Everytime I do a search here for bedrooom volume amp recommendations, the same recs always come up: Fender Mustangs, Roland Cube, Line 6 stuff. All items that have some sort of modeling built in.
I take it that means most people dont use pedals along with their bedroom level amps? (by bedroom level i mean TV volume level). ...Do I scrap my whole amp/pedal board set up? What would you do? ... I often play to whole song backing tracks (using a boss looper) and therefore like the ability of using a pedal board to quickly switch tones during a song.
The same amps keep getting mentioned because these amps have been found to produce acceptable sound quality at bedroom levels.
As to the menus and built-in effects, just because you've got 'em doesn't mean you have to use 'em. You are perfectly free to use the amp just as an amp, and use your own pedals in front of it.
And if the question is raised, "well, why should I pay for built-in effects if I don't want to use them?", that's a question jazz players have been asking for years. The answer is, because those are the amps that the manufacturers have decided to offer for sale. They're not going to market inexpensive niche amps that will sell in the dozens when they can market the amps that sell in the thousands.
