    Hey guys. New here and got a question.

    I'm struggling to get a good bedroom practice setup. Was using the amp simulator softwares for quite a bit now but I finally gave up trying to get some good tones out of them.

    I'm thinking of getting an amp, not too big and putting a mic infront of it, connect the mic to my audio interface, and have headphones into that audio interface so I can still enjoy the loud volume. Also thinking of getting an attenuator pedal so I can crank up the amp and get the bitey tone at a lower volume that goes into the mic. Does this setup work? If not, any other suggestions? I really prefer to use headphones to get loud volumes and I don't want to plug it in directly into the amp because I feel like it will be the same with the simulated sound.

    And also, any suggestions for an amp for such setting? I'm looking to get 80s british metal band tone (iron maiden, judas priest, etc) and also, if possible, something slightly heavier into thrash metal but nothing too heavy. Willing to spend upto like $600 ~ $700.

    Jeez.. your giving yourself a headache! Orange Micro Terror with a pedal. Not sure if Marshall stuffs arround with that sort of thing but I have a MT with 5751 & dig it. For 6-700 bucks you can get one, a pedal, headphones & 3-400 of the drug of your choice.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Are you talking about the head or the combo?

    Thanks for the suggestion. Are you suggesting I plug headphone into the micro terror directly?

    How difficult is it to change the speaker out? I've never done it.

    If it has to be a Marshall, look at the DSL15 head. They sound great, especially the green channel with a pedal, won't break the bank and you can even mod them easily if you like to tinker (plenty of threads here for that).

    edit: oh yeah, sorry...welcome!

    How does that sound? I was afraid that it might sound like an emulated muddy sound and not natural like through a real speaker.

    Thanks! It doesn't have to be a marshall I just thought it was a good starting point since I like 80s metal tone. Any cab suggestion to go with that?

    Pretty damned good actually but it depends on the monitors, more than you would expect. BTW Don't let anyone here talk you into a MG series, they are Marshall saying I'm not gay but 50c is 50c.

    I like the DSL15 head also. I've played a few in stores and they sounded pretty good a low volumes through a 1X12 cab. Oh, and welcome to the Forum!!

    My home studio setup for home or "bedroom" playing and recording uses the Two-Notes Captor and Torpedo C.A.B, to let me crank the amp and get fantastic speaker simulated output (with all the bells and whistles you could ask for). I run it to my mixer and/or audio interface and listen through the home studio monitors or headphones.

    It costs a bit, but it's worth it.

    :cheers:
    :welcome: To the forum I would also
    recommend the origin 20.
    But I would go with the head, but you will have to get a cab,
    changing out the speaker is an easy task on the combo, so don’t dismiss tce63’s post!
    Cheers Mitch

    Hmm, I don't know, just comes down to personal pref. I'm a greenback fan for all things distorted. I have an old 2x12 cab loaded with a pair of Splawn smallblock spkrs (splawn's version of greenbacks but at higher wattage) a friend gave me that I run the DSL15 into, it's a KILLER sounding, bedroom friendly rig for daily practicing, heck, if I were to go play with friends again, I'd probably leave my babies at home and drag that little setup with me and not feel like I'm sacrificing tone.

    Keep us posted on what you go with.
