Most woodworkers I know have many different clamps in many different styles, including me. I accumulated them over many decades. I buy clamps as I need them, and get by using the "wrong" clamp because it is good enough and does the job I need.
I don't like C clamps, especially not for woodworking, although I use them when I have to. Sometimes "have to" means "ran out of the other clamps that I prefer."
Another thing to keep in mind is that you do not need a lot of clamping pressure for most glue-ups. According to Titebond, you need only 5 pounds (PSI?) of clamping pressure for their wood glues. The clamp keeps the pieces in place and ensures a uniform thin layer of glue in the joint. Some people clamp so hard they starve the joint of glue and make it weaker than it should be.
Most of the time, those cheap one-handed ratchet clamps work best for me. They are easy to position and clamp with one hand. When I am clamping work to the table, I use the Besseys. That's when clamping power is useful.
