    My Hot Rod Deville was stolen years ago. Didn’t have the loot to replace and didn’t need that much amp

    No I have a Fender Mustang II and Katana 100

    The mustang is collecting dust though since getting the Kat

    Yup, I finally sold my '66 Princeton Reverb and am more than happy with just my Katana 50 too.

    One of those funky 9v Pignose portables like Ralph Macc used in the movie Crossroads.
    A Bugera V22 with Eminence Redcoat speaker. Seriously nice amp actually.
    Fender 60w Blues Deville 212. Heavenly.

    I love amps more than guitars.
    I think I have more than 100, from 4 to 200w. Many I rent to studios and big venues permanent Backline.
    Amps are instruments in their own way.

    Ibanez TSA5 - 5 watt valve amp with built in Tubescreamer, all for less than a new TS9 pedal. What more could you need?

    For some reason I don't keep buying amps like I do guitars. I'm not upgrading this one until I absolutely have to!

    Ive been intrigued by those for a while , do they sound good and can you run them at 1 watt or 0.5 at all?.

    I had a studio session a while back and had to take an Ac30.
    This one had a crackling noise, I guess a cold solder joint, so I took another one. It waits for me to check it..will do soon.

    I’m a bit obsessed with Mark’s creations, as my list shows. Have you tried any of his newer stuff since he busted out on his own? The Sugarland (as I’m sure is the same of the other Bartel models) is very special. I signed up for one before they were in stores and I have not been disappointed at all. I tend to shy away from the “swiss Army knife” do it all approach, but that amp can go from clean Fender to super saturated Vox to plexi Marshall as advertised. A bit of a learning curve and I’ve therefore not gigged with it yet but it is so awesome to record with. I’m generally not afraid to bring higher-priced stuff out to gigs but that one might have me a little scared.
