ART MDC2001 – stereo dynamics processor
Roland SRV330 - dimensional space reverb - great reverb unit!
ART SGX2000 - digital effects system with tube preamp
Alesis Quadraverb - the original one from '89 - studio standard effects system
Dynacord VRS23 - analogue tapeless "tape delay" - fresh sounding reverb

Ibanez AD190 - analogue delay and flanger unit
Ibanez AD150 - analogue delay unit
+ various stompboxes
Marshall JMP50W - my first tube amp - it's from 1981 and it sounds superb on higher volume...
Vox AC30TBR - rare 1972's version of the AC30TB - it's supposed to have reverb onboard (hence the "R"), unfortunately mine lacks the reverb can.
Hohner Orgaphon 41MH - this is an amp from the mid-sixties, meant for amplifying organs, accordeons, but has also input for bass, guitar, microphone, etc. Great vibrato and a very versatile spring reverb!
Hohner Orgaphon 20MH - the smaller version of the 41MH but without the vibrato. One interesting application of these Orgaphon amps is to use them as a "reverb only" amp - split your guitar signal post-FX, apply reverb and set the 20MH to only amplify the "wet" reverb channel. Nice solution to add reverb to non-reverb amps.
Dynacord DA15/V
Dynacord DA16/V
Dynacord KV6 - the smallest member of the family - great design from the '50's
Dynacord KV12 - instant "garage rock" sound
Dynacord Eminent EMT - an early '60's all-tube modest PA-amplifier
Klemt M40 - this is a 1950's all-tube small PA-amplifier that sounds terrific for guitars
Marshall SE100 - not an amp but a speaker emulation / power soak unit - Swiss army knife of a recording guitarist. Especially well-suited for late night tracking when the kids are asleep :-)
