  • 7 Best Tube Amps For Home Use - The valve amp sound at lower volumes Part 1

    27:12

    Dagan talks us through his 7 favourite tube amps for home use, so you can get that valve sound without being evicted or blowing out your windows.

    Read More:

    If you want that lush valve sound, but don't want to have to turn up your amp to ear shattering levels, these tube amps are light enough to carry to practice, small enough sit in the living room or your apartment yet provide the tube amplifier sound you want - just at lower volumes.

    However, each of these 7 amplifiers are perfect for small gigs and studio sessions thanks to the fact you can still crank the volume when you need to.

    Best of all, they're all extremely budget friendly too.

  • Best Low-Volume Amp: A 20-Year Quest

  • Getting HUGE Tones at Quiet Volumes with BIG AMPS!

    13:29

    In this video, I show you how to get really great electric guitar rock and roll tones (dad-rock) at low volumes. This video is targeted towards those who only have big amplifiers. Getting a good tone down on an album or recording can be a challenge on a large amp when you don't want to wake up the neighbors. In this video, I show you how I dial in a great guitar tone at a low volume using a 20-watt amplifier with a 12 speaker.

    One thing a lot of people don't know is that overdrive and distortion pedals were designed to give you the huge tone at any volume. Most people think of an overdrive or distortion as a boost pedal these days.

    I am not using any other tricks or power attenuation devices in this recording. I have also not added any post EQ to the recording. If you want a fatter tone you can simply add it in post-production or EQ the pedal accordingly.

  • That Pedal Show – Thoughts On Low Volume & Home Tones

    53:15

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    In this episode we are looking at your options for low volume sounds: bedroom tones!
    We choose four different routes to playing at low volumes, and endeavour to keep everything under 80dB (measured at around seven feet away from the amps).

    We’re using a computer software approach with IK Multimedia Amplitube Max; a small digital modelling amp with the Yamaha THR10; plus a small and big amp on the end of a regular pedalboard. Obviously these aren’t the only four options, but it’s a start!

  • Are low wattage guitar amps BETTER than high watt amps?

    9:46

    A common misunderstanding is that if one is playing at bedroom levels than a low watt amp is better for their purposes since a 20w amp is half as loud as a 40w amp, right? Actually, well... no. We'll discuss this a bit along with other reasons that contribute to how loud a guitar amp is as well as which one could be best for your needs.

The only problem is, you’re a little bit confused as to what exactly each of these little knobs actually does!!! But don't worry, PMTVUK are here to help!

    In this video, we take an in depth look at the most common types of amplifier controls and how best to use them.

  • The 3 Best Home Use Guitar Amps for 2017!

    37:29

    This is a video shoot out between (in our opinion!) the 3 best home use amps on the market today. We compare the Yamaha THR10 to the Vox Adio GT & the Fender Mustang GT40.

    For more info on the Vox Adio go here -
    For more info on the Yamaha THR10 go here -
    For more info on the Fender Mustang GT40 go here -

    It was a bit of a challenge to mic up all 3 amps in a way that really replicated the kind of sounds we get in the room. So unlike our normal videos where we close mic each amp, in this video we're just using a couple of room mics. I hope you find the sound OK. Its the same mics for every amp, so apart from their relative position, it should be a fair comparison. All these amps were recorded at home use volume levels.

    As we discussed in the video, many of you will be able to use bigger & louder amps at home, and if you're one of those people, then absolutely amps like the Boss Katana, Fender Blues Junior & Blackstar HT5 (to name but a few!) may be a better choice than these. But if you need something really small, and really quiet, then we think these three amps are the best!
    Let us know which one won you over!

    Cheers

  • That Pedal Show – Amps: How Many Watts Do You Need?

    29:19

    Welcome to That Pedal Show and thank you for watching – please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    In this episode, Daniel and Mick are tackling a couple of potentially confusing questions…

    • How relevant is the output wattage of your amp to its actual volume?
    • How relevant is the output wattage of your amp to its tone, dynamics and response on the end of your guitars and pedals?

    To help explore these questions and more, they have a Vox AC10 Twin (approx. 10 watts), Vox AC30 (approx. 30 watts) and a Mesa Lone Star (approx 100 watts) on hand.

    Daniel is using his Fender Custom Shop ’63 Telecaster and Mick is using his Fender American Vintage ’62 Stratocaster.

    The pedals used today are:
    Wampler Tumnus Overdrive
    UK & Europe:
    USA:
    Australia:

    Fire Custom Shop Carpe Diem Distortion - no longer made

    Analogman ARDX20 Analogue Delay


    As always, all amp and effects switching and routing is via TheGigRig G2.

    Now, this almost certainly won’t be the last video we do on the subject as we suspect it will throw up a ton of questions. We absolutely love your feedback but before taking to the keyboard, the following may answer some of the more obvious questions…

    Mick’s thoughts after hearing the audio and editing the video…

    Well that was interesting! As Dan and I mentioned during the video, we had an idea of what the resultant tones would be, but we were interested to hear what actually made it to the recorder. A number of questions spring to mind after hearing the audio back…

    Q: Why didn’t we use a dB meter so there was a visual representation of the volume differences?
    A: It would have confused things further. Your ears/brain are incredibly sophisticated at interpreting loudness in a way that your eyes/brain just aren’t. Plus, the last time Mick used a dB meter (comparing amps with a dragster for Guitarist mag), the dB results had very little relevance to what we actually ‘heard’ on the day.

