How many amps do you folks have?

I have four but only use two.
There are plenty of amps that I covet, however I'm very satisfied with my Pathfinder 15r and I don't presently need anything larger.
I've seen it compete well next to my next amp of choice (PRRI) for a fraction of the cost, weight, and maintenance - so I keep reminding myself that I'm good for amps and my life's better without the clutter

The other three are all portables I collected in my quest for a handy battery powered harmonica amp. The Roland MicroCube didn't live up to the hype. The old Vox DA5 had the biggest, fuller sounding speaker but suffers from a pain in the mule interface...

My humble Pignose nailed the sound I wanted right away with a much better sounding distortion. I can't help wonder if digital processing doesn't cope so well with the harmonica's squared sound wave?; The all analogue Pignose's distortion sounds rounder and less harsh.

After trying the other two with my guitars I've settled on the Pignose again as my grab and go portable, it being the smallest simplest solution but with the mostest mojo. If needs must, I pair it with a tidy little MS-50g with more than enough effects; still smaller than a Microcube and way more versatile!

I need to offload the other two.

Oh... It seems I have forgotten the wondrous 5. On my desk there's 5 (five) micro-amps - Voxes (without boxes) and one Blackstar. They all are 1/4 watt headphone amps -the first three made by Amplug with Vox, another made by Amplug with Marshall and the last made by Amplug in cooperation with Blackstar amplification.
These were at a time when I had a very noise-aware neigbor my only resort for playing at the hours I finally got home. Today they work as insomnia cure. Nice little buggers they have three channels each- one for cleans, one for mildly driven and the last for overdrive , and three effects ( apart from the bass one, 3 channels and a fuzz plus rhythm with tap tempo). And crazy as it might seem, for an amp the size of a larger jack , they all have a line-in. Good for phone or ipod jam tracks... so whenever my pain doesn't let me sleep I grab the bass in the middle of the night. And the phone or the ipod... whichever I catch first with the lights off.. I slide outta bed and go for a midnight jam session with imaginary friends...
