Your Practice Gear
 
What gear do you use for practice,not your main rig,but for late night jamming,or sitting in front of the computer,whatever?

I got a Roland Microcube that sits on my desktop. With my EMG loaded guitars, it can get quite heavy on the recto setting. So small and nice to play along with powertab stuff by my computer.

xdislexicx 2006-01-27 02:16

either one of my halfstacks turned way down... or if im in my bedroom, a little vox pacemaker with a boss m3tulz0n3.

Fender 30 Watt Combo...since my main rig is in my bandīs prac. room.

brainsforbreakfast 2006-01-27 06:03

Marshall mastel lead 30 watt combo + GT-6.

Incindentaly, this also happends to be my main rig for the moment...

i try to use my half stack but when the master is on zero the preamp still amplifys sound. its really not loud at all but my dad sais it wakes him up sometimes.

HalfmastTrousers 2006-01-27 10:58

when my rig's at home, i just use the rack and i'm cool.


Right now I just play everything unplugged. Not so bad, plus it forces you to do something interesting rather than DUN...DUN DUN DUN...WEEEEEEEEEE and get nothing accomplished...which is what i end up doing if my halfstack's at home.

Main rig is my practice rig except for my axe. I practice with my strat, but amp and effects are all the same.

Slabbefusk 2006-01-27 12:13

For the moment my regular amp but I'm getting a Pod XT which should be suitable for lots of stuff including late night practice.

IRON90 2006-01-27 16:37

Well my ibanez tone blaster stands by my computer, but when i practise very late i usually unplug my guitar. Otherwise, i use muy fender amp with a metal zone, boss eq, boss chorus and a dunlop wahwah. That's also my main setup.

Mordor 2006-01-27 17:27

i either use my acoustic or i plug into my dsl but have the volume way way down

Soeru 2006-01-27 17:44

My main rig = my practice rig:

Jackson Kelly or BCR NJ Ironbird(with Tone Zone) into my Tech 21 Trademark 30. Sweet ass solid state 30W combo(but has a 50W speaker, and gets unbelievably loud with the volume not even on 1), I owe it to xdislexicx for reccomending it. It's a bit more pricey than a Roland Cube 30, but I decided to get it anyway. I can't use it at night... it's too loud, the volume knob is extremely sensitive.

For late practice I either use headphones... or I take my Zoom G2 and plug it into my computer and play through the speakers, sounds nice and the volume is way more controllable than on my amp. A shame the distortions on it aren't very good(cept for a few models that don't sound too fake), but all the other effects on it sound decent so for practice it's acceptable).

I use my peavey 80 watt bandit through a metalzone.

Hah cool. I saw a Bv-60 on eBay going for cheap but then realized it was 5 days away from the ending date, and another BV-60 was already going for 300$+ so bleh, I won't be jumping for one like I thought I would. How much did you buy yours for? Used/new?
