    The amp in that article provides a new definition of bedroom amp: an amp you can sleep in!

    I like the Blues Cube Hot variants, smaller Roland JCs (22 and 40), and Blackstar HT-1 heads into 1×12s for home use. Oh, and Yamaha THRs (including the 100HD), of course.

    Works great! Marshall MS1 with external 10” speaker Ragin Cajun. Wow!
    Even Vox Amplug can be connected to external cab...
    Pro Jr, SCX2, Micro Terror or Vox MV50 are my other options, of course on low volumes.
    Not to forget my Marshall Studio 15 with spk on 1w mode.

    Back on subject...I'm inclined to vote for a Fender Superchamp XD. Had one and miss it. Note to self...STOP SELLING/TRADING/GIVING GEAR AWAY!

    Ironically, we when Marty actually plugs into the amp, you can see clearly that is says GA-5 T: which might be the perfect bedroom amp

    A Katana of course. Good for low or high volume!

    Not a high end or pricey amp, but for home I love my little monoprice 5 watt. I have heard mixed things on quality, but mine has no issues and takes pedals great. The attenuation switch is great for night too

    The perfect bedroom amp is a 69 Fender Champ or a 65RI Princeton Reverb. Love them both!

    Being an admirer of the Top Boost tone, my goto Bedroom amp is one of my varieties of 4-5 Watt Top Boost anps. When I was jamming last week it was my AC4C1-BL Handwired conversion.

    These put out some great tones ( although the AC4 needs C20 removed for the master volume to not function as a tone control) and if you pair them with a 1x12 speaker ( Weber Alnico Blue Dog ) they sound absolutely amazing.

    A Twin Reverb is a great bedroom amp but too heavy for gigging so I switched to a Deluxe.

    I get some pretty tasty sounds out of my Micro Terror at low volume.

    I love my tweed deluxe in my bedroom , I love the cleans at night when I need to be quiet and during they day with the amp volume on 3 and the strat on 5-7 it’s just great. My roommate has this little backstage peavey amp, I think it’s ten watts but there is something I love about the sound of that amp too. If I see one of those peaveys in the wild for $70 bucks or less I will buy it.
