    Today i received 2 new amps.

    As i play mostly at home and i am living in a apartment i used to have problems cranking my Orange Thunder 30 amp so i kept the orange for gigs + Orange cabs and i decided to go micro amp way plus tiny cab

    So...I bought a VOX V110 Cab (Cab of the lil night train amp) and changed the 10' crappy speaker with a Celestion G10 Vintage 60W.

    Ordered a rock block 1W amp plus a Zvex Nano 0.5W amp head and finally a EHX Caliber 22 power amp to run my POD HD desktop though the vox cab if i need high gain sound.

    Here is a pic. Amazing sound and saturation in bedroom volume.

    That's sweet !

    I use Rockblock as a pedal ,
    So I can get pre and power tube distortions both .

    You can try it with the SS pedal amp you own .

    Cheers !

    No way :(

    Best way for ultra low sounds are getting pre and power tube distortions and get them out from a SS amp .

    For me , the best is ToneGod's Tubeulent to a JC120 and a whispering sound of huge power amp distortion .

    Have you tried you rockblock into your Orange amp yet?

    I am considering picking up a rockblock, looks like a cool amp/pedal...

    BTW , as far as I can see ,
    You have a ECC 99 in your power tube position in RockBlock ,

    When ever you want to use it as a pedal , you better try 12AT7 in that position to have better power tube distortion .

    That's what I know ,
