    There are a dozen threads asking how many basses people here currently have. I am curious to know how many amps people currently have. I am going to allow the inclusion of combos since not everyone needs a dedicated head.
    This excludes cabs. That would be another topic for another day.
    Current ownership only, please. Not a laundry list of every amp you have ever owned.

    I will kick off my own thread.
    I have a Mesa Subway D800 that is my main, and a Ampeg BA115HP combo that sits in my den. These days I rarely use the combo now that I have a small DIY studio and Amplitube. Growing up I never had the space or money for more than one full sized amp and cab, so the idea of having more than one is weird to me. I don't object to it, the thought just never occurred to me. I guess I should have a back up, but the idea of putting down $1000 for something I won't use 99% of the time doesn't sit well.
    When it comes to live performances and amps, I am very much a set it and forget it kinda guy. Multiple amps seems like it would take a lot of fiddling around.

    That is a pretty impressive collection. Those are mostly smaller heads so I guess they probably don't take up that much space.
    In the 90s I really wanted some of that Eden gear. They kinda fell by the wayside.

    Wow. That is some crazy cat lady territory right there.
    Do you occasionally find amps and say "Oh yeah, I forgot about that one"?

    I don't find amps I have forgotten about too often but sometimes I remember I have this amp at that Practice spot or this one at this friends house and forgot it was even there .

    The two SVTs. Is that so you don't have to move them, or do you find there is a tonal difference between them?

    Bought one and liked it so much I bought another one while the rebate was going on.

    Lots of fun running both. And yes, if one needs repairs I can keep on rockin with the other one.

    Three, all DIY jobs. My rationale is one for EUB (or hopefully AUB eventually), one for BG, and one for utility purposes now that I no longer have a complete PA. I like running stereo or clean/dirty setups sometimes as well.

    Five amps, one for sale. Each is vastly different from the others. I've bought and sold amps in rapid succession for a time, but these stuck.
