    In the moment,.. hopefully.
    I have a tweed deluxe feeding two half stacks for wet dry and it sounds great but agreed
    so much to get to where I want. But it is great sounding. I have a big room to just leave it all set up.
    Today I had a Boss RCE-10 for chorus and it is nailing Full Moon Fever and Traveling Wilburys tones. Like Jeff Lynn in a box. Worth it today but some days I just plug right in to a smaller amp.

    As does a loaf of bread. Even a Rockman blows away a Katana... but you know this. We know that you know that we all know this.

    Nice rig Hogy.
    We have 3 cats, so I get you on that. I cant abide the Katana.
    Ive thought abiut the BOSS JS-10.
    Would have to try it first.
    I live close to Sweetwater, so will be going this week.
    A friend mentioned Bluguitar. Gonna look into that too.

    As my Dad used to say, “We’ll see.”.

    Absolutely.. Hogy, get some kind of cat fence, or put it in a room where you can keep em out... I’m sure your rig sounds amazing, (also considering the amps you build:))
    I know for me, it’s hard to go back once you’ve found great tone at home or live..........you can’t go back... Like my signature says, “Tone is Paramount “

    This is a perfect example of how nuts we all are. You’d never see a modeling dude go to all the trouble for tone.

    I love it!

    2/10. My bedroom rig is far more extravagant.




    JK on the rating, looks really cool. But yeah, my bedroom rig takes up 5x the space, my wife is not happy with it lol.

    May I respectfully recommend what I use for silent practicing:

    Guitar into a Line 6 HX Stomp. DT770 headphones, Laptop, link with a USB cable. Log into my YouTube channel and practice whatever I want. I have the hx editor on my laptop and can fine tune to whatever I am playing with.

    Yeah- Why not a killer Komet amp into that OX?

    For my simple headphone practice rig, I'm using a Synergy rackmount into my Two Notes CAB-M. Simple, and sounds phenomenal.

    If only you could find some hifg quality amp company that would build a practive amp that allows easy interface to computer and IRs, etc. ;)

    I use a vox pathfinder 15 and my computer with some nice monitors driven by an old hi-fi amp.. Not silent, but low volume. And as good a the vox sounds for what it is, it gets tiresome to where I go out into the den and fire up my K29

    That looks like a perfectly reasonable practice rig. Nice job!

    Get creative for a new cat tower, buy a load of old beat up cabs, 2x12, 2x10, 1x12, 1x10 and 1x8's. Remove any old speakers/wires/connectors, remove the grill cloth, with a staple gun line the insides with some car floor mats, bolt together one on top of another at odd angles and voila... one new guitarist friendly cat tower

    That little single ended amp IS a killer Komet, it just doesn't look the part yet. It's a design I've been working on for some time. It will be an upcoming Komet model soon. Still in the tweaking phase.

    But yeah, I can use any amp with this setup.

    Man I would just roll with the Suhr RL IR with all those amps you have, plug in your fav headphones and you're good to go. Katana for when your are travelling.

    Anything is better than that micro Katana.
