Fantastic gear pics here! drool

I'm less creative than you guys toliet
Guitar (My Kramer, Stratocaster or Les Paul) ->Sound Interface -> various Digital Softwares. :whistle

Always because I need to be a little bit quiet and because it's even more cheap than valve amps (but damn, they've unique sound).

I think you should get one of those nice little 1W tube amps, but something with serious distortion like Marshall DSL1 or my Randall RD-1. They have the real heavy tube tone even at "whisper" volume, FX.loop for delay and such and they're also great for recording.

Thanks for advices xxx! I'll check them out :D I've seen various of those amps you mentioned in stores. I'll try them :toast

I was really really interested into the Marshall Class 5 Head, but it seems nobody sells it :bang I love that Bluesbraker sound!

DSL5 or DSL1 is the thing if you like Marshall, very versatile and also good for rock or blues, not just metal. I actually prefer the Randall for its extreme metal tone, it can't do anything "softer" really. There are also some other brands with 1-5W out there but I haven't tried them yet. Do NOT try Blackstar HT-metal, it's more of a transistor amp under the hood and the tone sucks.

And this for when needing effects. Mostly though I just run a Carbon copy delay in the effects loop for the most part.

Recently, my setup has changed to an Atomic Amplifire instead of the Eleven Rack.

I definitely recommend the Marshall DSL lineup as some have mentioned. Last year I picked up the DSL40C with the celestion creamback from Sweetwater, it's an awesome combo amp. It even sounds great at bedroom volume. Very versatile amp.

Agreed, the 40C is a great combo, well capable of handling small to large gigs with ease, typical Marshall tone, takes pedals well (both in front & in the loop)!

I've been trying to find a reason to buy one & get rid of my 5150iii but can't :roll
