Fender Practice amp - speaker blown
Danelectro practice amp - broken
T-Power amp - returned to dad
Fender bass practice amp - head part broke
Fender practice amps pieced together
Fender M-80 - tried to fix something minor , didn't work
Crate half stack
Fender Bassman 10

I'd like to progress to not breaking stuff. The guitar list is much longer.

Westbury pratice amp
Peavey Musician MarkIII
Acoustic (forget the numbers but baby blue old one)
Ashly pre amp/power amp /JBL E120
1963 Fender Vibroverb (ceased by police)
Roland JC120
Peavey Bandit with JBL E120
Boogie Mark2B
Peavey Classic 30
Groove Tubes Solo 45
1962 Fender Bassman*

VHT Prototype
1957 Fender Vibrolux*

I still have amps marked with (*)
I'm sure I forgot a few.
The Bassman is the amp I play out on. The traynor is new and may take it's place as a gig amp. The Vibrolux is just for recording and what a good amp for recording it is.

Fender Frontman 15R- left at friend's house, never returned
Fender Princeton 112 Plus- main amp

I've got a long way to go. I'd probably be happy with a Blues Junior or a Hot Rod Deluxe, but I go to school and don't work right now, so I have no spare money to go around.

Peavey "Transtube" (ha) 112 combo - sold to some dude whose kid was just getting started w/guitar
Ampeg VL502 - sold on ebay once I realized it was only good to approximate the sound of ripping tape off of cardboard

Marshal JCM 800 4210 combo, sounded like ass, sold shortly thereafter
Traynor YBA-1A Bassmaster MKII (still have)

I don't even wanna try models, I'm just gonna list brands, in the order I first owned them (best recollection anyways)

A # in front means I still own at least one amp by that manufacturer. The number after the manufacturer is how many of their amps I own as of 5/1/2008.

------------

whoever made "The Can" amps
Crate
# Fender (2)
Peavey
Kustom
Seymour Duncan
Nemesis
# Traynor (642)
# Laney (4)
Roland
# Ampeg (4)
# Marshall (3)
Hiwatt
Sound City
# TUSC (1)
# VT (1)

The amps that I use the most are an unmodified YBA-1A and a YVM-1 I made into a JCM800, for playing loud, and mostly the VT DeciMate for playing at home, though we have a YBA-2A here as well. Second-most used for loud would be the Laney AOR single channel 50W guy.

Oh my god I had no idea that this amp existed. I hope that the grill cloth was made of flannel.
