Nice to see I'm not the only one with Allens (there was another post by a member who has a couple of them also).
Allen Brown Sugar w/1-15 inch Weber California

Great amps. Have previously owned and really enjoyed a Peavey Classic 30 w/1-12 Weber Blue Dog (great combo!), and a Peavey Delta Blues w/1-15 inch Weber California. Other amps I've had I have no fond memories of.

Nothing fancy Peavey Bandit, almost never play it but it always works. Epiphone Valve Jr, only thing Epiphone left is the cab and chassis. Quilter 101 super light grab and go amp Ceriatone OTS mini, main amp I also use an Ethos Overdrive at church where we play amp less
I’ve got another Marshall inbound. I found a JCM800 Studio 15 at a nice price (offer accepted) on Reverb. It needs grille cloth - but just about every Marshall from this era does. That black cloth they used faded quickly.
The amp is really clean and straight, except for the grille. 😎
I don't really have a "collection" of amps. Guitars, however, I have many. All I have for amps are a 1991 65 TRRI with vintage Jensen C12-N's and a 50th Anniversary Handwired Vox AC15H1TV with a Celestion Blue.
Today is my day off so I sparked up the amps. Something I haven't done it probably a year or more. Plugged a Freakin Sick 30 Volt distortion pedal into the Twin and set the volume at 2 playing a 60's Tribute Les Paul Gold Top through it. It was marvelous to play loud with such an incredible sound. Just a touch of the bypass switch on the pedal and clean-loud-noise to die for.
I plugged straight in to the Vox. Setting it on about 7 makes it to where it doesn't need a distortion pedal. I was playing through the Normal channel in the triode mode which cuts the wattage in half. That's the loudest 7-1/2 watts I think I've ever heard. Sweet distortion and chime all day long when you let up on the throttle.
I'm not sure I need anymore amps. I sold my original 5150 head about 6 years ago because it was uncontrollable. The volume pot on that thing was either off or too stinkin loud. There was no in-between. It had great distortion but the clean sounds were garbage, at least through the Celestion loaded cabinet I have. Other amps sound good through that cab. The Twin grows horns and fangs when I plug IT in to that. Not that I would ever gig with that setup. It's just fun to stand in front of it with the Twin cranked up. I think I loosened some fillings in my teeth the last time I did it.

Marshall DSL15 Combo with Canibus Rex 12" speaker upgrade Fender Bassbreaker 15H with Bassbreaker 12" cabinet; all stock Fender Accoustisonic 30 1963 Sears Sivertone amp in case
I've gone torough a major De-GASing over the past ten years, whittled the amps down from 16 to five. (Yes, I do miss a few that are gone.) Wht's in there now are
Mission Amps 5E3 clone (re-wired to original specs with a twek or two) Marsh 5F4 Super clone Mojotone / Weber 5E8-A Twin clone (The Guvnor!) 1966 Deluxe Reverb 1968 AB763 Super Reverb (This is the one that will be here until the estate sale)
Currently all I have is a very, very old JC 120 a friend sold to me when he was moving away. It must be first run from the mid 70s - metal corner protectors, no bright switches, no effects loop. Too heavy to lug around though. I don't play shows locally anyway.
There's a also a newer Fender Rumble 15 sitting on top if it. I bought that for my daughter in her bass playing days.
Amps of the past: Fender Blues Jr Fender Hotrod Deluxe Peavey Studio Pro 40 (my first amp, currently at my dad's place)
As a kid I figured one day I'd have a big wall of Marshall cabinets somewhere in my house. That hasn't panned out yet...
Currently considering a small combo (Fender Bassbreaker 007, the tiny Marshall Origin 5, VOX AC-10). Current budget is more along the lines of using my daughter's Rumble 15 though.
