How many amps do you have? How many have you had?

Currently:
Peavey Delta Blues 115
Peavey Studio Pro red stripe
Vox AC4 TVH with matching cab loaded with a Celestion G12H55
Roland Cube 15X

Does an Eleven Rack into a pair of Alesis monitors count?

In the past, not in any order:
Peavey Bandit x2 first one stolen
Fender Bassman
Roland Cube 60
Vox AC15
HH100 PA amp
and a couple of others who's details I can't recall.

I have 3. I have had 7 actual tube amps (including the 3 I still have) plus 2 solid state practice amps.

Current 3:

I have had 10, but sold one. It was an Orange Micro Dark with matching 8" cab. It was a lot of fun, but I couldn't get happy with it. It was probably the cab, but I've always preferred Marshalls anyways.

Now:
Bassbreaker 15
Monoprice 15
SCXD
Peavey Revolution 112
Crate Vintage Club 20
Vox Pathfinder 15R (dead)

Then:
70s-something Princeton Reverb
80s Princeton Chorus
Peavey Bandit
Roland Cube
VHT Special 6
Vox DA-5

I want to sell the SXCD and one other amp and get another Princeton, but I can't decide whether to sell the BB15 or the Monoprice. Both have their strengths and weaknesses - maybe with a PRRI I won't need either one tho...

Now:

A Marshall JTM45 through a 2x12 Orange cab with Celestion Golds. (And an attenuator to keep from blasting my eardrums—and all the windows—out.)

I’ve got a Marshall Origin 50 head and a HRD that I don’t use and hope to eventually sell to help fund a low powered combo to go with the JTM45. Probably a Fender ‘57 Tweed Deluxe. (Although, I’d really, really like a Marshall 1974x Combo. But, holy crap. That’s now $3300. That’s actually stupid money for an 18 watt amp. Or, pretty much any amp, really. Short of winning the lottery, that one looks unlikely.)

I had a Vox AC15CC for a couple of years, but it had that crappy speaker and putting a Blue in it would have cost more than the amp was worth.

After spending a lot of money over the years on really good guitars, I finally figured out that the adage was true: “if you have to choose between playing an expensive guitar though a cheap amp, or play a cheap guitar through an expensive amp, buy the expensive amp.”

In 2012 I bought an Indonesian Hamer XT SATF off of HelloMusic (damn, I miss that site!) for $173 after a $25 coupon. It has cheap stock pickups and sometimes a saddle or two vibrates and it is really annoying.
It sounds absolutely AMAZING through my soldano astroverb.

Not as many as guitars....but recently went on a minor bender.

Gorilla amp -gone
Crate td-70 gone
Peavey nashville 400 gone and wish I still had
Crate excalibur 900 head with marshall 4x12 gone
Laney aor50 with fender 4x12 and later a traynor 4x12
Crate blue voodoo 50 head
Peavey 5150 head
Marshall jcmtsl2000 head with 4x12 cab gone (here is where I realized big amps were overkill most of the time)
Traynor ycv 80 2x12 combo gone
Traynor ycv 50 1x12 gone
Mesa boogie f-50 gone
Line 6 DT 50 head with a vox 2x12 cab (still own and love) this has a 25 watt setting...still too much
Line 6 DT 25 (has a 10 watt setting) gone
Panama shaman 20 (with 10 watt setting) gone
Paul Reed Smith MT15 head (has a 7 watt setting) current main amp. Running through a HR deluxe 1x12 cab. This thing is the bee's knees. Ill probably always keep the DT 50 because we have been through a lot. But this prs is insane.

I was thinking about this, and realized that since I started, I couldn't recall every amp that I have had. I think it is around 15. Currently have too many. I'm at 5 now.
Hi all and season's greetings.

Amps!
5 x AC30
1 X V125 climax
1 x 78 Marshall
1 x 82 Marshall
2 x Ashdown fallen Angel's.
About 6 Fenders.
About 9 Ashdown bass amps
1 x Marshall bass amp
A couple of bass amps I can't quite remember names.

I just love music, it's all I need to breath really outside family.
None of that synchronized stuff, I suppose its noise of a sort BUT it ain't music.

Keep safe all in these iffy times.

Hi Little boy blue.

Is that a reference to the 1960s single ?

And I have another AC30 on it's way.1964 blue case, grey top with blue speakers.
The next town across recon they sound great when I daisy chain them
