    Ampeg VT-22, Deluxe Reverb, Pro Reverb, Marshall 50-watt head, G-K solid state, Trace-Elliot Velocette, Blues Jr., Eganater Rebel, Egnater Tweaker, various modelers & software amps. I know I’m forgetting some oddball I used to have... damn aging brain, anyhow.

    Current: Fuchs ODS 50. It makes every sound I like, so I can’t justify having others.

    I'm in!

    Park G10 Practice Amp
    Peavey Studio Pro
    Peavey Triumph 120
    Fender Prosonic
    Laney LC15R (this was silver!)
    Mesa Heartbreaker
    Hartley-Thompson HTV18 (sadly lost!)
    Orange OR120
    Vox AC50
    Marshall JMP50 (a 1974 NMV in a white head cab - but the cab was non-original)
    Cornford Harlequin
    Cornell Romany
    Blackstar HT5 Head
    Laney Lionheart 20 Head
    Fender Mustang I Practice Amp
    Vox AC50
    (no, not the same one)
    Wienbrock ME-3 Pro
    Bentley D'Luxe (one-off / prototype)
    Orange Micro Terror
    Orange OR120 (no, again, not the same one).

    I think that's it. I occasionally remember things I've owned - like the Triumph 120 or the HT5, or the Prosonic - where I had them for a short period, never really bonded, and think I might like to own one again. But then I remember that I must have let them go for a reason, and when it comes to the Vox and the Orange, the reason was cash, not that I didn't like them.

    I could see myself chasing a Cornell or a Cornford again, though.

    Not that many! Guess I'm not an amp guy. I know I'm forgetting a few . . .

    Alamo - model unk.
    Univox U65RN
    Ovation Cat System - Amp and hi freq horns
    Ovation Mako
    Fender Princeton Reverb

    Still have all the Fenders. Hadn't played bass in awhile. Moved some furniture one day and rediscovered the Frontman.
    Wanted to add a small Marshall and Vox, but now I'm looking hard at a stereo Roland JC-22.

    In chronological acquisition order (*still have):
    1x8" Sears beginner's amp
    2x12" Sears solid state with Graphic EQ combo. Loud and gigged it, too.
    4x12" Peavey solid state head/cab. Stolen (who would want to steal a SS Peavey?)
    4x10" Ampeg VT-40 clean, clean, clean.
    Acoustic 165 1x12" Boogie wannabe. (gigged Top-40 in 79-81 with this appliance)
    Two Fender Princeton II combos - the Rivera era (I thought it was awesome in the early 80s; recently reacquired one of my old ones didn't like it near as much as the PRRI)
    Peavey Classic 30
    *Vox AC30CC (in the avatar); the tone is worth the weight (get it?)
    *Fender Princeton Reverb RI (PRRI)
    Fender SF Deluxe Reverb
    *Morgan AC20 Deluxe head/cab
    *Silvertone 1484

    • SLO-100 - have had it for 15yrs and still feel the same way about it as the day I got it....I've never wanted to get rid of it. Although I don't use it often, when I do, I still love it as much as the first day I got it.
    • Matchless C30 - have had it for 11yrs. Same thing.

    • Two Rock Custom Reverb v.2 50W - had it for 5 years, and loved it when I first got it. But, gradually fell out of love with it, and sold it this past December.

    A Modded Crate bassamp as a power amp for ADA
    Crate 4 x 12 cab
    Fender Performer - This amp I should have never sold, Played most of my gigs with it, it sounded awesome through my...
    Randall 4 x 12 cab
    Peavey Transtube head
    A No name plastic box amp I'd use my Metalzone on to practice quiet.

    All the above gone

    All I have now
    Peavey Transtube Studio 1 x 12 combo amp, the amp I bought when I started playing again, used in a coverband for a couple months, now it's a poweramp for...
    Randall 2 x 12 Cab
    Kustom HV 65
    Kustom HV 20
    I will never part with these 2 Kustoms, great amps and they both will let you slave them from their inputs.
    2 Peavey Rage practice amps
    Fender Rumble 15 Bass combo amp

    My lady's uncle said he has an old Fender amp someone gave him, he's bringing it up in a month or so, could be something like a Twin, could be an M-80, I'll flip if it's a Performer, maybe my old one as he lives down there these day.

    Other than that I have no need of a new amp, so I'll be patient till I "need" one.
