Just one, my faithful Deluxe Reverb. I flirted with a Hot Rod Deluxe with Tweed covering back in November. It looked and sounded amazing, but it was too powerful for home use. Here's a shot of the two amps together before I returned it.

I would like to get something smaller in the future, like a Princeton Reverb. Anything larger than a Deluxe would be too powerful, that includes a Super Reverb, Vibro King, any vintage Fender piggyback and any Vox or Hiwatt amp.

Getting too many I think. I forgot I added a Vox VX150 Pro in November. Thinking about adding a Phaez Asheville next.

I have the followings amps:
1. 1963 Fender Bandmaster
2. 1965 Vox AC50
3. 2009 Fender Blues Deluxe
4. 2012 Ceriatone 1957 Bandmaster clone and lastly
5. 1968 Vox Satellite

The Vox Satellite I picked up years ago because of its fantastic shape - but it was a horrible solid state amp. The solid state amp eventually died so I kept the cabinet and faceplate, ripped out the solid state amp and inserted a AC15 clone which sounds fantastic!

For about a year now I've been using an Orange Dual Terror c/w a Marshall 1936 cab with a Celestion G12T-75 and a Celestion Vintage 30. This works pretty well for my band needs.

Also have my littl' miss stay at home Fender Deluxe Reverb ReIssue which works so well with my Ricky 12 string.

Am just beginning to wonder how well one of the new Fender Super Sonic 22 heads would work, in the band and with that cab. Oh yes, I know that this is similar in part to the DRRI but channel switching and being ble to use two twelves for a better spread are important issues for me.
