Awesome set up !!
I'm sure it's secure(?), but the angle of that laptop hanging over the edge of the shelf is making me nervous!
I've no idea if it's any good or not as I'm a bedroom plink, plonk, twanger but it sounds good and does me.
Bugera V5 infinitum, Boss ME-80 oh, and a few guitars.
How do you like the Champion? Thinking about getting one for home practice...
@puddin man, that cab
@Beachbum man, that tele
Looks like Quo’s rig before they went with the white amps and cabs...
I love both of them! I play the Champion 20 almost all of the time though because of the blackface deluxe setting and the onboard slapback delay. For a hundred bucks, I’m amazed at it.
Man, there are some serious “flickering fireplace light seen through wine glasses, round bed, mirrored ceiling” bedroom rigs in this thread.
My setup is pretty much the equivalent of sleeping in a van, down by the river. When I discovered I liked the sound of my guitar through my Peavey TKO’s Scorpion 15, I had a moment of self-honesty: “Self, how would you describe having to carry a big tall thick-walled MDF cabinet full of heavy speaker magnet and electronics?”
“Why, such an endeavor blows dead bears!”
“Quite right. Perhaps such a contrivance could be left as a more-or-less permanent fixture, whereupon one might practice through it at bedside, use it as a nightstand, and so forth.”
“That’s a blindingly good idea. Excellent!”
If no one’s around and I want to blast, I crank that thing up and get my Link Wray on. Big loud clean(ish) twang. If I want to play quieter or be more tonally adventurous, I plug a Zoom B2 into the power amp in jack, or a Joyo British Sound into the FX return jack.
Either of those approaches lets me get crunchier at soft levels. The coolness of playing guitar through the old Peavey is pretty volume-dependent.
Tele -> Pedals -> Focusrite Scarlett Solo -> Bias FX2 (Ableton Live for recording) -> Headphones. I also have Vox AC10 for when wifey is not around.
Was a bedroom at one point, now a little studio room. I have my ultimate setup since I don’t want anything else. Main components are a kemper, a pedal pallette before the kemper and another one in the effect loop so I can bring in whatever pedals I want and have options to mix them in and set parallel or in series. Allen and heath qu32 mixer. I have a radial extc off an output for more effects if I want and a strymon big sky and timeline off other outs for more effects on everything. Sends to a large pa with an 18” sub and other sends to studio monitors. Most of the time I don’t want to be loud enough to use the pa so I use the studio monitors and they are plenty loud sitting near them. They are also dead silent while the pa speakers have a little noise. I also got a cheap pod x3 pro for a 2nd guitar professor and I finally got around to messing with it and found some pretty awesome profiles. For what I paid that thing is a bargain. It’s not a kemper but it is capable of some great sounds. Really the keys to this setup are a kemper and decent studio monitors. That’s all you need for an awesome array of guitar sounds. The big mixer and pedal utility stuff is extra fluff and I only use a few pedals most of the time.
I haven't played guitar in my bedroom since I was a teenager.
This is what I'm using today. Katana 50 on 0.5W is perfect.
Home custom built 5F1 Champ with an Orange Kongpressor-Wampler Tumnus-Wampler Ethereal-Boss RC3.
Gibson Memphis ES Les Paul and a Fender AO 50’s Telecaster.
My bedroom gig :
- amp laney cub 12 - 15W/0.1w guess which one I plug in...
- swapped the stock speaker with a Jensen P12R (93.7db sensitivity)
- a few pedals for dirt
Happy camper : the key if you want to use a tube amp is very low wattage (or an attenuator) and a low sensitivity speaker. But I live in a new appartment, so I don't think the neighbours have too much to complain about (quite good phonic isolation). That and I play mostly clean/light crunch.
Modeler/powered speaker is great at low volumes but i've been eyeing a Laney Cub on my local CLIST.
I don't know about the "Ultimate" bedroom rig, but it is mine and it works for me
The Mustang III is getting old in the tooth and I am looking for a replacement.
I also have the Spark which I find I use more often now anyway.
I use a Line 6 Wireless system so I can wander
My bedroom rig is kind of cheating... I use the flat channel on the THR10C to monitor my HX stomp/pedals... so, if it’s an amp in the helix range, I get it in my bedroom...
Tweed Champ (homemade from a kit)..
Same! Minus the Bose
