    I have two many amps as it is for my liking, but they all get played.

    I have a Marshall Class 5 combo and Head, which gets about 80% of my church gigging. My Egnater Rebel 20 is used for gigs with my Contemporary Christian band and when I need more headroom than the Class 5 can muster up. My Vox AC15 is my "grab and go" amp for practices and when I just want to jam.

    Although I must say, the AC15 is started to get MUCH more playing time!

    Amps are like stray cats, a whole lot easier to pick up than to get rid of. Any more my personal practice amp is a jamvox which is really convenient for just noodling stuff out. What I'm missing is a small 'grab and go' as you put it that is convenient for, well, grabbing and going. My MusicMan weighs well in excess of 70 lbs and the boogie is right there with it, both are excessively powerful and the MM in particular is just over the top. Thinking about maybe one those new 'mini' amps that are everywhere nowadays, but that'd probably be the start of a whole new gas adventure ..

    Peavey Valveking 112. had pretty good luck with this amp. plan on doing a tube and speaker swap when i have the spare cash. the stock speaker does seem to get better sounding once really broken in. as otheres have mentioned really nice clean sound and personally i've had decent luck getting good distortion tones as well ( i play a lot of hard rock and classic metal).

    i also have a 1979 Legend Rock and Roll 50 2x12 which i've had forever. needs some work though.

    Blackheart Handsome Devil 15 Watt tube combo with Bitmoco mod soldered

    When crunched it sound really Marshall-ish, but it is too loud! I use custom 'Ritchie's Sound' warm-up pedal

    When I play at home or somewhere where the volume has to be kept low I plug into my Fender Blues Junior, Champion 600, Mustang II (mostly for recording some ideas) or a Yerasov GTA-15. At larger gigs or when I´m alone I love to plug into my Marshall TSL 60 or Fender ´57 Twin RI, which is tone heaven for me.

    Some great stuff in this thread. My collection is less exotic than some but they keep me happy.

    Crate V1512
    Crate VC3112
    Peavey Valveking 112
    Egnater Renegade head with a 212 cab
    Fender Blues Deville 410 (just got this one used but it looks like it will be a keeper)
    Peavey Special 130
    A few assorted cheap SS amps

    None of the SS stuff gets played at all anymore. The Valveking has been seeing the most action lately and will get a new speaker as soon as I figure out what to put in it.

    edit: BD 410 apparently not a reissue since it looks like production was in 6/95

    '0? Micro Cube - just because...
    '03 Champion 30 dsp
    '04 Champion 30 dsp. Stereo rig number 1. They are like having a Princeton Chorus, only you can really separate the speakers. :grin

    1965 Bandmaster w/ 2x12
    1967 Bandmaster w/ large 2x12 cab. Stereo rig #2. If the first stereo setup doesn't get your attention, this one [email protected]@n sure will. The power of a Twin through twice as many speakers

    Hmm, seems like in amps I have a Fender habit...

    Egnater Rebel 30 head/cab into an MXR ZW OD. I am looking into a POD HD500. Cant say enough good things about the initial tones I get from the Rebel especially the CLEAN channel..loves pedals too.

    Just recently rekindled my love for playing so still looking for a good sized gigging amp but i'm currently using a small 5 watt, hand built amp for practice. It is hand built in small numbers in Dublin. Its a single ended class A design, handwired turret board, valve rectification etc. Sounds great and i'm sure you can guess whats its modelled on lol

    1990s eras solid state Fenders.

    Fender Princeton 112 (35W with Celestion Vintage 30 speaker): I use this amp for home practice and recording guitar solos.

    Fender Automatic SE (25W with Celestion Rocket 50 speaker): I call this amp 'The Punisher'. It's a squealer in high gain mode, but I like to use it when I want to travel light.

    Fender Ultimate Chorus (2 x 65W stereo with two Celestion 7080 speakers). Ultra buzzy distortion, but I don't mind it when I want to get that sound.

    Fender Roc Pro 1000 (65W with stock Eminence speaker). The amp has a good classic rock tone: very Marshally in the drive channel and very Fendery in the clean channel. The stock speaker sounds a lot like a Celestion. I like to use this amp for gigging. It has two gain channels, one quieter and one louder, and it's perfect for footswitching between rhythm and lead settings. I set the gain on 3 for the quieter channel and the gain is set at 7 on the louder channel.

    All of the amps are made in the USA except for the Automatic SE.

    Your comment made me laugh, thanks. I needed that after a crappy day at work...Good day for NO headphones!
    Guess I'll do a Super Sonic mod on my Mustang 1 and do a "Hendrix at Berkley" imitation ;-) Wonderful little amps,eh?
