Hello my dear good friends, So, lately I have been on a quest to find awesome guitar tonez through headphones while playing at home. Due to my living situation, I play mostly with headphones in order to not disturb others. I posted in the amp sections of this forum inquiring about a good amp with an onboard headphone output, gave a high end modeler (Axe FX II) a try and decided it just wasn't for me. I've always played valve amps and that's just what I prefer. The problem is, most valve amps with onboard headphone outputs don't sound too great. I get by with a Blackstar HT-1 but I want to upgrade. I want a big upgrade lol. A fellow member suggested getting an amp head with an XLR output with speaker emulation (I believe this feature is for recording) and the Friedman Runt 20 was brought up. I came across this video and I'm almost dead set on getting this thing and trying to go this route. Seriously, what do I need in order to get a sound like this with headphones? Specifically talking about the sound at 3:45. I've listened to other "at home" recordings of this amp and I haven't been disappointed with any. I know I need a mixer, maybe some type of interface, or perhaps both. I'll be honest though, this is extremely unfamiliar territory for me. I don't know nothing about no mixers, interfaces, or recording software. From my understanding, I could just play with headphones without the ability to record anything if I only had a mixer. I would be interested in recording down the road, but one step at a time. I'd like to know more about mixers and how to use them. How much of an impact would it have on my sound? I'm interested in high sound quality, not necessarily multiple features. Since guitar is my primary hobby, I'm willing to shell out a few extra bones. PS - I will also use the Runt 20 with an Orange PPC Cab. So yeah, it's not only going to be used with headphones.
