    I have a cheesy little battery-powered POS, and a SS Yamaha from the 70s or 80s that’s pretty raspy and hasn’t been fired up for over 20 years, so I’m not counting them.

    Marshall 15-watt SS stereo chorus
    Egnater Tweaker 15-watt head
    VHT Special 6 combo
    Fishman Loudbox mini

    Been through a mess of amps, these are what I have now, think I'm done with that game. The Ace Tone was my first amp, close to 50 years ago.

    In order of acquisition, 1973 to date, never sold an amp yet, but need to make a start:

    RSC Phantom 50, SS 1x12 50w
    Peavey Studio Stereo Chorus 70, SS 2x8 2x35w
    Laney LC15, 2 x el84 1x10 15w
    Laney VC30, 4 x el34, 1x12 30w
    Line6 FlextoneIII plus, SS modelling 75w into 1x12, 150w with 1x12 extension cab.
    VHT Special 6 Ultra, 6V6 1x12 6w
    Ashdown 5 Fifteen, SS 1x15 100w bass amp
    VHT 12/20RT, orignally 2x6V6 (12w) now running 2x6L6 (20w) 1x12
    Peavey KBA60, SS 1x15 50w Keyboard amp
    Behringer Ultrabass 180 Head, SS 180w Bass amp head
    Laney LC15R, as LC15 but with reverb

    My inclination is to keep the bold ones and let the others go.

    Vox AC10C1
    - w/Hammond OT (4/8/16 ohm output switch) and a Celestion 10" 8ohm Creamback

    Vox AC4 homebrew
    - original circuit with EF86 and tremolo

    Gibson GA-8 Gibsonette homebrew

    DougH's Firefly
    - with Matchless-style parallel triode input stage (I call it SpitfireFly) instead of the cascode.
    - cascode was too much gain to be stable, parallel triode is sweet, but you still can't dime it without all kinds of oscillation problems

    Only ever had one at a time. Started with a wee little vox modeling amp, traded up to a Princeton chorus solid state, traded up to a blues junior, traded up to a blues deluxe, sold it and built a tweed vibrolux. Now I’m building a hopped up princeton reverb and will have two amps for the first time ever.

    Some pretty swank amp collections. Here are mine:

    Ampeg AX-44c -- interesting late 80's SS/Tube hybrid with stereo chorus. Really not that bad for a cheap 80s amp.
    '73 Twin Reverb -- self explanatory
    Valvetech Hayseed 30 -- basically a mid 60's AC30 clone.

    Guess I'm average so far according to survey.
    1) Dean Markley CD60-awaiting service visit as it blew screen resistor awhile back.

    2) Gibson Gibsonette- Think this is GA8 (2 6V6, 5Y3, 12AX7) Love this amp for guitar, vocals or harp.

    3) Fender Princeton 65 (65 wt SS) Took 3 sessions of resoldering when I got it but has held up now for 5 years. Nice BF sound that I warm up with various low gain pedals. Replaced the speaker and I fear no drummer. Keep the volume on 2-3 unless...

    4) Roland Micro Cube- Great patio/vacation amp or low volume jams

    Hi.

    I'm going to go with the 'list the ones you like / play / aren't junk' approach and say just two.

    A nice little vanilla Yamaha THR10 and a yummy hand-wired Vox AC4HW1.

    But, I live in Japan and when out of the house, spaces tend to come equipped with a selection. Then I tend to favour a Twin Reverb.

    Yamaha THR10C
    Fender Pro Junior IV
    Henriksen JazzAmp Ten

    2020 plan: Fender Rumble 40 Bass amp

    The Henriksen is overkill for me and I would love to sell it to a gigging musician.
