I'm in the market for a practice amp but - and here's the thing - it has
to sound *great* at low volume. By low I mean (say) the average volume you
might watch TV. This is because I don't want to annoy my flatmates and
also, more importantly, because I don't much like being heard when I play.
I've been doing some research and I love the sound of the Fender 65 Deluxe
Reverb but I'm guessing a 22watt would need to be at volume to really come
into its own.
I play mainly soft rock/indie type rhythm and would want something that
gives resonant cleans and light distortion. Any suggestions?
You didn't say small, so you could go with the amp of your choice and use an
attenuator, for example:
Or go for an amp with a good clean channel and add pedals to get the FX.
This is basically what I have at home. - An H&K Dual EL84 Statesman, with a
Toneworks AX3G in front of it. The Toneworks is cheap and nasty in many
ways, but it produces the few sounds I want very well. Again, if size or
cost doesn't matter then the choice of suitable amps to use clean at low
volume with pedals in front must be enormous, eg the amp you have suggested.
