The list is so long, but I’ve really enjoyed the journey. The ones I have left, in no particular order:

Fender Super Reverb, original pre-CBS 1964 version
Fender Deluxe Reverb, “blackface” handwired by George Alessandro

Mesa Roadking 2x12 Combo
Mesa Nomad 55 4x10 Combo
Mesa California Tweed Head and 1x12 Cab

PRS HX/DA 50 head w/ Marshall 1960A cab (UK Greenback loaded)
PRS HX/DA 1x12 Combo

Vox AC30 30th Anniversary model, Fawn covered, made in 1991

Marshall Haze 40 1x12 Combo, a good “drag around to jam“ amp.

This is it, along with assorted cabs and bass amps, and of course my Axe FX
III Turbo/RJM rig and several FRFR powered cabs. I’ve had several I might want back, but only one I really regret selling: a Soldano/Caswell X99 rack preamp and Soldano 4 space 100 watt power amp, both with that matching purple front plate. I’ve never even seen another pair like them. I dropped the ball in the worst way on that one.

I had to change my poll answer as I thought I only had 6-10 :sweatsmile: turns out I've had a lot more than I thought. Highlight wise, the Blackstar Series One 100 was the first amp I really found "my sound" on and then upgrading to the bigger brother of the Series One 1046L6 made things even better. That was more core tone until I moved to Fractal land.

Clean wise I LOVED my Roland JC 120H. Having it in the head format was much more fun compared to the combo since I could try different speakers with it.

I do remember them all!
Marshall JCM 800
Marshall JCM 900 Hi Gain Dual Reverb
Marshall JVH
Soldano SLO
Friedman BE Deluxe 100

And finally my favorite one:
A custom made Stevens Thirtynine
Special build and voiced for me
Sadly that amp is lost in the flooding. I would have never sell this one.
The most amazing and the most honest amp I have ever played.

I selected “1-5,” but if you count them in modeler terms, it was closer to 12 amps.

(Transplanted from the current firmware thread, apologies for contributing to that derail.)

This might not be 100% accurate, and nobody said anyone gives a hoot, but here goes my amp history from Day 1.
  1. Gregory 1x maybe 10 POS.
  2. Danelectro 1x12, head stowed in the back of the cab.
  3. Silvertone 2x12, ditto stowage.
  4. Preamped the Silvertone with the Danelectro. Pretty cool, before there were multi-stage preamps.
  5. Blackface Bassman. Really cool.
  6. Crammed 2 JBL 15s diagonally into the Bassman cab. That thing screamed, seriously.
  7. Had Dawk Stillwell hotrod the Bassman. Maybe shouldn't have done that. Like a mini Marshall, but it was more unique before.
  8. Beat to hell tweed Twin. Sold it for what I paid, $35!!! Oops.
  9. Mesa Boogie Mark-nothing 15" combo, back when Randy answered the phone and there were labelmaker labels on the back, serial # B-0015. Great amp, never should have sold it.
  10. Wanted a more separate clean channel, so I footswitched in an Alembic F2B tube preamp with the Mesa.
Details get fuzzier from there.
Various preamps including Marshall 9001 (I think?), Sansamp PSA, Rocktron Vudu Valve Online
Some actual amps: Some random Marshal that was too loud to turn on, Hot Rod DeVille, CyberTwin, Helix, Blackstar ID60 TVP that I still have as a rainy-day-amp's-in-the-shop thing

Then Axe 3.

Fender Sidekick 10w

Jvm 410 w 4x12 G12T-75
Vox Ac4
JMP-1 preamp, with magnum44 and 1x12 greenback
Jvm410 stealth w 4x12 greenbacks

The jmp-1 was pretty cool and able to deliver a lot of cool tones

The JVMs might not get so much love, but I think it too sounds nice at lower to medium gain settings. I never even used the red modes.

Some Crate practice amp
VOX AD50VT
Peavey Classic 50 410
Epiphone Valve Jr. head and cab - later paid to be modified by a guy named Twang to add effects loop, eq knob, standby switch lol
Fender SuperChamp XD
PRS Archon 25 combo
Orange Crush 35rt

I would have kept the Archon 25 but it was a bit noisy in the effects loop even with their recommended fix.

Figured out I've owned 38 amps, of which I still have 8. I've found Amp GAS to be even worse than Guitar GAS.
 
In Chronological order, ❌ = No Longer Own ✅ = Still Own

Line 6 Spider ✅ (collecting dust in a closet at my parents house)
Fender Hot Rod Deville ✅ (on long term loan to a friend)
Supro Thunderbolt ✅ (can't frikin get rid of the thing no matter how hard I try. Nobody wants it.)
Dr. Z Remedy❌
Mesa/Boogie Mark IIc+ ❌
1977 Roland JC-120 ✅
1986 Marshall JCM800 2204❌
Orange Thunderverb 50❌

Currently looking for a new amp to replace the Orange.
