Just wondering what everyone plays as their bedroom or practice amp.

Just got a Vox DA5 that I have to wait until Xmas to fiddle with :/

I never have ever practiced in 25 years on my electric using an amp. I've always just played it acoustically. That could explain why I never sound as good as I thought I was when I practice because I don't really "hear" what it is actually going to sound like when it comes out of the amp (finger noise, inarticulate picking, etc).

I don't recommend it, just what I've done.

Vox DA5 or Vox AD100VT, depending on what room I'm in.  Usually the AD100VT because of the footswitch.

I just got a tiny 10W Marshall for an early Christmas present.
It fits nicely under my home office desk with my Digitech Rp7, ready to go.

Any recommendations on the most quiet yet good sounding amp?

I have one of those 1-watt plastic marshall toys and I'm sick of it, but I'd get thrown out if I had something loud (I keep my 30W home stereo down below 1 on the dial).

I love my Vox AD5.  The little thing gets surprisingly loud, but it sounds good turned down too.

Effects processors plugged into a stereo.

Sometimes it's a sweet tube stereo amp and sometimes it's plugged into my car amp which makes for some amazing feedback.........and I can go wherever I want.

What's really fun is plugging in a midi sound module and using a small midi keyboard to make live sounds or play and manipulate samples while in traffic.

I've got a little Marshall MG15CDR.

It gets the job done at a low volume. Lately, I've been just playing my SansAmp into my computer.

I have a little Traveler guitar that I play when I'm on the road.

I miss the days when I lived out in the country and could play my big amp.

My Soldano just sits there, lookin' at me all pitiful.

I play unplugged electric to practice almost exclusively.

My gig rig is a Marshall Silver Jubilee full stack so no so sweet for quiet noodling.

If I plug in to practice its a '66 Fender Princeton with a Marshally distortion pedal for gain (I bounce between a Carl Martin Plexitone, Tone Bone PlexiDrive or MI Audio Crunch Box)

My practice amp of choice is my Peavey Rage but the input is loose and it crackles like crazy.
