Need a good Home/Headphone amp GP/DI? Other suggestion?


Do to a change in my living situation for the next 2 years Im going to need a good practice amp preferably with a headphone jack. I have a black star 1 watter but it sounds like hell. GP/DI looks really good. Anybody have any experience with it for headphone and low volume use. Right now I'm playing a BE100. My other thought was to use a load box and go digital with that but I'd like to keep things simple.


Not sure about your price range, but the new Carr Mercury V will have the Skylark's amazing attenuator, as well as a recording line out. I believe it'll be released at the coming NAMM show. Here's their description of the amp I borrowed from another thread.

"This new version of the much loved Mercury comes with a highly evolved feature set borrowing the best of the past while rocketing into the future. The Mercury V is highly touch sensitive with a huge range of tones from 60s aggressive clean through 70s rock into 80s and 90s tasty crunch.

Carr's built in attenuator delivers real power tube overdrive at whisper levels retaining the feel and juice of full volume fun. Like recording on your computer? Just plug the Mercury V line out into your A/D interface and go! The Luscious Spring Reverb, full ranging Overdrive options, and effective tone controls make the Mercury V an invaluable recording tool. Home player? Experience big amp satisfaction with domestic tranquility. Gigging musician? 16 burley watts in full power means the Mercury V is a commanding stage amp. Mercury V wins the six string triathlon: Home, Studio, and Stage! Plus, you get everything Carr is known for. In-house crafted solid pine dovetailed cabinets, bleeding edge power supply components mixed with Mid-Century signal elements, and true point to point hand wiring."
