I have a crate v50 and its good for gigs and stuff, but when practicing in my room i can't really get past 2 (plus i have to lower the volume when i raise the gain) without my parents telling me to turn it down. anyone know to make it softer so i can raise the volume but not get yelled at. because the eq doesn't make a noticeable difference when u have it that low. all u can hear is bass at approxmitly .75 volume

anyone have ideas besides buying a practice amp. maybe something like putting a pillow or blanket to soak up the echo

well an attenuator (sp?) could help, but it wont make much of a difference at such low levels.
tape a pillow to the cab/speakers and that should help a little bit.

Practice in your garage or basement if you have one. Idk what else to tell you if you don;t want to buy a small practice amp.

bahahh that would blow up the headphones

an attenuator is what you need, really. I don't get why that guy said it wouldn't work at such low volumes, an attenuator is made to make it low volume?

bad cat leash or weber mini mass imo

Attenuator!
Don't get a THD hotplate, they are hugely overpriced.

Look at a Weber Mass 100. Cheaper and better!

it doesn't have a headphone jack, i don't have money for a practice amp, much less a thd hot plate attentuator, though it looks like something to add to my wishlist. il try the pillow

they do cut down on noise, but not by that much, right?

What they do is let you get the tone you would have at high volumes at low "practice" volumes. And in the case of the TS it would not sound like bass.


How much are you even willing to spend to solve your issue?

Also a nice OD pedal is always good.

To emulate those sounds at a lower volume and shape the sound, cheaper to.

well i don't have job and just spent what i had already saved up so i am sorry that i can't spent 300 dollars. if i had 300 dollars i would just go and buy a practice amp. im am looking for just a quick easy simple thing to soften it a little bit, not to spend more money i spent on the amp to lower the volume

A pillow will work, or a blanket in front of the speaker would work too.

My MXR M108 equalizer helps with sound control - I turn the GAIN and VOLUME sliders to -12 and bam, about as loud as an average television. It's also very useful for shaping your tone.
