    I have one under my B-15 almost a perfect fit some day I will "paint it black" & run an additional brace thru the center and use the T-nut to attach it to the amp as intended.

    I’m going to bookmark your collection just for those times when my wife asks why I need so many amps!

    And I only have 4 and a half amps and 5 extention cabs!

    2017 Vox AC-15VR- Always wanted a 15-watt Vox, and needed to fill a void in my life while my big, heavy Fender twin was out for repair. Awesome amplifier, and louder than you might expect. She offers me pure, crystal clear 1x12 Celestion speaker magic.

    2015 Simmons DA-50 drum amp - Bought this lovely beast after the Roland amp that came with my digital drum kit died during a lightning storm. Fantastic response and punch. Really, really impressed with it.

    2013 Fender 212R - The big, heavy Fender twin in question. 100 watts, 2x12, loud and awesome. Hero of a hundred combats. Has been on stage with me for more gigs than I can remember. I bought one for myself after finding an earlier one (used, out in Texas) and gifting that one to my brother for his birthday.

    2013 Peavey Vypyr VIP 2 modeling amp - 40 watt, 1x12. So lightweight and versatile, it's scary. Will function as an electric guitar amp, acoustic amp, or bass amp. Tons of effects and amp models, and really user-friendly. I bought it on a whim, and have been really happy with that decision ever since.

    2012 Fender Rumble 15 bass amp - Smallish 15 watt, 1x8 rig. Believe it or not, I bought it to deliver clear sound in my wife's workout room. I use the Aux (RCA) inputs and it is her de facto PA system in there, for her television and Roku.
    I have borrowed it for other, more musical endeavors, but it serves here well in the workout room.

    2011 Roland Cube 15XL - 18 watt, 1x8 practice amp. Bought it for the ease of toting it to the local old folks home, on the evenings when my bass playing brother wants to come along and sing fun oldies for the elderly residents there. I can carry off an unplugged acoustic and going without vocal mics, but his bass needs just a little bit of amplification. I also use it to test and troubleshoot guitar issues on the kitchen counter.

    2008 Crate Telluride acoustic amp - 125 watt, 2x8, a fantastic and versatile amp. Features reverb and chorus effects, tunable at that, and a microphone input for small, one-man gigs. I saw it in the local shop years ago and had to have it. She's been onstage many, many times.

    2008 Crate BT25 bass amp. 25 watt, 1x10, a real workhorse. Great for small gigs, but mic's up nicely for bigger venues whenever the bass player forgets to bring his big rig. Bought it new off the floor and have loved it ever since.

    1992 Tubeworks TD-752 Tube Driver - 100 watt, 1x12 combo amp, great, loud, clear, and with awesome crunch and sustain. Really funky old spring reverb, very splashy and surf-like. I bought it from on old high school friend when her husband was looking to divest a lot of old gear due to health issues. They shipped it from the Gulf Coast of Florida, and the old beastie travelled well.

    1980's Fender Sidekick 15 Chorus - Small 15 watt, 1x8 practice amp. Made in Japan, probably around 1985. Bought it used in Germany, and she still plays like a champ. I leave it in the music room, linked to the small Marshall amp listed below, via the stereo outputs of an old Digitech multi-effects processor pedal.

    1980's Marshall Lead 12, Model 5005 - 12 watt, 1x10 practice amp. Loud, clear, and absolutely lovely. I replaced the old Celestion for a new greenback just a few years ago, and this thing sounds like brand new. I also bought this in Germany, probably around 1991. It's set up for Germany's 220v power supply, so I keep a small transformer in the bottom of the case, and it really doesn't cause any noise, surprisingly enough.

    Okay, I'm gonna shut up now.

    I use a kinda strange seasonal mix

    Excelsior Pro - my warm weather garage amp for my Kingpin & Tele, I need a hand truck to move it around these days

    Fender SS Champion 110 - my in the house low volume winter amp and carry around when I go visiting. I put a WGS 10" Veteran and a Mod reverb in it and it sounds much better.

    Trace Elliot TA 30 for my Guild Songbird with both US and SB transducers. I also use this one alot to play recorded music on my phone when I am working outside in my garden.

    When I am inside and upstairs during cold weather and don't want to disturb she who watches TV, I use a compressor to a EQ pedal to an Ambient Echo delay to an American Sound that goes into an old sound blaster in my desktop and out to a 1970 Zenith SS stereo tuner amp with 4 old school bookshelf speakers. This really sounds full while actually being quieter than an acoustic guitar. This set up got me using flat wounds on my Tele.

    1. U.K. Made ; 2003 Carlsbro 50 Top and 4x12 ; [ prototype made for 2004 winter NAMM. Signed and dated inside. FOUND the cabinet in California and then found the matching head in TEXAS two months later. The odds of having reunited them is staggering. Near as I can tell, the only one on cream covering on exhibit that year. It's got that great clean to plexi tone when pushed. I hate to compare it to a Marshall because it's got its own unique awesomeness going on. This is my weekly player at practice ]
    2. U.K. Made ; 2003 Carlsbro 59 Spirit. [ I could fill a book with the story on this one. It's another prototype amp made for 2004 winter NAMM. Only one was made despite the interest it generated. The build on this one spared no expense. It's my best combo amp and it sounds amazing. Impeccable build quality just like the 50 Top. Speaker is a U.K. Celestion classic lead 80. Fun fact ; the Cabinet was actually made by Matamp in the U.K. ]
    3. 1982 Marshall JCM800 (2204) 50 watt head [bought it cheap and it has that great rock sound. And even though I prefer cleaner tones, it's sticking around with me]

    4. Fender Greta 2 watt amp [fathers day gift and living room practice amp so this has immunity from ever being sold]
    5. Fender 5e3 tweed deluxe Clone in a purple "mini blues breaker" cabinet wIth two alnico 10" speakers. [ The circuit more closely resembles "the edge" version. Mercury magnetics transformers. High quality build. This is my low watt gigging amp ATM. Picked it up for $93 shipped to my door. Lol ]

    6. Various amp projects lumped into one. But the real number of amps is around 8+ if I ever get them finished. 1965 Ampeg Rocket II. 1967 Ampeg Gemini II. VHT 36 watt TMB build. Fender Harvard clone.

    Four amps. A SF Fender Twin Reverb, AB763 (late 60's). A Deluxe Reverb Reissue. A Traynor YCV40 with two 10 inch speakers and a Traynor YCV20. Used to own a SF Vibrolux Reverb and a SF Princeton Reverb but sold those back when I was a teenager (some 30+ years ago now).

    It's perfect except for some cat scratch on one side of the cab.

    I have a Fender Super Champ X2 15w, Fender Mustang II 40w, Honeytone, and a no name SS 5 watt amp from the....60's or 70's...Maybe? I paid $5 for it in a second hand store...I also have a Luna 25w acoustic amp, and a Marshall AS100D acoustic amp that is simply phenomenal.
    So 6 amps right now.
    I took a hiatus from playing live for 3 years and sold most of my electric gear, including most of my guitars. At one time I had at least 15 amps. It is a sickness. The one I regret letting go of the most is my Deville 40w.
