Cheers!Gigging isn't a concern at this stage, so if and when that comes up again I'll be picking up a head but I'm just thinking in terms of a cheap, portable set up for rehearsing  in multiple locations.I'm absolutely fucking clueless about the equipment aspect of things, so appreciate the advice. We'll see how it goes.

There's a lot to be said for pedal power amp and a cheap modeler, especially if it's only for practice.

another guitar nerd question:

Getting back to playing again and essentially this is gonna potentially involved 2 or 3 different projects using 2 or 3 spaces. So instead of buying 3 different heads and running myself into debt. I was gonna buy one of these pedal sized power amp jobs.

Anyone got any experience?I presume picking up a pre-amp pedal to run into it is the way to go, or could I just run my usual distortion and delay straight into this lad?



Looks like a handy piece of gear.  I said it to you before but worth reiterating, for a very capable and micro sized head I will stand by the Elf any day.

It's a little pricier but I have even cracked this out live, even recently at the Conan support, and it sounds massive with the right gear stacked in front - I've a Sunn Beta Lead clone preamp pedal on my board going into the front of it, the two together sre my clean sound, and it is crisp and loud.  All ditr comes from the rest of my pedals.  The amp fits in your back pocket.  Dylan Carlson toured with two a few years back, that's what turned me on to them.
Even temptes to replace my Laney 15W head with another Elf and a different preamp too.  Happy to give you a spin off it if you're down this neck of the woods any time.

Actually, went down the micro-head rabbit hole and found a load of DV Mark stuff that seems decent and affordable, so that may be the way to go methinks.
