First: 40 watt Holmes practice amp. Sounded great until the speaker started to crackle and I eventually gave it to Goodwill during a long lapse in playing.
Last: Blackstar HT-1R

Peavey Bandit back in the late 80's, not bad in hindsight, wish I still had it.
Currently playing through a Bugera V22 and am very happy with it although the overdrive is a bit fizzy, the clean is amazing though. I run pedals through the clean.

The first amp that I purchased was a Gulid Thunderbass head. I used it for guitar. It had a master volume, which was rare back then. I used it with an old 4x12 Vox cab.
The last amp I bought was my second Goodsell Super17 MkII. The first one was a head, the last one is 1x12 combo in tweed covering with Reverb & tremolo back when it was new, approx '08. I really haven't needed to look at amps after I got my Goodsells.

My first amp was in my Sears Silvertone guitar case. My first 'proper amp' was an Ampeg Gemini I in the mid 60s. My last amp was the Kemper Profiling amp.

Well the first one I bought (as opposed to receiving as a gift) was my '69 Kustom 100, which I still have. Most recent purchased is a Crate B150 bass head I bought to flip, but will have to do some work on before reselling.
Both can be seen in this pic:

First amp when my parents were footing the bill - Gorilla 10 watt practice amp
First amp with my own money - Fender Pro Junior
Last amp I bought - Traded a guitar for a Peavey Mini Collosal JSX. Recently replaced the preamp tube in it to a 5963 (close to a 12AU7in sound) tube to give the amp a lot more headroom.
The only amp I regret parting with is the Fender Pro Junior. In fact, I'd say that is the only piece of music equipment I sold or traded that I wish I still had. The Peavey isn't a bad small tube amp, but the Fender was better.
