At home.......Ric 330/6 and a Vox AC30VR........When I play out it just goes straight into the mixing desk into the P.A speakers and it sounds superb...Crystal clear.

I have a few different amps, both tube and circuit right now, but have 2 Fender Princeton 112 Plus amps that allow me to play in stereo with a matched set of amplifiers. They are circuit amps and only weigh about 26 lbs each. They are 65 watts with 12 inch stock speakers...Play both my 360 and 360/12 through them. I have also played through my Fender Acoustasonic SFX, and they sound good through that too, but it weighs about 80 lbs. I get fantastic tone through my Carvin Nomad tube amp too, but really don't take that one out to gig with.

Vox AC15 + JC-77 together for 330/6 or 12 strings a great combination for me.

Fender Bassman with my old 4001 also a lot of fun, after a long time with an 1980s Peavey combo.

Ever tried a RIC through Rocksmith ;) ?

AC15H1TV usually (360/12). Occasionally I'll plug into the Blues Jr just for something different.

I have a Ampeg Micro VR for the basses,and out of laziness one day I plugged the 660-12 into it, and found it to be a winning combination.

Sorry but TR25's and 620 12's ARE "The Winning Combination"...

Meh. I can't say that I was blown away by the TR25. The 620/12 always blows me away, though.

Well i have a 1980 FG 620 12 just like the one pictured... But alas only a TR7... So it's almost the winning combination... For clean jangle (with an awesome tremolo) it is great!

But the VOX nails the more distorted high gain sounds - which is why it is great to have more then one amp...

I like Vox cleans more than their gain, actually. I've been favoring my Matchless channel more for gain. I think the 620/12 rings more through the Matchless for some reason.

I just bought my first Ric - a 620/6 in Midnight Blue. Very nice! I've only had it a week and haven't had a chance to play it as much as I'd like. For now I'm playing through a Fender Deluxe Reverb '65 Reissue. Sometimes I also run it through a GigiTech RP-150.

I also have a Roland JC77, but haven't as yet plugged the 620 into it. Looking forward to that...

I'm still exploring the sound of the 620. I like what I'm finding so far. :-)
