I'm looking for a new practice amp with aux/cd in and a headphone jack as well. What would you guys suggest? I'm not looking for something loud as I will be using headphones with it 100% of the time. I want something with the best tone that I can get size doesn't matter. I'm not interested in something with volume.

I've been looking at the Hotone nano legacy series. May be something your interested in. They sound pretty good on YouTube.

If you're using headphones 100% of the time, why bother with an amp? Get yourself some kind of digital modeling device or MFX pedal with a headphone jack- Line 6 POD, Korg Pandora, Boss Micro, Atomic Amps Amplifire, etc.

This.

If you're going to be using the amp with headphones the vast majority of the time, then imo a practice amp is the wrong approach to have. You get a lot better quality tones with VST software at that budget.

I agree with the others here. I prefer amp sims on the computer myself for this use case.

Thx for the advice. Ordered a Line 6 Helix and a new guitar. Damn you Cyber Monday.

Damn! That's a huge step up from wanting a practice amp haha.

The Helix is one of the best guitar processors out right now. Enjoy it. But I do recommend getting a good pair of monitors to run it through. Headphones can only do so much.

Amplifiers amplify so if you are a headphone-only guy, avoiding an amp completely is wise. irig or other interface and a compatible phone and you are golden.
Edit: Or you could GO BIG and get the Helix

Yamaha THR10 is absolutely awesome.


The THR is a great little amp. I bought a THR 10 when they first came out. From clean to distorted tones this amp fits the bill. It also takes pedals extremely well. I have the first generation and when I get the cash will add the THR10X to the collection.
