I have an addiction. Can you help me to stop buying used practice amps?

    I’m an Ampliholic also. When ever I see a 67-68 Fender Drip Edge amp that is in pristine condition I get goose bumps and I want it. Lucky theres not to many of those left anymore or I’d be broke because they ain't cheap.

    I could bore you to tears with a 'becoming a more discerning amp owner'.

    If you have a weakness for practice amps, you might as well grab the good ones.
    I will help by recommending the 80s Fender Sidekick series. Those were great!
    Also, a Champ 12 would be a stellar addition to your collection too.

    I must be a bit weird - I rarely get any GAS attacks when it comes to amps (or pedals for that matter). So while I have 6 guitars, with a 7th on the way, I only have one pedal (Dunlop CryBaby) and one amp (Ibanez TSA5 - actually I have a Marshall MG10 too, but only in case the other one breaks), so in the end all my guitars sound pretty much the same. :D

    I wish I was a cheap amp addict rather than a cheap guitar addict, as amps take up a lot less space.

    I have 5 amps. The reason being is that I like stereo setups. I have two of those. Then one amp in reserve. I probably should fire that one up, it's been sitting for a few months

    Let’s put it this way, I’m down to only four, and that’s limited choices? ;)
