Hey guys been thinking about getting an Amp which I can play my Pod X3 Live through ( I just use some edirol monitors atm or headphones)
But to be honest I don't know where to start, would like a valve amp but not sure if that would work? don't want anything too loud 5 watt max for a valve.

I don't want individual pedals can't really afford them sad.gif

Currant ideas (don't know if there any good or not)

Blackstar HT-1r
Blackstart HT-5
Orange Tiny Terror
Laney L5T-112 Lionheart

Thats all I have atm any ideas??

Maybe either Blackstar since it sounds a little bit processed tone anyway (in a good way).

For more true tube tone I'd chose the Lionheart or TT or the tiny Laney.

Hmmm maybe that Laney can be an interesting choice. Generally what you need for POD is an amp with a very clean sound. It will allow you to reproduce the processed sound well. Using multieffects unit can be ok if you just use it to emulate stomp boxes (distortion, delay, chorus etc) and switch of the amp/cab modeling.

Never thought of that, turning of the amp simulation and just using the stomp modellers I do like the laney LH alot

Thanks Micke will check out the Tiny laney smile.gif

Blackstar or the laney if you just want to rehearse. If planning to play with a band, the fender hot rod will be a excellent choise! Loud as crazy, and pretty expensable smile.gif

I would say Blackstar HT5 seems like a nice choice. It have decent clean tone (although not loud for rehearsals), and there is FX Loop for experimenting. Ideally, you should use effects from POD only with FX loop, and not amp simulators. This way the sound will be better.

If you want to use amp simulations on it, it would be good to turn off cab simulator, and only use amp simulator.

I believe there were certain amps built specifically for the pods, I believe their brand was Atomic, they are like cabinets that provide a good sound for amp simulation.

I suspect you need the powered one, but as I'm not 100% sure I'd drop them a line:

That's how I generally use my pod in rehearsals or live. I bypass the amp + cabinet section and use is as a multifx. It works good in this way. You can use the 4 cables technique to put some process in front the amp and some effects in the loop.

I've never tried Atomic Amps but they seem to be the best option to monitor amp emulators.
