Often used to describe bands like Pantera and Exhorder. With mid-tempo riffs similar to those found in Thrash Metal and a tendency to focus more on groovy syncopation and heaviness than outright speed.
I used a headphone amp sometimes when I was starting off, and I have to say it wasn't very satisfying. I'm sure the technology has improved a bit since then. I haven't tried anything that plugs into my phone, but there are several headphone practice amps available that plug right into your guitar and are probably cheaper than any interface you could find - well under $100. Here's an article with a few of them: https://tonereport.com/blogs/tone-tips/hear-hear-5-headphone-amps-that-keep-it-down
An actual practice amp will probably wind up being more fun, and more sustainable for regular use. You can play them well below conversation level and still get a usable sound; I'm sure you could find a volume level that wouldn't set your neighbors off. Some of them also have headphone outputs that mute the speaker, so you get all of the advantages of a practice amp with a speaker (including the possibility of jamming with another musician), and the ability to rehearse quietly if it's necessary.
Thank you very much sir for your reply. I am still debating weather or not I should build it or not. I know a person that built a guitar. I'll wait till I meet him again to talk about it.
Meanwhile I have a different question. My most preferred way to start learning, practicing, and eventually playing a guitar is not through an amp, but through headphones. Several reasons for that, but mainly because I have very picky neighbors and they've already complain about loud noises to management.
I already ordered Beyerdynamic DT 990 headphones. When I was in a guitar center a salesman told me there is an app and possible a small device (or connectors) that comes with it that I can use to plug in my cellphone, headphones, and guitar to play that way. I also heard there are devices I can plug the guitar, headphones, and pc to to play that way. I lost the model number but a person showed me a device like that from Boss that is around $250. I also head that I can mess with the sound with one of those to get my preferred heavy sound I am looking for without any kind of huge amps and petals.
What do you think about that? Thanks!
