    72 Fender Twin- it’s been black faced and is crazy good with the original JBL’s.
    Mesa TC100-Say no more.
    1996 Ampeg Reverberocket- Great single coil guitar Amp and with pedals. Can’t handle humbuckers at all.
    A homemade Vox AC15 style amp with point to point wiring and a Celestion greenback 10”. Great amp in any case but a fantastic little cafe gig or rehearsal amp that weighs nothing.
    Mesa Prodigy Four88 Bass Head. Beautiful clear but warm.

    I'm in the "too many" club.

    Amps are my weakness. I'm now down to 10 amps from WAAAAY too many!!

    A few years ago, I had 22 amps (mostly big Vox and Fender amps) literally filling my garage!! I needed the multiple "big" amps because I played bass more than guitar (live).

    Of the remaining 10 amps, only 4 are guitar specific, now that I'm back to playing just guitar. However, the Traynors can be used for either guitar or bass.

    I use a 45w Quilter as back-up, and "fly-dates," '64 Bandmaster (turned 210 combo) for gigs, '66 Princeton for rehearsals, and '64 Deluxe Reverb in the studio.These last 3 are KEEPERS! Although I don't really want to sell any others, either (except maybe one of the 100w Traynors - they're just too loud for guitar!).

    Well there is a lot of overlap between Fenders and Marshalls. THe original JTM 45 was modeled after a Fender Bassman. So you would be surprised at what you might like.

    I have so many that my wife can't tell them apart from each other, so she can't keep track.

    - 1990-something Mesa/Boogie Subway Rocket Reverb, 1x10", 22w combo
    - 1979 Ashly SC-40 Instrument Preamp (owned since new), in a 4-space 1979 Anvil (brand) rack, w/ a fairly new Crown XLS-1000 power amp (700w bridged mono), into a ported cabinet loaded with a (original) but freshly re-coned 15" Electro-Voice Pro Line 400w EVM - also doubles as a bass rig
    - 2019 Orange Rocker 15 1x10" 2-channel tube combo
    - 20?? Vox AC15C1 in Elegant Purple covering
    - 2 x Blackstar Fly3 5w, 1x3" amps (both fit great in a small backpack to take to homes to give guitar lessons)
    - Roland Cube Street EX P.A./guitar amp (50w, 2x8", very loud, works excellent for solo gigs, takes pedals very well, has a built in chorus to die for, all other COSM tech and effects are icky bee poop sounding, but the clean channel and the voice channel rock)

    - Ampeg BA112v2 bass combo

    I have 4 amps ( plus teeny Smokey Amp, which is actually what I play in apt.)
    all are small, and used for gigs:

    An old Blonde Blues Jr. ('big gig' amp)
    A Fender Frontman 25R ( Jensen spkr.)
    A Vox Pathfinder 15R
    A Fishman Loudbox Mini ( my solo PA)

    All portable, powerful ( enough for me), sound good.

    Four here: two Peaveys--a Classic 50 2 x 12 and Delta Blues 1 x 15--a California Blonde II for my acoustics and vocals, and a Fender Mini Passport with a rechargeable battery for camping and busking.

    Thanks for asking.

    Too many.
    13 amps.

    I need to thin down the herd.

    Especially since I picked up an amp, used, from a pawn shop last month that puts them all to shame.

    I'm almost afraid to write a review on this amp.
    It's that good, and I don't want to jinx it.

    It's so good that it makes me question all my amp choices throughout my whole life.

    It actually makes me want to sell the rest of them off.
    All of them.

    :(

    I do like anything that sounds like a Fender but then don't see the point of buying something like a Fender instead of just buying a Fender.
    Nothing wrong with Marshall cleans, but usually when I hear a good gain sound from a Marshall it's actually from a pedal. I detest the "Crunch" people love to get from their Marshalls.

    Vox AC10C!
    Quilter Interblock 45

    I have to say since I got the Quilter, it's the only one I'm using on a regular basis. It sounds great when I'm playing at home at low volumes through my PA and it's on my pedal board for gigs and sounds great run through the monitors. A really versatile piece of equipment.

    I am writing this to count them. Should mention that I prefer running in stereo, or even better with the effects in stereo with a dry center. That is why you see more than one of the same amp in this list.

    1) 2000 Blues Junior (USA) modified with Bilm mod kit and speaker upgrade to a Cannabis Rex.
    2) 1996 Blues Junior (USA) modified and speaker upgrade to a Greenback.
    3) 2006 Blues Junior (MIM) modified and speaker upgrade to a Creamback.
    4) Early Fender Hot Rod Deluxe, HRD, some mods and speaker upgrade to a Creamback. Have a 12AU7 in V2 which cuts power to about 40%, which really adds in an earthy tone.
    5) HRD III Red Nova, originally sold in Sweden, rewired the transformer to make it run on 110 in USA. It has a RedCoat Wizard, that is similar in tone to a Greenback, but will take more watts. Running a 12AT7 in V2 to bring total output down to about 60%, and give me more control on the volume knob.
    6) Super Champ X2 with a 10" Greenback speaker upgrade.
    7) Custom built cabinet with a Jensen Speaker being pushed by a Hughes and Kettner Blues Master. Sounds like a little Bassman.
    8) Fender Mustang III
    9) Crate Acoustic Amp - Green Tolex two channels that will take XLR or 1/4".
    10) Fender Bass Amp.
    11) Marshall Bass Amp.
    12) Small Fender solid state practice amp from the 90's I think.
    13) 2- Ip1000's and 1- Ip500 that I use for acoustics.
    14) A little Crate solid state amp that I haven't used yet. Amp only no speakers.
    15) An Ibanez wedge bass amp used for practice or low powered open mic type events.

    I think that is all. There are a couple little junk type solid state damaged amps going to the thrift store as donations.
