    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.

    I think I have 19 at the moment.

    Basically use 3 of them the most, since this COVID thing happened.

    I sold about 25 others over the last couple of years.

    Probably owned about 60 amps over the last 55 years.

    I've owned and sold more amps than I should have ever had in the first place. The one I own now and play through is a Marshall Origin 20 w/10" Celestion Creamback.

    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.

    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
