    Just one, a Vox AC10C1. I don't play out very often, but when I do I use the Vox wtih a mic on it. Sounds great. I do a lot of home recording, and use VST amp simulator for all of that. I used to use my amp for recording but it's a hassle.

    Right now, I'm down to just 12. But that amount changes quite frequently.

    I have 7, but my Blackstar HT Club 40 is the only one that sees regular use. It's just a great all-around rock & roll amp. I've got two or three others that I should sell.

    Just sold my old Crate Taxi, so down to an all time low of 4. Monoprice 15, 80's Peavey Studio Pro 112, (running these two in stereo) Roland Cube Steer and a Crate 30 watt tube head (V33 I believe) with matching 2-12 cab.

    The head and cab reside at my buddy's place, so in the 5 years I've owned it, I've only used it twice. I have no room at my tiny place for it, but the two times I've used it, it sounded great.

    I try to stay lean on amps and have each one I own serve a purpose without much cross over.

    - 1963/1964 Fender Tremolux: Doesn't leave the guitar room much except for a choice gig once a year or so. Amazing, legit blackface tones.

    - Carr Sportsman: Literally just arrived today, just put up a NAD post. This will hopefully become my all-arounder for gigs.

    - Fender Deluxe Reverb Resissue: Was my gig go-to. If I am sold on the Carr this will probably be sold and moving on

    - DV Mark Little Jazz: (not pictured) Grab and go for jam sessions, rehearsals, back up amp for big gigs

    - Fender Tweed Pro Jr.: Living room practice amp, occasionally grab and go like the Little Jazz

    I have 6 amps, four tube and two solid state. Recently got the H&K and Park and had the Peavey re-capped & speaker swap so I probably won't be changing much near future.

    Silvertone 1391 (5 watt, 8" speaker)
    VHT Special 6 (6 watt, 10" speaker)
    Hughes & Kettner Edition 20th Anniversary (20 watt, 12" speaker)
    Peavey Classic 30 (30 watt, 12" speaker)

    Park G25R (25 watt, 10" speaker)
    Yamaha G50 112ii (50 watt, head)

    Dr Z Maz 18 - its my main gigging amp
    Peavey Delta Blues 2x10 - back up gig amp
    Fender Champ 12 - practice amp for home
    Fender Acoustasonic - not sure why i still have this, need to sell it

    Would love to have a Fender Princeton, maybe someday.
    Would Really love to have a Fender Super, but that cab is just too big to haul around for gigs

    I have a 20W Carl's Custom Amps Blonde 20 in a tweed TV front cabinet and this Carr Mercury that I play in Stereo.

    These amps make glorious sounds, just great tone.

    1. Silverface Champ

    2. Early 90's Fender Performer 1000 (Solid state hybrid -- a terrible amp, but played too many bar gigs in the 90's w it and there some sentimental attachment there....but not enough to take it out of the garage)

    3. PRS HG-70 half stack (that I actually *WON* from a guitar player magazine drawing in 89-90...) the reverb circuit needs to be fixed, and the dirty channel is kind of crappy, but...the clean channel takes pedals really well. the 4x12 Celestions are pretty fat, and let's face it, the way it lights up is fun. It takes up a lot of room, but...I mean I WON the sucker. It's a good luck charm.

    4. Fender CyberTwin, circa 2007 or so. I like it as a stereo pedal platform. Plus the JC120 sound sounds better than a JC120 (stereo chorus without the hiss). The presets and effects are mostly hokey, but used in the right way it's made me some good music.

    5. Tech 21 Trademark 60. A decent little amp.

    6. Acoustic Image Corus -- I used it for a while as an acoustic guitar amp, or as a dedicated amp for the piezo output of my old PRS Hollowbody. Never use it anymore.

    I'm thinking of selling off a few of these and finally getting the balls to just embrace the fact that I need a real good old fashioned tube amp back in my life. I had (you'll HATE me) a 65 Blackface twin bought from a friend of my dad's in the late 90's for 100 dollars(!). It needed a ton of work but I had it restored to greatness. But at 63 pounds and super super loud it wasn't feasible. Those were lean times work-wise and I had to sell it. Still kicking myself. But I think I'm going to get rid of the Acoustic Image and the Tech 21 and get myself a Bassman.
