Just headphones with the guitar....

Just moved in with som friends in a small house. They don't like my playing. I have to buy something to use in stead of an amp. Is the POD or V-amp possible to use with headphones? Any other things?

Thanks

Yep, any of the POD or Vamp type things are great with headphones. My recommendation for best quality would have to be the PODxt.

What about a Rockman?
Anyone remember those?

You either need to practice a lot more, or get some new friends.

I'm about to do the same, but thankfully one of the other guys is justr picking up the guitar, so out of four of us, two play- we can't get completely overruled.

POD works great for headphones. That's primarily why I got a POD (well...that and 32 amp models and 16 cabinets....). I do most of my playing late in the evening after the wife and kids are in bed. If they listen really hard, they can only hear my un-amplified strings.

Another option is the Korg Pandora...pretty good sounds and has some fun rhythm tracks to jam with. Very portable.

Yeah, I managed to squeeze some pretty good tones out of the first version (PXR-1). Surprisingly, I can't make PODxt sound as good _through the headphones_.

I use a Zoom 9002 and it sounds great through headphones. I know they're a little old, but a lot of the guys that have them swear by them for headphone playing. You can get them used for great prices on various auction sites.

PS- I also use it to hook into my computer (using the headphone outs) for recording, and it gives a nice sound through the stereo speakers. I love my Zoom!

I do, I do. It actually sounded great. I think it had a belt clip. They aren't/weren't the most durable units ever made, though. You can still get them.

I still have mine. It's probably the one piece of gear I'll never sell. I prefer the chorus off setting.

(Unless someone wants to trade for a Pandora. )

I've had a Rockman. It died, so now I only have a Sustainer. Great for stacked harmonies.

I still have my 9002. Personally, I don't think it measures up to any of the new ones - Zoom's PS-02, Korg's Pandora, etc.

None of these little guys match the full size modelers, IMO. my DG Stomp and V-Amp cream those things. Still, nothing beats hangin' out in the park with a little headphone amp AND being able to record it!
