Ron Johnson's TRaSh '80s Practice Home
"Ron Johnson shared this photo of his drummer's basement where his band, TRaSh '80s, practices. Ron explains, ""His house, garage and basement is a museum of drum history. Randy Rainwater is the drummer and he has well over a 100 complete drum sets and vintage snares that date back to the civil war era. Randy is also a Zombie fan and his practice space consists of many Zombie parts, toys and even autographed pics of the zombies from ""Night of the Living Dead."" The Ludwig image on the wall is signed by ""The Chief"" himself, William Ludwig Jr. There are also Gene Krupa autographs, Kenny Aronoff, Carmine Appice, The Romantics and loads of Cheap Trick stuff along with vintage guitars. Oh yeah Ren & Stimpy are there too. Pretty cool and historic place to practice. Pictured: guitarist Mark Loy, drummer Randy Rainwater, and bassist Ron Johnson."

Arguably a bit expensive for what it does.


Jackson Audio Silvertone 1484 Twin Twelve


Once harvested for peanuts at garage sales and pawn shops—or free for lucky dumpster divers—the Silvertone Model 1484 Twin Twelve amplifier of 1963-’67 graduated to legend status over the past couple decades. Like a lot of ’60s gear with department store catalog origins, Silvertone amps and guitars provided great bang for the buck when they were new. But perhaps no Silvertone product—apart from the company’s Danelectro-built guitars—is as revered as the Twin Twelve. Mudhoney’s Mark Arm and Steve Turner discovered their charms early in their career, and Twin Twelves and their siblings remained backline fixtures for punks, garage rockers, and indie kids. But once the likes of Jack White and Dan Auerbach got on board, the market heated up considerably.
