    Use any criteria you like. No restrictions on price, size, power, options, etc. Which do you believe to be the most desired amps for what ever reasoning? But please do list your reasoning.

    Thanks! :)

    Not sure I can name 15 amps, but here are some in no particular order:

    Trainwreck- Never heard one in-person, and quite collectable
    Dumble ODS- Same as above
    The Hendrix Marshall amp about to be auctioned by Sothebys- collectable/cool mojo
    Fuchs ODS-50. Played it, loved it
    Komet Concorde- everybody swears by this one, so must be something magic.
    Budda Superdive 45. Played it, loved it
    Reinhardt Jester- sounds like an amazing amp from the clips I've heard

    Great beginning! No, it doesn't have to be 15. I am a pretty easy guy to please. People, just add one entry if you want.

    Dumble ODS is pretty close to the top of my list.
    Although it is relatively inexpensive, I really want a Bagger too. I really couldn't tell you why I haven't got a Bagger yet. I guess that I get close and then get distracted by some other piece of gear.
