Guitar Players... what amps do you use?

Just wondering what amps ya'll have that you practice with.... and any of you that play live, what do you use. Why do you like the setup you have and what would you do different if anything?

thanks
MIKE

my amp is a VOX AD15VT
my guitar is a Gibson Faded SG Special Electric Guitar
just starting out

the only thing i would change is the amp is too bassy sometimes.
i really want a Fender Tom Delonge Strat, but they dont make the anymore

I have a Spider III amp right now and a a couple of Schecter guitars. The clean settings on the Spider III are really the only complaints that I have about the amp.

live i use an early 5150 through a soldano cabinet.
for practice with the band i use a marshall micro stack lol.
normally on my own, i just play through my laptop with a line6 guitar port and gear box.

soon i'll be getting a line6 x3 live to use in conjunction with the 5150. don't know if i will like it or not.

check out this setup http://www.myspace.com/graffzeppelin

Atomic Reactor 112 with a Pod 2.0 in the top. Though I am eying the new Pod X3 Live.

Andrew: What is a B52?

I have a Randal rg100 combo amp sounds awesome and is loud as hell.. I used to have a rg100 half stack but hated lugging that damn thing around. I have a B.c rich warlock and a new Jackson rr24 a line 6 ubber metal pedal and thats it.

Well if people answer the question and give their reasons they like certain amps It will help me out some so maybe I don't have to look at 100 different amps?

I play all kind of rock(except that emo shit)... I want something with decent clean settings and of course good distorted settings... I hear good things about certain amps and then someone will say bad things about the same amp(guess that is with everything though). Thanks for your help in advance!

my crappy amp is an epiphone so cal 50... It sucks honestly. I also have a Randall RGP1000 preamp which is pretty cool. Although Im building a 50w Soldano SLO clone to be my mian amp. I hope to have it done by chistmas.
