  • POD HD500 + What amp? Suggestions!

    If I were to get the POD HD500, what amp would I get with it?



    It's VERY important that it plays really well at low volumes, since I live in an apartment, and I prefer to listen to it through the amp speaker than through headphones or computer speakers.



    The THR10 would in my opinion be a little redundant considering it's a modelling amp, and I am getting the POD, so what do you people think?



    "VERY important that it plays really well at low volumes"

    If I felt like playing at 2AM where everyone are asleep, I would like to be able to and still enjoy the sound coming out of the speakers.



    Suggestions?

    For cost and size effectiveness, I'd get a pedal size power amp, like the EHX 44 zmagnum or omething like that.

                I use an AMT Tubecake 1.5 at night. It's 1.5 watts. Through a good speaker cab it CAN get louder than your neighbors would want, but it's a very slow, smooth taper on the master so you can play really, REALLY quietly if you want. It's my go-to for quiet playing without firing up the recording setup to use the monitors.

                    I'd get something neutral and probably FRFR so what shask said. Even the magnum 44 is coloured, so is the AMT with tube sim characteristics. The pod can turn off power amp sims.



                    I think the THR10 is unsuitable because even though it will sound great with the pod through the flat or aux in or what it has, it will sound miles better and make you sell the pod unless you are going for high brutal gain!
                    "is this tone obtainable using the HD500 or Axe Fx? Overall, for convenience and volume control, should I buy the Axe Fx over actual tube amps? I don't plan on playing loud; just playing at home and recording on my Mac. Thanks man, you are awesome!


                    short answer: no...

                    long answer: no way..."

                      Guy I play with uses the HD through a Bad Cat Cougar 5 combo. Sounds pretty amazing!

                        ^ Truth ^



                        The THR10 doesn't do near as much as the POD but........what it does do it does a hell of a lot better.



                        The THR is one of the best amp modeler out there.

                            I think a 12" 800w speaker might be a little overkill when you live in an apartment, thanks anyway



                            I actually don't have the pod yet,

                            The pod just seems more newb friendly than the THR10, for what reason would i get the pod and what would be good with it?
