even possible to use at bedroom levels? , seeing all of them ive seen is 120W full tube, that seems a bit overkill since my 5 w blackheart is pretty loud imo,

it depends what you mean by "bedroom" levels. my idea of "bedroom levels" is loud enough that you can't hear your voice over it if you yell, but not so loud that its knocking stuff off your shelves. If you can turn it up loud enough that you can get the speaker moving a little, it should sound ok. But if you're playing it at 0.5 or something, its probably going to sound fizzy or muddy.

Its possible but if you're only going to use it in the bedroom then its a waste of wattage.

it wont be only in bedroom, but mostly . My idea of bedroom levels is the level you listen to music and its kinda hard to hear what people say if they use normal voice.

That'll work but i think you'll enjoy it more if you move it out to the garage, it's hard to sit next to it if the volume is on 2+.

just read that a engl fireball is one of the best sounding low volums "high" watt amps,

so im probably gonna try and find one to try out, but a bugera is half the price and that would be better for my wallet :P

Yes, some reverb but i dont mind it. Depends on what's in there to absorb/reflect the sound.

Yes, it can most definitely achieve that low of volume, as will any amp. Someone who says, "such and such amp is too loud for the bedroom," is an idiot. There's a reason the amp has a volume knob.

Sure, it might not sound as good as it would turned up a little bit louder, but it's not going to be horrible sounding like 90% of UG seems to believe.

If you're really that concerned about the wattage, you can pull the inner or outer power tubes and reduce the wattage by a half.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

It is entirely possible as I have been playing in my bedroom all week with it. I just added and EQ pedal into the FX loop for that little added oomph, but it does quiet nicely for me. Unless you are tuning to B or something, because I found that doesn't sound quite as good low level wise. Great for standard though as I practise along to the tunes on my computer for jamming purposes.

If you are used to playing a 5w Blackheart, prepare to get your ears blown to pieces. Think about the fact that most live bands play their amps at full on approximately 50-100 watts. (given the PA systems do contribute) but I knock over pictures with my Rockerverb 50 at volume 6 so you will need to keep it low to practice, or buy an attenuator.

I use my freaking 333XL halfstack in my bedroom whenever it doesn't need to be in whatever practice space we happen to be in. It sounds alright at low volume, but of course it sounds better when turned up just a bit.

It's not worth it to pull power tubes on a 120 watt amp, anyway, as far as I'm concerned, it's not going to affect the volume barely at all. It'll just lower the point on the knob where you need to get to in order to get natural breakup. But, that's still gonna be way over bedroom volume, even with two tubes pulled.

me, when I'm playing in rehearsals. Gets a better sound and we all have the headrom in my band to do it. If I practice, I play acoustic.
