With my starter pack Ibanez amp I linked my Xbox 360's sound to the CD input. I then put in Guitar Hero and adjusted it where you could only hear the guitar. It sounded awesome. It sounded almost like I was playing real guitar on it. Anyways, I thought it was a cool way to put my old amp to use. Does anybody have any suggestions on other stuff to do with old amps?

Keep them for when your new one breaks, use as PC Speakers, play music through them basically anything that might want a speaker.

1. Unscrew back cover
2. Insert fire works
3. ????
4. Profit.

edit: Oh wait I thought you had a fender frontman 15G like the vast majority of guitar players.

combine it with some form of headwear, then you can have an "amp-hat"
you can rock out on the go and look stylish at the same time

profit!

but i use my old ibanez starter (along with another one my friend gave me for 5 bucks) as the left and right speakers to a makeshift "stereo system" hooked up to my turntable. it sucks cause some of the guitar frequencies (oddly enough) aren't as audible, but it's better than NO speakers, y'know?

Haha I'm trying to figure a way to use an effect pedal to effect the cd input's sound so I could add wah or whammy to the sound coming from amp from the game. No luck

Nah, I'd rather have one of those mini battery powered amps, put it on my board, and cruise around in style.

My one friend converted his amp to a solar powered amp.

Pretty cool, as you can play anywhere, without being plugged in o-O

You just need the right adapters. I've got a bunch of 3.5mm - 1/4in ones about the house that would do the trick.
But they're mine, and I need them to prepare for zombies.

Paint them with satanic imagery, then advertise them as "Tr00 lo-fi amps, the number one choice for black metal bands", and sell them at double the original price.

Alternatively, do what one of my schoolmates did, collect old practice amps and stack them in an artsy way to may an abstract art wall of sound.

Or something like that

Take the back cover off it and use it as a portable sink.

Or even better, turn it into a br00tal guitar by getting huge elastic bands and putting over the edges. 100% epic win right there.
