    Laney Cub 10 either through it's own speaker, or if I need to be quieter than that, through an attenuator to a cab. recently got a 5 watt valve combo. Similar deal. Late night and it's headphone time.

    Peavey Valveking II at 1, 5, and almost never at 20 watts into a 1/12 speaker cab.

    I go clean plus pedals, and I use two, depending on my mood. One is a 20w-ish H&K St Dual El84, the other a 5w highly modded Epi VJ. The Epi is warmer/a bit muddier than the H&K

    Now I use my new Nace pro 18. It has a variable power control. Allows me to go from 1 watt to 18 watts or anywhere in between without effecting tone. Really nice feature and great amp. Very flexible.

    SFPR lately. I play a PF-R but pretty much only in a garage band and because it's such an easy grab & go amp. Also a Pro Jr but after fiddling a lot the past year I'm liking my SFPR. Took me time to figure it out.

    I don't play 'whisper volume' with my Tele. If I'm playing with the TV or when little ones are here I play a flattop. I play the amps not super loud at home, but they are far from quiet. About the same volume level I'd use with a couple friends in a non gigging fun deal.

    mostly a tweed champ, or a fender mustang. Sometimes a blues junior if I just wanna play squeaky clean.

    As of late, the Line 6 Amplifi 150. It is Bluetooth enabled, so I can push backing tracks or tunes from any Bluetooth enabled devices directly to it for play along or listening. It also has impressive modeling features.

    Mesa Mark V through a 2x12 Lone star cab. Run 10 watt mode and if need be I have a 10 band mxr in the loop I can leave flat but turn down the volume more to quiet it down more without loosening the preamp push. Also have a cab clone so I can go headphones if need be. Or a black star ht5 through headphones.
