I'm talking about something small, to use while watching tv or in the bedroom, like that. I have my stage amps covered. But was wanting something to use so I am not stuck in the basement and using my tube amps all the time.
I guess it's more like going over scales, permutations, picking exercises and my covers which is mostly Iron Maiden riffs and passages.It depends on what kind of stuff you liek to play. If it's more Marshall-y rock stuff, those Microcubes are pretty cool. If you want better f/x in a more Fender Vox type thing, the Vox Mini 3 is killer! The f/x are actually pretty good. The gain-y type sounds on these, as well as most modelers sounds like it's wrapped in cellophane. But clean to mid gain they're not bad. I mean for $85.00 those Mini 3's are a steal.
Consider looking at the Blackstar HT1 (no Reverb) or HT1R. Respectable clean and gain sounds for practicing at "TV volume" via 1 watt and a 8" speaker. I was able to find a dead mint HT-1 for $125.I guess it's more like going over scales, permutations, picking exercises and my covers which is mostly Iron Maiden riffs and passages.
