Live gigs Milkman Half and Half combo with a 12" speaker. For recording. I'm using a Milkman Creamer head through a cab with a single 12" JBL D120F and a Sarno V8 for direct recording.
Honestly my new Emmons D10 #005 is so balanced and full sounding it would make any amp sound great.
I'm a Fender tube amp guy. I have a late 70's Princeton Reverb with a 15" that is my gig amp lately. I'll be using that, for starters at least.
Would love to hear the combination of that amp and your new Emmons. Your Princeton reminded me of an amp I use to play thru. Remember the Fender Vibrosonic Reverb (Twin Reverb with a JBL 15”)? I loved that amp but yeah, heavy.
Yes, Vibrosonic Reverb is fantastic, but you won't catch me lifting it either.
Telonics TCA 500C Mini. Also a sixty-four pound Nashville 400 with a JBL and Ken Fox mod. 💪
When gigging, either my Webb 6-14E or Evans FET500 LV both with Eminence EPS-15C neo speakers to lighten the load. While around the house, a PV Nashville 112.
That new guitar ought to growl wonderfully.
