I'll need to travel for work and want to practice in the hotel room. I figure I'll bring one of my guitars but what "amp"? I'll just play through headphones and it will need to be something exceptionally portable. It needs to sound good enough to be inspiring but doesn't need to be great in terms of tone. Playing to backing tracks might be nice too. What are some options?
Guitars
- Ibanez S570DXQM

- Fender John Mayer Strat
- Fender MIJ Strat
- Epiphone Bonamassa LP

- Tweed Blues Jr. NOS

Hm. Interesting. I actually remembered that I have a Line 6 Pocket Pod. Somewhere. I think. I suppose that could work and fit in a gig bag. I'd guess there are similar things around these days that are better. I read a comment about Bias for iPad. Maybe something like that? I'll look into it.

Thanks. I'm looking into Positive Grid's JamUp app seems about right. I have an iPad mini so that could work.

Try a portable digital modeler. Line 6 PODs, Korg Px4/Px5/Pandora series, Boss Micro series, Tascam GT-R1, etc.- all good options.

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

It is very impotent to success a business.

Thanks guys. I will try to find my Pocket Pod. I also went ahead and grabbed the BIAS FX app for iPad and a few of the add on packs. Seemed decent for about $30. I'll have to get one of the iRig things or similar.
