i am looking to get a mini practice amp, i think a vox or a smokey. i would prefer to get something i could plug into a wall outlet. my question is can i hook up a stomp box to one of these? i have a rc-2 loop station and want to use it with a mini amp for practice at night. can this be done? thanks

yes
if it has a 1/4 inch jack you can run stompboxes into it

Yeah, but I would buy the amp with the most watts. Cause if you want to start adding more pedals to your chain, well, it will screw up your tone. Trust me, I know. I have a 15 watt practice amp that I run my 6 pedals into and only 3 of them are true bypass. So, the answer to your question is yes and my advice is always buy more watts.

The problem with the RC2 in small amps is that you want to place it after the pre amp. Since most small amps do not have an effects loop youre going to have to either; use distortion that isnt on the amp (distortion pedal, multieffects unit) or only play the amp clean (lameeeeeeeee)

I'd suggest just getting a small practice amp with a nice clean tone and then getting a line 6 pod or something. You can get them pretty cheap used. So your set up would be:

Guitar>Pod>RC2>Amp

I've been running my practice rig like this for many years and i have to say i love it.

Epiphone Valve Junior or Vox AC4TV (switches down to a quarter of a watt, so it's crankable at room volume, I guess) would make an excellent practice amp.

Youy can't use pedals with those things, well you can , they'll just sound crap. Those tiny amps are really just designed to make noise, that's all they do - there's no point worryjng about the quality of the sound they make due to the cheap construction and tiny speaker...no matter what you put before it all you'll get is boxy farts.

i'd just get a pod and headphones or something if youve already got a blues jr for daytime practice

The Vox amPlug headphone amp is awesome. But you can't really use a looper with a amp that has it's own distortion and FX. You need the amp to be clean and the FX have to go in front of the looper.

the Vox amPlugs are great. They are little and produce great sound. And they fit anywhere and you can take em on the run.

Try out a v-amp2, you can plug in some decent headphones in and it's reletively cheap, it'd be alot better than mini amps of the price range you mentioned.
