    was looking at my gear & to see what i did/didnt need and realized i had 5 amps, 2 of which are tucked away and never get used. i may even have a 6th cause i believe i have the first one my parents got me for my b-day. i havent seen it in years tho.

    these are just smaller 50-80 watt amps for home use. i use a line 6 jam w/footboard pedal. also have a roctron 80, a crate 65?, gorilla (dont hate on me bro!), the other 2 im not sure of. ive always wanted an impressive stack, but could never justify having one. instead i bought guitars, which is how i ended up with 25-30.

    i think i want to trim down the amps to 3, maybe 4...2/3 for guitar & 1 for bass for when ppl come over. also have a tama kit so i could have a full-on jam session.

    so, how many you have? what purpose do you have them for? anyone collect?

    feel free to add pics :yesway:

    Two amps:

    5150 II with MM OT/choke and a few other modifications.

    Mesa Tverb 1994 40XX (currently under the knife getting a one off dual bias installed in it ATM)

    Saving for a Bogner Uberschall.

    Plans to own a 4th amplifier; my prototype i have spent 3 years in the alpha stage of design between work and studies.

    The purposes of each are distinct. The modified 5150 II fixes alot of the things i had disliked with 5150's. I have owned them all at some point in time minus the 5150 III - i prefer my modified 5150 II and have no reason to switch over. I have sentimental value with this amplifier as well, it paid my bills for years right out of high school. Everything from blues to prog to classic rock/cock rock cover bands. It never let me down.

    Tremoverb just took a long time to find. Always wanted something i could one day dual track against my 5150 II for my heavier projects and core genres.

    Uberschall will handle my progressive metal needs and is one of those amplifiers that has been a dream of mine to own for a long time. Trying to make efforts to make it a reality.

    The prototype has been a lifelong challenge. Things i have learned in 15 years of playing as well as 9 years in engineering put into a single amplifier. I probably have 300 hours in it so far alone. Working on re-designing the clean channel a bit right now. Effects loop is done, PS is done, and transformers are spec'ed. Still working on code and researching a few features. Once i am happy i will port it over to a program i use to generate a BOM, prep the board layouts, and generate gerbers for building. Ill give it a one over with another program and then wait a while to complete the rest of the design phase and actual hardware investment ($$$$) to build it. I have access to flow parts at work so i do not have to outsource anything.

    I own one Peavey Bandit 112. And I'm trying to sell it. No need for it.

    I've moved all-digital, actually. I use my POD and my USB interface hooked up to a Mackie HD1221. I use it for everything, now.

    my main one, a Bugera v55HD, it's in my band-practice room so i use it once a week.

    Fender FM212, it's at home right now, barely use it because i use VST's and stuff when i play guitar. i think i will also bring this to band practice and do a dual amp thing, because it ain't that bad.

    and finally, a 30 watt marlboro amp from the 70's, which currently resides at my drummers place, for when we want to jam, it takes my big muff pretty well and we like to play stoner :p

    Just the one at the moment. (I don't consider my 10w RMS practice "speaker" to be an amp...:lol:)

    Fender Frontman 2x12R. It's got an insane volume jump. 1.2 is louder than 5 for some reason. Anyways, I'm close to replacing it with a Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 18 :hbang:

    Only one - an EVH 5150 III 50 watts. My home rig is computer based so it does not count for an amp!

    I've got 3.

    Engl Powerball V2 that is my main amp. I've had it for 6 years and I have no desire to replace it.

    Peavey 6505 that I got in a trade. It's a nice change up from the ENGL.

    Fender Hot Rod Deluxe combo that I use for clean or slightly over-driven stuff.

    I currently have a Mark IV, 5150, Carvin Legacy, Peavey Bandit and an old Hughes and Kettner Metal Shredder which is a fun little thing. The end result is a lot of cabinets that I can mix and match. I use the Mark IV 95% of the time but still don't see the point of dumping any of the others.

    Ampeg VH140c
    Peavey XXX (EL34'd)
    Digitech GSP1101/Rocktron V300

    Honestly I've been thinking about playing the Ampeg for a while to see if I want to keep it or not.
