Pods are great like Nicolas said. You can play them anywhere. If you use only distortion you can do the same with a vox amplug. But I also don´t understand the need of a "bedroom" tube amp. I have a peavey classic 30 and I play at my room every day. I just turn the master down and crank the drive where I need. Not the best sound that the amp can make, but pretty decent for a play along.
