    Going with "circuits" here as those I still own are handwired clones:
    • AA1164 Princeton Reverb
    • AA764 Deluxe Reverb
    • 5F2a Princeton
    • Ampeg R12R Reverberocket
    • Vox AC15 (not 100% up on all the variants, but I like a current production AC15's Normal channel)

    Dunno how ya wanna factor in duplicates...
    Egnater Tweaker 15 head

    Fender Rumble 25, gets used for bass and clean guitar

    MY first amp, an old mid-60’s Ampeg tube amp, do not know the model, was too loud for a kid just learning to play at home

    Epi Valve Jr head and cab

    Epi Valve Jr combo

    Some crappy Epi SS amp that comes with a guitar package, maybe 10 useless watts.

    Wish I still had the Ampeg, it was perhaps 5 watts? Heavy as heck and loud as hell, maybe a 10” speaker... The Tweaker gets a lot of use through the Epi cab, the Fender is great for clean rhythm or using the multi-fx, the V Jrs get used from time to time, but it’s kind of “dark” and only has a volume knob

    In no particular order:

    My 5e3
    My 5f1
    My Silverface Pro Reverb
    My Silverface Twin Reverb

    I hope to be adding a Blackbive 6v6 to my stable as soon as I can to fill that low-wattage Blackface need.

    In more or less chronological order because each suited me, equally, at the time of usage:
    SF Twin Reverb
    SF Princeton Reverb
    BF Bassman w/2-12" JBLs
    BF Vibroverb
    BF Deluxe Reverb
    Peavey Classic 30 w/matching tweed cab
    Blues Jr
    Super Champ XD and X2

    Honorable mentions to:
    BF Super Reverb (too big)
    Egnater Rebel 30 (seemed a little fragile but sounds great)
    Sovtek Mig 50 head. (also fragile)
    Don't have the Super Reverb or the BF Bassman any longer.
