    I'm just wondering what other TBers might be using for "unique" practice rigs (not just a small amp etc.). Personally, I've been using my laptop into my Pocket Rockit in my dorm as of late. It's also fun for me to take the setup outside and practice in the woods or as I'm sitting on the lawn in front of my dorm. I still need to try practicing at the beach though, maybe this week.

    I've been using a pioneer stereo set (SPEC-1&4 series)that I bought in Germany back 1981 while I was in the military. This thing is amazing, it actually sound better than any amp that I've ever owned. All the components are separate, it's got about 8 pieces to it, still rocks after these many years.
  6. Right now I'm using a combo for live and rehearsal but Ive used my Logitech computer speakers which sound surprisingly good, up to a certain volume. I use to play through my stereo by plugging into the VCR mono in.Plugging headphones into a Zoom works as well.Of course these don't work if your rehearsing with a drummer:meh:

    Lately my practice rig has been Sansamp ADI into a Behringer 4 channel mixer in chanel 1, Drum machine in channel 2, CD player into Tape-in, sometimes with my Minidisk recorder from Tape-out. If I am working up a vocal part, I'll plug my mic in channel 1 and use the 1/4 out from my Sansamp into channel 3. I monitor with my old Senheiser headphones.

    It's got that kind of mad scientist, cords everywhere, Heathkit, kind of vibe about it. Especially, if you add a stomp box or two to the mix. Usually I get to sit down with my bass about 10PM when the kids are finally in bed.

    For band practice I use a GK 400RB through a PoC cheap-o monitor from e-bay. I disconnected the tweeter. The driver is a twelve.
