    As many as electric guitars: two.

    A 5E3 Tweed Deluxe and some kind of AC4ish amp, both home wired.

    Mesa boogie express 25, used at home mostly.

    Cube 80 xl, for gigging. Almost got rid of it, finally found a sound that works in the band mix.

    Amplug vox ac30 ;)

    A few, either vintage Fenders, or more-or-less replicas that I've built. Oh, there's a Fishman Loudbox, too...

    Allen Encore build with JBL D120F. 35W 6L6, think Vibrolux...

    '69 Twin, with modern Jensen C12Ns

    '71 Super, with original CTS alnicos

    Tweed 5E5-A Pro build (built the cab, too), with 1962 Jensen P15R

    '77 Deluxe, with the other JBL (no current photo, as it stays at my son's house)

    Weber ReVibe build

    Electric? An Orange Micro Terror and a Blues Junior III. I also have a Kustom reissue Tuck ‘n’ Roll in the loft. I only really use my Micro Terror for my keyboard so I might sell that and just use the Kustom as that’s decent clean.

    I’m going to replace my Ashdown bass amp with something lighter from Markbass. I’m tempted to get a Tone Master Twin at some point too...

    I've gone Marshall clone. Rockitt Retro 50, Avatar 45, and a Trinity 18. I've owned Marshalls in the past, an early 800, a 900, and a 70s metal panel NMV.

    I have two others, which make five amps total.

    Someday I'd like to own an Ibanez semi hollow. Or even a hollow.

    • Bass Terror v1 500w with neo 2x10 for gigging the J Bass (bit dull to be honest)
    • Faulty BJ :(
    • Awesome Vox AC4
    If I get back to gigging 6 strings might invest in an AC10 or AC15, but right now all in love with the AC4 :)

    29 or so.Some are vintage collector's items, but played semi-regularly; several undergoing restoration;

    Many are instrument and/or venue-specific, used when I was still physically able to gig. Since the 70's I used amps I could dial-in near the top of their headroom at each venue I played, allowing me to drive the amp from the guitar. With all the gigs I was doing over the years a large number of amps was needed to optimize my tone.

    I've held onto them as investments and/or because my musician/adult kids asked me not to sell them.

    Three:
    1. Mesa Boogie Maverick 2x12
    2. Mesa Boogie Blue Angel 2x10
    3. Tech 21 Trademark 60 1x12
    #3 is my go-to amp. The Mesas are great, but they are back-breakers. I highly recommend the Trademark 60!

    Currently -

    Amps:
    • Marshall JTM-1 (the 50th anniversary 1 watt combo)
    • Winfield Typhoon head (5 watt EF86 / EL84)
    • 5E3 built by our own muchxs, w/Eminence Red Fang
    • BFPR (Allen PT, pull bright on volume, standby switch, 12" baffle) also built by muchxs, w/Warehouse ET-65.
    • Ceriatone 1974x TMB head. This has LarMar power scaling, gain mod, and a master volume. The TMB channel was useless when I got it - too hissy and too much gain. Pete Cage sorted it and re-voiced the TMB to be more JTM-ish.
    Cabinets:
    • 1x12 made Lamar Warren cabinets, green tolex to match the Winfield head. Weber ceramic Silver Bell.
    • 2x12 Marshall style cabinet made by my friend. It's half the size of a 4x12, has a slightly slanted baffle. Warehouse Green Beret and Reaper.
    Since coronavirus, I've only used Bias FX2 thru headphones. No chance to plug in and crank as someone is always home.

    I am contemplating selling a bunch of the amps and getting either a Z-Wreck Jr or a Cutthroat Down Brownie.