    Q: How come all the amps sound more or less the same volume in the audio?
    A: Because quiet signals don’t sound as good as loud ones. If we’d have set the recording levels to handle the highest level from the Mesa, the AC10 would have sounded relatively thin and weedy, which certainly was not the case in the room. Mics require a little more intervention than your ears when it comes to level adjustment.
    Also during playback, your brain will tell you that a louder sound (as long as it’s not over loud or clipping) is ‘better’ than a very quiet one. Again, we wanted to avoid that bias.

    Q: How loud was it, really, in the room?
    A: The faces tell the story! The AC10 and AC30 were borderline uncomfortable. Probably an excellent club gigging level, although we’ve had to play A LOT quieter. The Mesa was more than uncomfortable for more than a few seconds’ playing. It’s hard to imagine a ‘normal’ pub or club gig where you’d get to play that loud (in mine and Dan’s world anyway).

    Q: Don’t confuse a ‘loud’ sound with a ‘full’ sound? What does that mean?
    A: This relates to recorded guitar tones. We attempted to demo the answer in the video, but as it happens, the Mesa ended up sounding pretty big too, and that may well be because of the room mics we use. In addition to the Sennheiser e906 mics on the amps there is also an X-Y pair on our recording device (Zoom H6), faced away from the amps. We mix some of this in with the cab mics as it gives a more realistic impression of what we’re hearing in the room – a lone e906 (or SM57) on a belting speaker really doesn’t sound like the amp in the room. It sounds smaller, more contained, with little of the low-end resonance and whatever else the room brings. It can be a great sound for recording in a track because it sits well in a mix. In addition, the louder you push a big amp, the more those reflections and room sounds can become problematic for the mics, which is why you need to limit them, either by acoustic treatment in the room, or by simply using close mics only. All of which helps to explain why using smaller amps with a couple of mics can be so much less hassle and yield far better results when recording - especially at home or in small project studios. That’s what we mean when we say a ‘loud’ sound isn’t necessarily a ‘big’ sound.
    Er, except when you're out playing live, un-mic'd. In which case it's hopefully both!

    Q: So did we actually conclude anything in the end?
    A: Yes! You can get a great sound out of any decent valve amplifier, regardless of wattage, when you have your pedals chosen and set up to work with that amp. Some people like smaller amps cranked to compressing, overdriving oblivion, while others like big amps for maximum headroom and dynamic range from their pedals.

    We are also members of Patreon, should you wish to support us with That Pedal Show

    In this video Daniel and Mick are discussing the practicalities and benefits of using lower power guitar amps to get great tones at real-world volumes.
    We’re also responding to a question we asked regularly: ‘Can you use some normal/smaller amps to get good sounds, instead of the really powerful/expensive/boutique stuff?’

    Yes we can!

    So we’re taking a Fender Blues Junior – probably the most widely used 15-watt valve amp in the world – and a 5-watt Marshall Class 5 as the basis for our tones, on the end of a bunch of common effect types.

    The pedals we’re using today:

    • Origin Effects Cali76 Compact Deluxe

    Australia:

    • Lovepedal Vibronaut - no longer made

  • Blackstar HT-1R Amplifier Review - A Cool Tube Amplifier With Great Reverb

    3:12

    Dagan checks out the Blackstar HT-1R Amplifier and demonstrates why its one of the best tube amps for home use.

    Check out the amp over at PMT Online today:

    The Blackstar HT-1R amplifier packs all the tone and valve amp ferocity of the award-winning HT-5 valve amp into a 1 Watt format. This highly portable amplifier is a great practice amp that provides all that lush valve amp tone at lower volumes.

    The Blackstar patented ISF circuit lets you choose the tonal qualities in an instant, allowing you to go from the coveted USA amplifier sounds to the classic UK amplifier tones and anywhere between.

    This also makes a great practice amplifier and a great tube amp for home use thanks to the speaker emulated output, Line Input, and 4-16” speaker outputs, which are perfect for recording in the studio, at home or practising without blowing out the windows!

    The Blackstar HT-1 gives you all the crunch and dynamics of a traditional 100W amp but at a neighbour friendly volume. The use of an ECC82 dual triode in push-pull configuration produces a 1-watt output, but still gives you the characteristics of a fully turned up tube amplifier. One of the best amps for apartments too!

  • That Pedal Show – Big Amp, Little Amp & Thoughts On Volume, Tone & Feel For Playing Or Recording

    1:1:17

    Welcome to That Pedal Show! Please subscribe to our channel and visit our store

    Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.


