I was looking at the Blackheart little giant and the Palomino series, are there any other great little amps?

I'm really looking for a good rock tone(acdc, led zep, queen) and good cleans as well.

i don't really have a choice other than low watt amps.

Orange Tiny Terror (its kinda pricey though). The palomino series is pretty nice as well, but i think the Tiny Terror sounds the best.

i was really looking at the tiny terror, but i hear it's actually pretty loud. what are some low watt but quality cabs i could put it through that wouldn't get me complaints from people in nearby rooms?

still, any other low watt amps?

The Palomino V8 would get the job done. Along with your Pod XT Live, you can get the tones you're looking for.
Agile AL-3000 Cherry Sunburst
Fender American Strat HSS
1981 Yamaha FG-335II
Crate V1512 (USA made)
Fender Frontman 15R
Dunlop Crybaby Slash Wah

Yeah if you want to spend more there are some higher end low wattage amps.

Just some other options for you include
-Peavey Valveking Royal 8
-Carvin Vintage 16/5 (It has 16w and 5w output modes)
-Smaller Fenders (Champ 600, Super Champ XD, etc)

The Orange Tiny Terror is NOT a bedroom practise amp.

I'd consider the Blackheart or the Epiphone Valve Jr. myself. I have the Valve Jr and it sounds fantastic when cranked, but I've also heard great things about the Blackheart. Give them a play and see which you like the sound of better.

The Tiny Terror can quite easily be used as a bedroom practice amp, with it's 7W/15W attenuator. It may be a bit louder than a Blackheart or a VJ, but it also gives you the potential for practicing with drums, maybe even small gigs. It also has the upside of blowing the Blackheart, VJ, and Palomino out of the water, tonally.

I own a TT and it CAN get loud but it can also play very quiet (which is awesome). I would hook it up to an Avatar 1x12 cabinet (great value and quality cabinets). Search for avatar speakers on google to find their site.

Ok buddy well, mine is sitting right next to me in my bedroom and my parents aren't pissed off so that tells me that it IS a bedroom amp.

Even the Valve Jr. is a little too loud for everyday bedroom practise when cranked I find. My neighbours complain a lot.

Pretty much any amp, other than a 5-15 watt solid state, will piss off your neighbors if you crank it.

Yeah but you NEED to crank a VJ for good tones and overdrive, you have a gain control on the TT.

I would say that 5 watters are still VERY loud, and the TT is VERY loud, they're really good amps though.
Maybe a blackheart/EVJ with an OD? The Blackheart starts overdriving about noon which really is a little loud for 'bedroom volumes'.

Ok fair call, yeah.

You NEED to crank a VJ for good overdrive; however, I find that the cleans are quite nice, even when I keep it below 9 o'clock. (uber-quiet)
