My amps consist of..

 

1967 Supro Thunderbolt

1967 Fender Bassman

1959 Gibson Discoverer

1965 Silvertone

THD Univalve

Jet City Picovalve

Fender Hot Rod Deville

90's Ampeg Reverberocket

and two "Rock" amps from the '80's, now a defunct company.

Also, one unknown "Eastern Amplifier" amp from the 1940's. 

 

If you consider the Fractal Audio Axe FX II an amp, then mark me down for one of those as well.

I have a B-52 AT100 head and a B-52 4x12 Stealth cab. Inexpensive suckers. I retubed the whole shabang, power and pre sections.

 

Dirty channel always sounded like balls, but the clean is sparkly clean…which I pollute with stomp boxes :mrgreen:

 

Been eyeballing the Marshall DSL15C so I'm not breaking my back every time I want to jam somewhere

Mostly playing through a VHT Special 12/20 (@12W) through a Blackstar HTV-112 Cab.

 

Others:

Fender Mustang II v1, with added speaker-out connection.

I still have my first amp.  It's a SS Peavey Bandit 65.

Some headphone options:  Zoom G5, old POD 2 (meh), and an old Rockman Bass :smile:

Usually play thru my Blackstar HT-1R because I want to overdrive the amp, but have to keep it at a respectable volume for my neighbors. For clean tones I play thru a Fender Blues Jr. III with either a TS-9 and/or Big Muff Pi w/ Tone Wicker in front of it.

I am using a Peavey KB100.  It is a keyboard amp (I do have a keyboard as well).  It has enough dynamic range that I can play both my guitar and bass through it.  With 3 inputs I have both the bass and guitar plugged in.  I can plug either a microphone or the keyboards into channel 1 as it has both xlr and 1/4" inputs.  I just got a 1/8" trs to dual 1/4" ts cable so I can plug my laptop into two channels of the amp and my guitar/bass connects to channel 1 via passive direct box (and the computer as well).

Marshall AFD100

Marshall YJM100

Marshall 1960av

Marshall MG10 

Roland Micro cube

 

..then i also have Guitar Kontrol/Guitar Rig, but I hardly ever use that, because when I record it's more going through the YJM or Logic's amp designer

These days you're better off just buying a multi-effects and modelling pedal. When you're rehearsing or gigging just plug it straight into the PA. Basically means you're not limiting your tone by just having one amp or amp/cab combination.

this is my new setup (for now)

Marshall JCM2000 head paired with marshall JCM900 1960a cabinet loaded with celestion g12t-75s

im using a thd hotplate power attenuator to keep it from peeling the paint off the walls, and splitting the signal between the amp and rocksmith.

Since I live in an apartment, I can't be too loud, so I mostly use either Roland Cube 20X with power squeeze, or the awesome Yamaha THR5.

 

I use a Fender ABY pedal to connect the guitar to both Rocksmith and the Amp directly. This way I hear both the RS processed sound and the real amp sound. I set the music volume to 70%. This gives a really good and realistic guitar tone, I find.

this is pretty much what i do, i run a "livewire" aby switch to the amp, im using a power break on the marshall to keep the volume down to neighbor friendly levels while still overdriving the crap out of the tubes .. best of both worlds :D  i keep my volume in rocksmith down to under 10% though .. i have soooo much lag, it sounds like im playing with a funky delay

Don't have one yet, but I'm thinking of getting Orange Micro Crush. Don't wanna get any bigger right now, since I live in an apartment building and don't want to disturb my neighbors. Also, it looks cool :3

E: Just got my Micro Crush today and I was suprised at its quality! looks really nice and the sound isn't shabby either. Gotta try to record it through my Line in, see if it sounds as nice as I think through that.

I actually like playing over my bass rig while playing Rocksmith, I hook up  the realtone cable to my amp via the fx send output. So this way there is no problem with latency :)

 

I play a TC Electronics Rebelhead 450, with an Eden 2x10XST cabinet and a homebuild Greenboy fearful 12/6 cab

just be careful with plugging the RS cable into the amp ... if the signal is too hot, it could easily fry your cable, or worse the usb slot!

 

(dont ask how i know this :( )
