    There are none I regret selling and I liked most I've owned.

    1) the 1966 Super Reverb amp I bought from Grant at the Twelvth Fret in Toronto
    2) the mint early 70's Fender Princeton Amp I was offered in 1978 for $100 and I turned my nose up at it.
    3) the tweed champ that was thrown in on a deal when I bought my current Marshall combo amp. I should have at least kept it as a conversation piece.

    Actually, there's none that I really miss but two that I'm still kicking myself for NOT buying:
    1. Dumble ODS Combo for $2500 6 years ago. I thought my Fuchs sounded just as good (well, it did but that doesn't change the fact that I could cash in someday...)
    2. Trainwreck Express: Dave's had it in for less than a weekend. Dave was going to sell it to me for a small profit, at $7k. I told him he probably could get more than double that (he's a friend), and he put it on the website at $15k, it was gone in 15 minutes. So I never got the chance to play it let alone make an offer on it. I probably would have passed-idiot!

    My first good amp. 1971 small box 50 watt Marshall full stack.
    Bought it in 1978 and sold it in 1980.

    I downsized to a Peavey Pacer (!) and later to a Yamaha G100-2x10.

    My first tube amp, a Peavey Bravo 112. Pretty much did everything I've ever needed an amp to do. If I had just kept that I think of the thousands I could have saved!!!
