    My wife told me I have too many amps and they are taking too much space. I can keep 3-4 amps. Which would you choose? Here are the amps:

    Swart STR- Tremolo
    Marshall Class 5 Combo
    Marshall 1974x
    Vox AC15HW
    Vox AC4
    Fender Deluxe Reverb RI
    Fender ‘68 Custom Princeton Reverb
    Fender ‘57 Tweed Deluxe head
    5F1 clone
    5F2 clone
    Fargen Micro Plexi head

    I’d definitely keep that Swart and PR. Then I’d say the Deluxe and HW Vox15.

    Never let anyone tell you what you can keep. Unless there’s a financial situation, keep ‘em all.

    Buy a wardrobe cabinet. Put all the small combos in it.

    If that's still a problem, I'll store whatever you want in my closets.

    I would keep your favorite of the Swart, 5f1/f2, or Fargen as the low-power combo, choose between the DRRI, PR, and Deluxe for your Fender fix, and pick your favorite of the AC15/1974x.

    If your band has a PA, keep the Princeton. If not, keep the Deluxe.

    Keep that handwired AC15 for sure.

    I'd also keep the DRRI and the '68 Custom Princeton.

    You'd probably want to keep something low wattage after that, so you've got something to play quietly.

    If you let a woman tell you what to do...maybe you should sell them all.

    I mean how many years have You been through this nonsense. Tell Her the amps will go bye-bye when Her shoe collection goes to Goodwill and the Jimmy Choos go FIRST. There’s no way I’d sell ANYTHING. Build a Barn and tell Her NO WOMEN ALLOWED.
    If it wasn’t for women I’d be a multi-millionaire several times over with a seat at the table, but instead I’ve gotta pull myself back up in my mid-60’s just to be comfortable again.
    I don’t care if I win The Lottery. Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, any of those dames, Stormy, they’re OUT. (maybe Stormy on weekends...)

    I'm a fender amp guy through & through. I may try others but only the Fenders stay.
