    You inspired me to do an amplifier inventory.

    19, not counting some one-off 212 & 412 cabs.

    So I'm not qualified to offer any advice on paring down the stable...however I will be closely watching this thread to see what I can do to pare mine down.

    19 amps? Are they all in one place where you can play them as you will?
    If so, very impressed.
    Even if not so, still impressed.

    A Boss Katana Artist takes pedals very well, can be your SS backup, and your practice amp at 0.5w setting. Apartment friendly.

    We haven’t seen a lot of votes for the small tube heads — surprising, and yet not.

    Well, what do you think about the RD-1? I have a Jet City Picovalve that switches between 5 and 2 watts that I love, but I wouldn't want anything lower powered.

    I like the RD1H well enough. It’s one basic sound, but it’s a pretty good one. The single watt is fine; I’m literally a bedroom player who doesn’t play out. However, I feel like there’s probably a pedal I already own that would get this sound out of other amps.

    I used to have a Randall RD1H. Great little amp for the money for home practice.

    If you want loud or tweakable, look elsewhere, though.

    Well, there you go.
    As far as smaller tube heads, I've heard good things about the Jet City 22, the PRS MT-15, and Panama Fuego 15. And I'm sure that they would sound great through your 4x12.

    I’m still working on this. I am thinking of getting rid of the Randalls, the Hughes & Kettner, and the Hot Rod Deluxe for a Blues Jr. and a silver-stripe Bandit. Or something like that. I just can’t see myself getting rid of the Marshall half-stack.

    I'd keep the H&K, they take pedals well and do reasonable home volume pretty well, too. Obviously, the JVM, as well. I'd then look at a 1x12 and or 2x12 that can be used by either/both
