Re: The age old question... bedroom amps?

Thank you, a balanced opinion was all I was after. Yeah it can be loud, but it sounds exactly the same between 0 and 1 (which is very quiet) as it does between 5 and 6. One man's rubbish is another man's treasure, theyre not universally bad amps. It's not the one for him though, so there's no point in discussing it further.

Sorry if I came across a little strong too... I shouldn't use forums after nights out!

hey... no problem.... as you say.. its all down to the individual..
I dislike the bandit ... twice

nights out in Cardiff can be pretty cool...
I work there sometimes and stay at the "future inn" hotel... close to that there is a large complex with lots of bars and stuff ---- glug glug glug - love it....
helps that the taffs are all barking mad of course - good times

I'm with you on the £1000 Mesa - it's just too much £ for a home amp ...

Are there any decent small Marshall's

Yeah the Lionheart. Basically, I couldn't get rid of the mids on it. There was just no chance of getting a sparkly tone

I've gone through loads of Marshall practice amps and I've decided they're nice on clean, but when you pop some gain on it always turns the tone fizzy (or at least, too fizzy for my liking.)

One of my biggest regrets in life was getting rid of this old amp I had, I think it was a WEM, and I had an Ibanez SM9 pedal. Awesome setup but I got rid of it as a kid because I wanted a Marshall just like Slash (HOW STUPID?!?) that's being a kid for you though I guess

Here's a picture of the SM9 if ever you're lucky enough to come by one:

Thumbs up Re: The age old question... bedroom amps?

The Peavey JSX combo is the best out there right now IMHO! it is a bit pricey but you can do anything from bedroom practice to big club gigs with it!!!

Re: The age old question... bedroom amps?

You should try a small bass amp with a high boost, I think they're great for bedroom practising.

Re: The age old question... bedroom amps?

peavey transtube range are pretty good
the gain sound very natural, but its proabably have just enuf gain for that smooth sound, add a pedal and u can drive it pretty well for a lead sound

the cleans are clean, nothing special,

otherwise H&K blue edition15 is very good
