Amps for Recording Keyboard

Just curious what amps people are using and prefer for recording (or reamping direct) keyboards. Let me know. Thanks.

Vox AC-30 or AC-15. The tremelo is awesome on E. Pianos as well. Check out the first track on Radiohead's The Bends for what these amps sound like with an E. Piano.

The piano on the track in question sounds like a Yamaha CP80 which has tremolo built in. I could be wrong, but I'd bet my ears on it. (If I lost the bet that would solve my gear lust.)

I use a "blackfaced" Fender Quad Reverb (basically a 4 x 12 Twin) with a Fender Rhodes. Sounds totally boss. Mind you, I ripped the crappy Fender speakers out and put in 4 Weber's which has a lot to do with the beautiful sound of that amp.

Crazy. I'd bet my ears it's the AC-30. Maybe someone could clear this up.

I think Deep Purple used to put organ through a Marshall stack. Dated, I suppose, but still pretty cool.
