Hotone Purple Wind or E-Wave DG-5 for quiet. Laney Cub 10 for not so quiet.
Wangs 1W amp. Killer little $150 3 tube amp, excellent build quality, sounds great. I run it through a 2x12.
My Fender custom Vibrolux.
How loud does it get?
It's reasonably loud with the gain up but not "loud" - my THR5 is probably louder, I doubt you'd get complaints from the neighbors with it "cranked" - and with it just on the edge of breakup it's perfect for getting decent volume but not getting the wife mad. On clean it can get pretty quiet if you don't wanna wake up the baby. You can definitely push it louder with pedals and a big cab. There's a couple nice demo videos you can check out on utube. I've been using it for my late night sessions and it's perfect, I have NOS tubes in it and the tone is warm and beautiful and rich in harmonics, the notes just bloom out with a good OD.
That's an international standard
Tweed princeton based amp with a 12" speaker. It's my smallest amp. I don't crank it, obviously, but I have no trouble using it quietly.
A 1952 Magnatone
Highly modded first series Epi VJ, clean plus pedals. It really needs a better speaker.
1. Unplugged, if I'm just noodling or trying to figure something out, or give my fingers a workout.
2. Blackstar HT-1R, if I'm not recording anything but need to hear something amplified.
3. Amplitube, usually with an Orange AD30 model, if I need to record something quietly.
Vox AC10 through a 2x10 ABYd with a Suhr Corso thru a 1x12, both with attenuators in front of the cabs to tamp the levels down while still working the power tubes. For louder play I simply deattenuate; bigger tone but roughly the same response to pick and finger dynamics, so practice translates better to performance.
One of these...
I have a couple of amps I use for home. It depends on the mood I'm in and the tone I'm trying to achieve. So I use a Vox AC4TV, Vox Night Train 15w, Gretch Electromatic G5222. But I do admit I sometimes plug in my Twin reverb
Marshall Class 5 head into an Avatar 1 x 12 (turned down with a pedal board) or an old Champ or a Champion 600.
With a Roland Micro Cube or this...
Guitar >> iMac >> Garageband >> Headphones
All Amps and Pedals that i need for practicing.
If I want to play quiet or making some music, it would be through my Boss GT6 which has a headphones output or through my audio interface along whatever I made on my DAW.
If I want to rock on loud, my GT6 goes into the power amp of my Peavey Bandit 112red stripe on the band room.
