A line6 pod through headphones. Since I prefer not to be murdered in my bed by my neighbours, it's really the only way.

Blackstar ht-1r. But now that I have Rocksmith I regret of buying it.

I picked up a Yamaha G100-210 III for really cheap and am very happy with it. It has a very nice clean and the built in reverb is decent enough. The gain is alright, but I usually have a distortion pedal hooked up as I tend to play a lot of metal.

Bass: Zoom B3 into headphones / nearfield monitors, and I absolutely love it.

 

Guitar: Guitar Rig 5 from Native Instruments, though I don't play as much guitar anymore.

I sold my Vox AC30 a couple years back, since I'm not playing live. I've got an Epiphone Valve Junior still, which is a great little tube amp. I plan to pick up a new multi-effect pedal eventually, maybe one of those Vox amps. But mostly I'm happy practicing with Rocksmith.

Lol I play RS with my amps.  A couple months ago picked up a Pevey VYPR VIP-3 for guitars and a Fender Rumble 150w combo for Bass.  The Pevey is nice with all the built in effects and emulated AMP/Heads.  Would recommend that in a heartbeat for anyone looking to do a nice Y-slitter setup for a few hundred... it does bass too but the 15"woofer on the fender does bump way more.

My main amp is a Fender SuperSonic 22, and my practice amp is a VHT Special 6. I also have a small Orange Crush 20DLX that my daughter uses. The Fender is a great amp but it does have a lot of base noise so it can be annoying at low volumes.

I use a Blackstar ht-5r alongside rocksmith or when the neighbors are home, other times if they're out I may use my Fender Power Chorus, but its so loud I cant really turn it up over 1. I mainly just use the fender as my clean channel and the Blackstar with my pedals for the dirt channel when playing away from rocksmith

Carvin Quad-X Preamp with a Carvin HT 150 for power ( for now ). A homebuilt 212 cabinet loaded with Warehouse Guitar Speakers WGS Reaper on one side and a WGS Green Beret ( Think Celestion Green Back without the mid spike ) on the other.

Sadly, I have sold all my amps. :-I I am left with a 15w Marshall practice amp which isn't terrible. My favorite of the amps long gone is a Fender Super 212 tube.

I use a VOX VT20+ at home and Hugh&Kettner Attax100 with Cab. Although its fun to play along with RS14, the sounds just dont catch up to a real Amp.

I've got a Meridian AK15G, which was dirt cheap. About 40 quid as far as I remember. Doesn't sound great but I have a Digitech RP255 multi-effects pedal which has a shitload of different emulated amps and cabs on it so it can actually sound pretty decent.

 

I've also got a Marshall 100W bass head (not sure which model, probably says on the back somewhere) and a Peavey 2x15 bass cab. Not sure if the cab still works cos my puddy tat, Georgie Porgie, likes to crawl inside through a whole in the mesh and she has a tendency to chew through wires which is a right pain in the bum lol

I currently don't own an amp, yeah it sucks..

 

I use a Line 6 GX interface and I got Guitar Rig, Amplitube Metal, Pod farm, Peavey revalver and Ampeg Svx for bass.

 

I wish i was not so computer dependable to play the guitar and I since I want to join a band I will likely be getting an amp.

 

I'm thinking of a Roland Cube, at least 20w so drums don't kill the sound. I raed so many great reviews about those Cubes.

 

I also have a keeley modified Metal Zone and a Weeping demon junior wha. I guess I will use this chain, guitar +  metal zone + wha + amp cause for me wha is cooler after the distortion, otherwise the filter effect is much subtle.

 

PS: I just remembered that I have an amp, a little Marshall MS2 wich I never use
