Before Rocksmith 2014, this is what I played my guitars through.  If only the GSP would play with Rocksmith, so I could play through the gear.  The sound quality would be studio quality then. One area Rocksmith is lacking in is big quality sound.

 

The speakers are custom made by Saxon Cabs here in Ontario.  Tim does incredible work.  This pair is handmade 1" pine, 2x12" Eminence Legends, partly closed back cabs.  The pair, including tax+shipping, was $1100 total. Try finding a better deal anywhere.

 

 

Cheers all.

Either a ~65ish Fender Bassman 135 head with matching 4x12 cabinet, or a Line6 Pod x3 with a TA1050 Poweramp and two custom cabinets (2x12" with horn and 2x10" with horn, 400W each). For guitar i use the pod with the fenders normal section and a 300W Marshall cabinet. I really got lucky with the bassman. Got it for 600 DM back in 1996. 2 years later i stumbled across the matching cab for another 300 DM.

Up until today, I'd always been using the shitty little practice amp that came with my guitar. (value brand set, about £90 all in)

 

Now that I'm starting to progress on guitar, I'd been looking for a new amp to have a play about with and see if that helped me at all. Popped into a local store, similar idea to a pawn shop/cash converters store, and noticed a Line6 Spider IV 15w for £39.99. 

Needless to say I picked it up and I've fallen head over heels in love with it since I got it home.

I used to have that Line 6 and it was great, In Insane amp mode you can get some crushing metal tones. Also it has a really loud volume for a small amp.

Yeah those model settings are fantastic for somebody like me who really doesn't know where to begin with all that sorta stuff.

 

I'm only using it as a practice amp as I'm nowhere near good enough to think about playing live or anything, so the volume is perfect. Good thing is that it would probably do me well at small venues too, if the need ever arises

I rebuilt a Univox (1205?) Cabinet from 1970 With 2 12" 350w Peavey Black Widow's 1201-8 BW. My head is an Acoustic B800H. Just a peek at before and after.

I've connected my bass and guitar to a mixer using DI boxes and the mixer output goes into my super special soundcard in my PC which has hardware effects and stuff like that, and from there it goes into my hifi system connected to the other soundcard. The hifi takes care of all the amplimifacation. It's not really a proper setup but I never have to rewire anything and it works for me - for the moment.

 

I also have a little Harley Benson practice amp that I got with my first guitar, but I hardly ever use it. It's kinda screwy.

 

Edit: one mixer output also goes into the rocksmith cable! Forgot to mention that.

I bought one of those for my son, awesome little amp. I think his is the 30-watt version.

All i have at the moment is a Marshall MG15CD amp, its small but sounds good. I hope to get a Mesa Triple Rectifier or Mesa Roadking when i get better and get some money to buy it.

I used to have a Fender Bassman goldface (late 1950's) amp and cabinet.  It had the warmest sound, especially with new tubes, but had a shocking personality.  But I let it go.  :cry:  Yeah ... I'm a freakin' genius!  Now I just use a small 25w practice amp.

I started off with that same amp and loved it. Since then I have moved up to the spider IV 75. Love the huge number of preset tones and the ability to save lots of my own.

I was thinking about picking up a new amp -- maybe one of those Vox amps with the massive pedalboard. Then I came across this:

 

 

Built in PROGRAMMABLE drums! Weird filter effects! It's like the guy reached into my brain and designed exactly what I've been looking for. Kind of pricey... gonna have to sell one of my guitars.

I took an amplifier out of old PC speakers.  Then I connected two speakers from an old stereo to it and run it through the headphone jack.  I am thinking of using a diode to connect a subwoofer.
