    How many amps do you own?
    And how many of those do you use regularly?

    I've got five:


    1. Fender Hot Rod Deluxe GB
    2. Roland JC-120
    3. Roland Cube 80x
    4. Vox AC30
    5. DV Mark Little Jazz


    I'm going to sell most of them and get a Fender Twin Reverb or a Fender Tone Master Twin.

    Keeping the Little Jazz as a practice amp...

    I also own five, which is too many, but selling probably wouldn't bring in enough money to be worth the effort.

    Fender Vibrolux Reverb, silverface from the early '80s
    AI Clarus, old Series 1
    GK MB200
    DV Mark Little Jazz
    Peavey Rage150

    I've given the Peavey to my son for a practice amp. It's old, and its primary asset is that it was cheap. I mostly alternate between the Clarus and MB200 at home, and the Little Jazz when away, because it's so portable. I don't play through the Fender often, because everything else sounds better to me. Well, not all, it does sound better than the little Peavey.

    1) Fender Twin Reverb '65 RI
    2) Mesa/Boogie Lone Star
    3) JazzKat

    I have many different guitars (and guitar configurations), and these amps handle them all really well.
    I recently sold a Marshall JCM 2000 TSL 100 - just not for me...

    Next target - I think - an AER Compact 60.

    Well: this is my first post - IIRC - after years of mere lurking. Great forum, full of interesting and competent people.

    I hope to contribute something back, in a way or another...

    I use two regularly. Little Jazz and a Roland JC-55.

    I also have a Roland KB-150 - kb amp, but I've played some gigs with it. For some reason, they don't cost much and they can be handy to have around.

    Did put the Laney up for sale but it's old and the offers were nowhere near enough to warrant selling it. I'll probably still use it at gigs in the future anyway. The other two get used a lot out, and at home.

    SS,

    Which amp do you like the best? I might add two different cases. What sounds the best with the D'a since it has a floating pu, and is it a different choice if it is the CES Gibsons.

    However, my curiosity about "The Blu" by Henriksen is doing me in.

    I own three amps: I mostly use the two solid state amps when playing straight ahead solo jazz. The AI + Chameleon when using a guitar with a KA HB + Barbera because I use both amp channels and a the HF driver in the Chameleon. The Evans is just a great sounding, light weight, grab and go combo for clean straight-ahead jazz. I use the Redplate for playing blues and rock where both clean and overdriven sounds is called for.

    Solid State Amps:
    1) Acoustic Image Clarus 2R Series III Head + Buscarino 1x8” Chameleon Speaker Cabinet
    2) Evans RE 200 1x10” Combo Amp

    Tube Amp:
    3) Redplate RP40 40w, 6L6, Tweed/Blackface 1x12” Combo Amp

    The Henriksen Blu has become my favorite jazz guitar amp (for both floating and built in pickup guitars) and would be my last amp if I were to go down to just one. That said, I would still also want to have a tube amp for playing rock and blues with my solid body guitars.

    And if I continue to play big venues, I need an extension cabinet for the Blu (any of my Raezer's Edge cabinets would do). Guys who do not play out, or only play in small venues can do just fine with the Blu.

    Four and I feel like that is probably two too many. But I haven’t the heart to get rid of them.

    Rivera Jazz Suprema 50. Majestic sound. Just amazing. A bit heavy for me, so doesn’t leave the house much, unfortunately. Has to be a special occasion to risk the back.?

    Henriksen JazzAmp Ten that I like to partner with an RE Stealth 10. In stereo, it gives the Rivera a run for its money. And, if I don’t go the stereo route, simple to grab and go like the AER. Unless I am plugging an acoustic in, it’s going out with me more and more.

    AER Compact 60 3. Has traditionally left the house the most since I can carry it and my guitar in one trip. I love that convenience. But since the Ten arrived, it’s going out less and less. But with two inputs, quality of sound, and light weight— it’ll never get sold.

    AI Clarus 2R paired the same RE Stealth 10. I rarely use this anymore, but see no reason to sell it.

    Quilter 101R
    Deluxe Reverb
    Supro 1x8
    Roland Microcube
    ZT Lunchbox

    The quilter gets the most play and is my every day amp. Deluxe needs to be retubed. Supro isn't loud enough to play with others, but is cool in the studio. Microcube gets used once in a while outside/on trips. ZT is pretty much just a backup.

    With regards to the first run Peavey Classic 50 - I assume you don't mean the 70s era Tweed Classic Peaveys (and I think that was only a 100 watt amp - they didn't make a 50 watt version), and you mean the 90s era Classic 50? I had a 1993 Classic 50, and it was quite the workhorse amp for gigging. It weighed a ton, but it served me well, for a lot of gigs. I got rid of it, because I wanted more gain, and ended up going the Mesa Boogie route from 1995 until 2000. I miss my old Classic 50 sometimes, but then I remember how much of a hassle it was to lug from my car to the stage.

    I also had a Gorilla I bought new shortly before I graduated from college in 1987, for $100. Yep, what they wrote in the Gorilla ads back then was true - nothing screams like a Gorilla!

    While I didn't have a Dual Showman, I did have a blackface '65 Showman, that I gigged with in a band back in 1990. Because it was basically a Twin Reverb in a head form, without the reverb, that thing was CLEAN sound-wise. Even if you cranked it up to 10 (when it was downright deafening), all it did was sound a little gritty. But it sure took pedals well. I got rid of it, because, it wasn't very linear volume-wise. At 1 or 2 on the volume control, I could hardly hear myself on stage. When I turned it up above 2 volume-wise, everybody complained that I was too loud! Ugh! It was all or nothing.
