    The Marshall solid state I pulled from the snow behind Music & Arts, my new little back-saver Acoustic I got for church whenever we get back to church, the Crate GFX 65, the little hybrid valvecaster into 386 amp in the Cube cabinet, an old Sears guitar amp with a really square wave tremolo and the matching bass amp and also that Stage 100 I got off ebay with the fire damage, with the Tube Works speakers in it. That's 7! And I spent real US money on some amp simulations in AmpliTube on my phone. I play bass through the Crate when I'm just messing around, but for recording I run that direct, so I've never felt the need to own a bass amp at home; there's always one at church and I've not been asked to gig on bass...ever...not like I wouldn't like...to have been...asked...just once...

    I have a Dr Z Carmen Ghia clone and I just got a Yamaha desktop. Between the 2 I have most of my bases covered.

    Fender Champ - '72 or '73
    Fender Deluxe Reverb RI - '2008
    Fender Concert (Paul Rivera Era) - '80's
    Vox AC4V1TV - 2014

    Had a whole bunch of others that I've sold over the years. Anybody else really love 4 or 5 watts amps? It's the only thing I play at home.

    Does a Line6 Pod ProXT count as an amp or an effect?

    More than needed, but you run into one, play through and if the cash is available.... Ah, so: I started my music life 50 years ago with a 1969 Music Man 65-watt with a 1x15. It was paired with a 1969 Fender Showman, same power and speaker cab, built too late in the year by one month to have pre-CBS bragging rights. That head was stolen from our practice space. I still have the Music Man and the Fender 1x15. Also: An original PigNose; a Roland Cube-60 (198-?); a Harmony Power Pal combo, batteries-5 watts?-5 inch speaker; a Crate Limo 50 watt, 1x8 combo, PA and amp; a Jay Turser Classic 10, 10-watts, 1x8 combo; a Roland Micro-Cube GX; and a Bugera V22 Infinium in a 1x12 combo. There's a 100 watt Behringer bass amp and a 100 watt BlackStar ID-Core at my church that I have technically given to the worship team, but nobody else is currently using them as they all play acoustic-electrics and go straight to the board, as does the lone bass player. I've also sold or given away four others over the years.

    Peavey Classic 20
    Vox AC15C1
    Fender Hot Rod Deluxe (mid 90s, FWIW...)
    1969 Fender Super Reverb

    4 and counting!

    I've always wanted to build a tube amp, I'll probably have the chance to in the next year or so, likely a JTM45 clone to scratch that itch.

    All the big amps are in the practice space or studio. It's been 4 and 5 watts in my living room for years. My wife loves music, but doesn't like the clutter. I've got a Jay Turser Classic 10 that has a nice wood face and is wrapped in tweed. It can set next to the couch with no issues. :)

    I have four, two that I use constantly, two that I don't.
    1. Allen Accomplice Jr with 6l6 / bigger iron
    2. Yamaha THR10c
    3. '69 Super
    4. Polytone Mini Brute

    At some point I will get some kind of Vox or Vox-like combo, and also dip into the modeling world.

    Other than a nice 5 watt (or smaller) tube amp, I think that's enough for me. Though there is a pretty long list of amps I'd like to try for a while.
