    One. That's all I can carry at a time. No more Marshall. No more Fender........ I use a Fishman Loudbox Artist (120 watts) for smaller venue gigs. I use my PA (650 watts) for larger & outdoor gigs. I need clean for vocals and the guitars run through my pedal board so I don't need amp effects for anything. Crap - I just remembered - I have two. I forgot the Pignose. If it was good enough for Jimmy, it's good enough for me. I can dirty up the Pignose and run that into the mixer as a guitar pre-amp as necessary for tone/effect.

    Wow... some people have some impressive collections. If I had more room I would have more.
    Currently for guitar I have:
    Blackstar Club HT 40 1x12 (with Scumback H75)
    Peavey Express 112 (with Laney HH)
    Laney Pro Tube AOR 30 1x12 (with Emi Private Jack)
    EVH 5150III 50w with EL34 head
    Cabs: Avatar 2x12 (w/Emi Manowar s); Laney 2x12 from the 80's (w/WGS ET90 and Celestion A type); Laney IRT 112 (currently has Swamp Thang, normally has a V30).

    For bass:
    Fender Bassman 200 combo
    EBS Reidmar 750
    Older Fender Pro 410
    New Fender Rumble 115

    I recently sold my Carvin V3M 50 watt head in a rare moment of clarity and pragmatism. The EVH is better in all regards, I couldn't justify keeping the Carvin.

    I will buy more amps in the future I'm sure.

    Sometimes I count 10, and sometimes I count 11. But I think there's probably at least 12.

    I'd have to go look. I'm not sure where they all are.

    52 (can't never have enough amp sound variety), 50+ years of collecting and rarely selling.

    Oldest is a 1948 Gibson BR-6 for lap steel and guitar, a slightly younger 1959 Gibson GA-8 Gibsonette Les Paul amp, to a trio of Fender Princeton's (1965, 60 and 57), a pair of 1965 Fender Deluxe and Reverb, 61 Fender Blonde Tremolux, 62 Fender Blonde Bassman, early 60's Super Reverbs, Twin Reverbs, Pro, Champs, Bassman and Bandmaster heads w/org Cabs. The youngest amps I have are a 1981 MusicMan 110RD and a '81 MusicMan One Thirty Head HD with two 2x12 Bass-Ported Cabs (Eric Clapton's fav concert amp), a 1965 Vox AC-30 Top Boost, a 1981 Marshall JCM800 “Combo” Lead Series and a 1993 Guild Aspen G-600 Electro-Acoustic Amp and 41 other vintage amps in between.
