Hi, JJ here needs your advice... I play guitar at home only and am looking for a nice, good sounding amp to use in my study room. It shouldn't be too loud with the wife and my newborn baby girl and all, you get the idea ;-) I play classic and modern rock, blues, alternative, etc. and play Strat, Tele and LP. I have owned a Fender G-DEC3 Thirty that I sold because of its complexity. My next amp should be easy to use. Also, I found it was not very pedal friendly. Used to have the G-DEC on the Tweed Drive setting with no reverb or compression going on, letting my pedals take care of the rest. By the way, I use a Bad Monkey, Boss FZ5 Fuzz and an iStomp running delay or tremolo depending on my mood/needs. Nice and simple. Before the G-DEC I had a Vibro Champ XD that I absolutely loved, but it was too loud to play at home and had no headphone out and aux in. I like jamming to my Spotify playlists n my iPhone. I also own a Vox DA5 that I'm keeping for sentimental reasons, and a Vox Amplug for late night jamming. Right now I'm thinkng of buying a new amp, but I'm not sure whether to go for a low wattage valve amp or another solid state/modelling combo? I think that latter would be quite convenient for a guy like me, but I have found a lot of these amps sounded a little uninspiring. I'm looking to spend no more than $ 400. So in short, looking for: Low wattage valve amp or SS/modelling Should sound great at low volume Ease of use, love knobbies Pedalfriendly Inspiring tone Please help!
