I'm looking for a small practice amp and was hoping for some suggestions.

I have small children and mostly play when they are in bed so I'm looking for something that sounds good at low volumes.

Effects aren't a necessity as I have a bunch of pedals I can use with it, just something with decent clean tones and maybe a nice crunch/distortion for classic rock sounds.

Thanks guys!!!

You may wanna look into something you can use with headphones.

Fancy a Pod HD500x?

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

I have a Pod HD300 which I use from time to time but it's not really my thing.

Yep a POD HD would be great for what you want. lots of good amp/cab/FX modeling

Even the older POD XT/X3 would work just fine. I have a POD XT that sounds just fine to me and I paid all of $65 for it on Ebay

Roland Cube.You can use the power squeezer when neccesary to make your output only 2 watts.

If your OK with a small SS amp, Vox Pathfinder would work great and it is cheap.

What about getting a cab and using your VHT?

Try a Blackstar HT-5C or HT-5R.


Blackstar pretty good for your money. Built small but sound better than most.
On playing the Paul Gilbert signature at the guitar store extensively, my missus sighed:
"Put it down now, It's like you love that guitar more than me!"
In Which I replied.
"Well it has got two F-Holes!"

Was thinking about getting a cab for the VHT but it's still pretty loud.

I use an Orange 35LDX for practice and it does what I need it to. Not a bad buy for the price

If you have an iPhone/iPod Touch, give the JamUp Pro app a go. It's not an amp per se, but you won't disturb anyone using it and you can get some cool tones.