    In this episode we take another loose wander through one of the very most important – and yet confusing – topics in electronical guitaralisation: the interdependence of volume, tone and feel. Moreover, the difference between what you hear and feel in the room while playing… and what ends up hitting the recorder.
    No single video could ever hope to address the whole topic, but spurred on by a conversation that Mick had with the venerable Michael Landau just recently, a theme emerged for a discussion and we decided to run with it. We started in one place, veered to various others and hopefully passed via a few illuminative rest points along the way: quintessential TPS.
    If you’re hoping to garner some solid how-to information, this really isn’t the video for you. It’s one of those ‘leading to better questions’ voyages on which we so often find The Good Ship TPS.

    If you are confused why the amps sometimes sound the same volume through the headphones, despite a 30dB difference on the dB meter… It’s because we vary the input gain of the microphone to the recorder. The in-room experience is //radically// different between the quiet and loud sounds, but we have no real way of demonstrating that other than by trying to explain it in words and reactions.
    It’s another reminder of why you can’t really trust video demos of products for a definitive idea of what they sound like. Because microphones are not your ears and gut... and they never will be.

    Please enjoy the video – we hope it encourages you to ask new and better questions. Or indeed confirms what you already know. Either is fine with us!

    How can you get a great blues guitar sound and how should you set your amp up? In this step by step amp settings lesson I'll show you a simple method for setting up your guitar amp so that you can get a great blues guitar tone out of your speaker every time!


    Blues Amp Settings - Setting Your Amp fror Great Blues Guitar Sound

    In this guitar lesson I'll show you how to set your amp for a great blues guitar sound every time. Here's a breakdown of what you'll learn in this lesson.

    0:00 In this lesson you'll find out how to set up your amp plus how to avoid the no.1 mistake many guitar players make when setting up there guitar amp for a great blues sound. I made it! Now you can avoid it...

    0:53 Amp EQ Settings Guide

    See the front panel of my tube amp to see how I set it up. I set the bass and treble controls to about 6-7 and the mid to about 3-4. Try sweeping through the mid control though to find the 'sweet spot'. The mid control is very influential on your sound.

    1:32 Presence, Reverb and Gain Amp Settings

    Presence controls the overall brightness and I normally set it to about 2-3. A touch of reverb is often nice but don't use too much! Also with gain or distortion - be aware of using too much! We want a nice crunchy, singing tone that isn't too 'fuzzy' sounding.

    2:03 Pickup Tips

    Try the different pickups on your guitar. I normally use the neck pickup on my strat for a warmer sound. The bridge pickup is a little too bright for my tastes - but it's a personal thing so make up your own mind here.

    2:39 Volume Knob 'Trick' for Chords and Solos

    Here's a simple way to use the same amp settings for solos and chords without being too loud. Simple...but free!

    3:26 Many guitarists use way too much distortion and reverb when they play blues. I definitely used to! It takes away the definition of the notes and 'muddies' your playing. Try turning the reverb and gain controls down as low as you can stand them and see how you like it.

  • 10^n + Gainmaster = best practice amps - ultra low volume - guitar amp tone talk/demo

    59

    Bob Gjika talks about how to get the best low-volume guitar amp tone - The best practice guitar amps (bedroom amplifiers) are the practice guitar amps you can play at club volume or whatever volume you desire - with the Gjika Gainmaster and 10^n guitar amps, you have the best of all worlds. Bob Gjika builds his Powers of Ten guitar amps in pairs, and it's always fun for him on his first sit-down with to switch back and forth between the pair and get to know the special tone/voice of each amp. All guitar amplifiers are not created alike - Bob Gjika tests his new guitar amps out extensively for weeks, before allowing them to leave the shop as Gjika Powers of Ten amps. Getting great guitar tone is what this original design tube amp is all about. The Gjika 10^n has four KT77 power tubes and a pair of 12AX7s in the amp, and one 12AX7 in the floating front end known as the Gjika Gainmaster, and as you can see, this floating front end allows for a beautifully clear cranked amp sound, at an ultra-low volume, like you hear in this video, as well as any other volume you desire to play at.

  • Fender Pro Junior III Amplifier Review - A tube bedroom amp thats loud enough for the stage

    2:35

    Dagan talks us through a great tube amp for home use that's loud enough for gigs too: the Fender Pro Junior III Combo Amplifier.

    Fender Pro Junior III available now at PMT Online:

    This very portable 15 watt tube amplifier provides all that lush valve sound at all volumes, meaning you get beautifully responsive tone playability and that coveted breaking up sound without cranking it too much.

    The Pro Junior 3 features a single channel design and a pair of 12AX7 preamp tubes, 2 x EL84 power tubes and a solid state rectifier to give you that unmistakable valve sound. You can get that fat, punchy mid range by just cranking the gain a touch, making it a great amplifier for apartments and home use.

    But thanks to the 15 watts and 10” speaker, it is still an extremely powerful amplifier for the stage and studio. It's also one of the best amps for guitar pedals - especially useful if you have some effects pedals lying around.

    A versatile valve amplifier that is budget friendly, portable and full of great tube tone! Perfect for home use, apartment/flats and the musician in need of lush valve tone at lower volumes.
