what does it affect? i'll be just playing at home, a low watt amp would be sufficient right?
#2
If you're playing at home, bedroom level. I'd say 75watt solid state would be good enough and maybe 30-50tube watt would be good.
#3
30-50 watts would probably be too much for bedroom use. Really you'll only need 5-15 tube watts. The sticky on amps and stuff has more information.

Ignore this at all costs. That is complete over kill and a complete waste of money. You don't need to spend in excess of £200 for a great bedroom level practice amp or a bit more.

A 5 watt amp would be perfect for bedroom volumes. Look at the Roland Micro Cube (a great place to start and plenty of decent effects), fender Champ 600 and Blackheart Little Giant. If you want a bit more power, check out the Fender Vibro Champ, or Super Champ.

I guess you're right, I just like to play loud in my bedroom.

^^ this guy knows what he's talking about

but if you REALLY wanna go louder, hit up a relatively cheap Spider III 15w. It has a beavey of effects. Just don't go jamming with it.
*waits to be flamed to mentioning the Spider*

id stay with the valveking. a 212 valveking is 60 watts and that isnt necessary though for bedroom. get the 112 (40 watts), its more bang for buck in your situation. also, once u get the valveking, sell your mt-2 and buy an OD pedal to tighten up the valvekings sound.

gear:
Ibanez RG7321 w/ D-sonic in bridge

Peavey 5150 mk ii & b52 4x12 cab

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

The Valveking 2x12 is 100w iirc.


Valveking is not the best option.

oops, my mistake. and in his sig, it says hes already saving up for the 212, so im saying if he wants the VK, he would be better off with 112

The TS doesn't even have a sig

Yeha eh's looking at another guy's sig...

Actually 5 watt tube is too loud for a bedroom! For bedroom only, a Micro CUbe will be more than enough!

5 watts tube 15 to 20 watts SS is good for bedroom. With the money you save on a 5 watt tube (unless you go boutique), get some pedals. You'll have great tone and good versatility.
