    Two, counting my bass amp: Vox AC-10 and Hartke 500 something something. I used to have both them plus a Marshall DSL40, Jet City 20 and a Peavey Bandit 75. But the "wall" of amps really took up a lot of space. So I picked the one I liked the best and sold the rest.

    OK, maybe more than I need. All of the following are "heads", I do not own combos.
    1) Marshall Origin 20 head
    2) Dr. Z Carmen Ghia
    3) Dr. Z Route 66
    4) Dr. Z Wreck

    Sold at least 15 amps (all tube), including Fender, Peavey, Vox and Bogner. Don't even ask me about pedals. Lesson learned: if I don't improve my guitar technique and knowledge, nothing sounds good.

    Best lesson learned: get 1 good amp that you like, a guitar you love, and TAKE LESSONS. It will not be easy. As you learn you will aware of how much you don't know. This hobby never ends, but you will be spending your time "hugging" an instrument you love and forgetting about other life issues.

    I have 1 that counts - Mesa Boogie Mini Rectifier.

    I also have
    - Blackstar Fly 3 (great, but not a real amp).
    - a collection of parts that aspires to be a 5e3.
    - my first cheapo combo practice amp, but I converted the box to an extension cab. The head is sitting in my garage somewhere.

    I'm a Marshall hater. The only Marshall sounds I like have a sound engineer behind them tweaking mic settings. The only exception I know of is the 62 Bluesbreaker. Only Marshall amp I ever liked with just a guitar plugged into an amp.

    I'm a Fender dude through and through with most classic styled models bringing plug and play joy.

    I acknowledge that there's a specific sound I like. Fenders have it, Marshalls don't. For those who play other styles maybe a Marshall is a must.

    75 Twin Reverb,
    90's Fender "The Twin",
    Johnson Millenium 150,
    Johnson Mirage,
    Orange Micro Dark,

    Then a hand full of dead amps I never threw out. 4 or 5 I think.

    I have three Goodsell's.....a Model 1958 piggyback (over 3 x 10s)....Custom 33 and my favorite "desert island" amp....a 21 watt Valpreaux.....Goodsell's have incredible tremolo...and such clarity and responsive attitude.....I sold all of my vintage Fenders....these are miles ahead...

    Hughes Kettner Tubemeister 35 combo - I like very much!!

    An 80s Marshall Master Reverb 30w, which is in need for an overhaul (hence the 0,5). I suspect some gremlin in the spring reverb circuit and some pots are going heavy.. It had a nice tone despite its solid state so I might get it fixed soon

    Ampeg Jet
    Ampeg Reverberocket
    Ampeg Reverberocket 2
    Ampeg B-12XT portaflex (blue tolex)
    Ampeg B-12XT portaflex (black vinyl)
    SF Princeton Reverb (celestion Gold)
    BF Vibrochamp
    SF Vibrolux Reverb
    BF Fender Concert
    Gibson Skylark

    These days I rarely need or can move the Concert or portaflexes, even the Vibrolux is a chore. I am starting to think about simulators so I just got an Iridium.
