For about 8 years or so, the only physical grouping photo of "all" the electric gear (guitars/basses/amps/cabs) I had was one that I took on a Saturday in our old office library back in summer of 2012, before we wound up the firm. Of course, pieces come and go, so it wasn't accurate within a few years of that, if not sooner. But it's such a hassle to hunt everything down, put it all in one place, arrange it, photograph it, and then put it all back, that I couldn't be arsed to do it again. Plus, I've always done a "collage" type photo of the guitars, at least, which was very easy to update.

Anyhow, in 2020 I finally got round to dragging all the gear out on the driveway here at stately Casa Krashpad. It turned into a 2-day thing because I'd forgotten that I lent out a bass to one of my son's friends, and by the time he brought it over, it was dark, haha! But eventually it got done.

Of course, eventually I sold some stuff and bought some other stuff, but I resisted doing another "driveway grouping" simply because of the hassle factor. Until this last Saturday!

Here's the amps-only shot (check the "Other Guitars" forum for the shot with all the guitars added):

You truly have an amp for any type of gig! Do you have a pile of extra tubes or do you just move them between amps as needed?

Glad you got that Spark. You were seriously under-amped;).

Which one is your favorite?

The "lawyer's answer:" it depends...

On what use it's being put to. For my main (punk rock and roll) band, my go-to tends to be the Sovtek head, with either the 4x12 Risson cab or the Kustom 1x15 cab. Although I will probably try out the Sovtek head with the Marshall 4x10 (a recent acquisition) as well. I've also used the Sunn, the Super, and a Marshall mini-stack (the 5210 and 5275) for that band, at different points over the years.

For lower-volume scenarios, such as a side band I'm in, with no drums that does weirdmusik/"performance art," my go-to is the li'l Fender Super Champ XD, as it doesn't have to be loud, and has onboard effects. Sometimes for that band, if I need more oomph than the SC XD 1x10 15W, I'll make a little "mini-stack" with the SCXD as controller amp, and the Lead 20 slaved to it. (See attachment, photo at an unmic'd outdoor gig with a cocktail kit)

So, basically, different tools for different jobs!

I neglected to preface my comment that your driveway needs a Vox Super Beatle,
with how cool all of those amps are!!
