-powerful and super-quiet. I'm surprised it didn't catch on with more bassists. TC later named this device a Bass Preamplifier but that didn't help... parametrics are tricky to use, and more than most people need. Road test results: no failures, but the pots gradually became scratchy. Got that taken care of last year; it now works as well as brand new. Oh... I've had the Furman PL-Plus since about the time they came out. No problems.
