What kind of amp?

What kind of amps do you guys play through at home? What kind of music do you play?
I use either a Fender Mustang 1 or my Line6 SpiderV 120.

Depending on my mood my Blackstar Fly or my Fender Supersonic 22. Usually the Fly though as I mostly play along with videos/backing tracks at home. Just wish the delay was longer on it.

I need a different routine. I try to play along to music in my iTunes but sometimes thatís just tedious. I need to look into those backing tracks

The backing track are great. I like downloading blues and jazz type tracks. Sometimes I download them to my ipod or phone and play them thru my PA. I'll plug into my SFDR and jam along. Great way to spend a couple of hours.

At home I have several choices, but I usually play through a much modded Epiphone Valve Jr. It's only produces 5 watts but it's loud enough for my garage where I practice. I play contemporary Christian rock music which basically means I have to produce almost any tone, from U2, to Classic Rock, to country or blues. I practice to mp3s off my phone, which is plugged into a small stereo setup.

I normally don't play through an amp, if I have a twiddle at home. On the rare occasions I do want to play through an amp, I have a little Vox AC4TV.

A well done backing track channel. Some good tracks here. I just play along with my cheapo computer speakers.
