    Well, can't show them all because one is left at the rehearsal space (a Roland Blues Cube Artist), and one doesn't arrive until next week...

    Here's what's sitting here now:

    My amps seem to look a lot more interesting if you put something else in the foreground.
    VoxAC15 is my main amp and i pair it with a dry but slightly distorted signal from either a Peavey Classic 50 or a Egnater Rebel (currently at the doctors for an overhaul)

    yeah baby.... Knotty Pine Princeton Reverb with a 12" Alnico Cream. Fender made them several years ago. Always wanted one. They apparently are doing another run, and I got one on sale already....

    My main gigging amp right now is a Vox AC15 C2.
    Still use my Tweed Fender Blues Junior III a lot & I've also got my Fender Hot Rod DeVille 410.. 1AFE7F7A-E8A0-4123-9C7F-BC6083171C56.jpeg 11F584F0-8BA3-4EA3-961E-2EE3AA11C536.jpeg EDFC1BB4-42F4-4BFE-A06A-5289240E2760.jpeg

    I've got a 1974 Fender Twin but can't find a pic.... and, some small Blackstar amp I practice with occasionally since it's capable of very low volumes..

    That's a Dano Fab Echo. Normally I use my DD3, but when I don't want to drag pedals around I have this one readily 'built in'.

    Couple of members of the fleet. 68 Pro Reverb my Dad bought for me and my brother brand new, It sat idle for about 12 years and when I was about 22 drug it out and started playing again. Did not work to well when I drug it out ,,,,,pops, cracks hisses, and hums. Carried it in to a local music store to get it fixed....the guy took one look at it and was trying REAL hard to get me to trade in my "old wore out amp" on a fresh brand new one, Told him I would think about it and carried my amp back home. Why did this guy have such a hard on to trade me out of my "wore out " amp? Did some reaserch and found out why!! After some book learning and studying, I did a cap job on it myself. Quiet as a church house mouse and sounds great now.

    Got a email form MF onr day they where clearing out Kustom 66Darts.....2 for $100. Thought hell even if they sounded like crap I could gut them and build another amp to put in the cool roll and pleat cabinet. But this thing is really a pretty cool easy to carry practice amp. The blue guitar above sounds fantastic thru it.

    Ooh many cool amps! I'm wondering if @Tony65x55 will list alphabetically or chronologically? ;)

    Here's something different. I got a terrific deal this summer on a TEX Bernie. Hand wired, custom circuit by Tony Teixeira of Toronto. The only dealer is Destroy All Guitars, so they're hard to come by: https://www.destroyallguitars.com/amps/360-tex

    Huge edge-of-breakup sound from a very portable combo with a 10" speaker!

    Oh, and my Boss Katana 50 hides in the living room between the sofa and the chair. It’s a lovely fooling around-living room amp.
