    i've got the big tube amps and pedal boards, but was wondering what all your sweet 3am dont want to wake up the misses/kids/angry-guy-upstairs consist of...

    mine:
    peavey vypyr 15w - damn good amp for effects and tone differences, but something of a jack of all trades and master of none.

    roland microcube - love this amp, effects are not very adjustable but tone is great. plus it runs off double aa's for blackouts.

    oh yeah...... and my taylor w14ce when i dont wanna plug in :)

    I've got a Champion 600 in the living room, a POD in the bedroom, an acoustic, a resonator, and my Les Paul and Tele hanging about. I also really like the MicroCube, but a buddy of mine has it at the moment.

    The 5112 in my home can get loud :D

    At home, I do this for electric:
    - Vox Pathfinder 15R for low vol. cleans
    - Tech 21 Trademark 10 for extreme low vol. drive & kerrang
    - Goodsell 5W for straightforward tone (add a gaspedals carb/light reverb for more beauty)
    - I often go unplugged for licks, runs and reviewing new stuff

    For total quiet, I use a Rocktron voodu valve direct into a mixer using the Voodu's speaker sims and headphones. Mix in Program material and have a blast.

    GDEC 30 with Sennheiser wireless headphones. In close quarters, it's the
    ultimate late night rig. Dial in a nice blackface clean and it actually takes
    pedals pretty darn well too.

    My living room couch setup is a humble Dean Markley K-50 [with Celestion V10-60] with a delay in the fx loop and compressor out front.It's a surprisingly warm and versatile setup that sounds quite good at conversation volume.

    I really dig my Gries 5 - I haven't received any complaints yet. Very nice cleans, and if you decide to crank it up, you can get lovely tweedy crunch.

    Well, either that or my acoustic :)

    also forgot to add... i have a dean "amp in a box" little headphone amp... i'm not a huge fan of dean but they got that product spot on, brilliant clean tones out of my g&l strat, and the od does well with my les paul, the entire thing is easy as can be, only 3 tones and 2 volumes, run with headphones and its literally imposible to get a bad tone from it. all this from something the size of a pack of smokes. great for car trips/touring.

    The Champion 600 is a good solution.
    If you want to use one of your big amps - Ultimate Attenuator... :AOK

    I just don't play loud. I couldn't tell you how my rockstar setup sounds like at a band volume. :messedup

    I wish I had a big live room where I could hammer up the volume. :messedup

    My Twister Amps Dust Devil. The Variwatt powerscaling lets me get great distortion at really low volumes. No one complains in the house anymore.

    Pretty straight forward:

    G&L ASAT Classic into a Fulldrive 2 into a Matchless Spitfire.

    I could drop the Fulldrive but being able to add grit and control the volume works real well.

    I may add my T Rex Replica to the lineup.

    I just grab an electric and go unplugged from about 9pm on. Sometimes during the day I'll break out the Macht 12x in half-power mode but even that can get loud for home use. The only time I really plug in is to make sure I wired something up right or to mess around with my Memory Lane. (I can entertain myself for hours with that thing.)

    Got a Epiphone Valve Jr combo. There is practically no clean head room, unless you're using really low-output pickups though. The combo doesn't sound as good as the head/cab but it's about the size of a cereal box so it works for the living room or to go to a friends house to work out some songs without lugging an amp around.

    remember these? cigarette box amps. [​IMG]
