franky, Well, I can get direct flights from here to Denver, Phoenix, and Dallas -- and starting this summer to LA. Is there any place in these cities where a player can try out one of these rigs? I think the big problem here is in the area of marketing. Those of us who are open to the idea of having GOOD modeling amp (not some cheap $250 thing) don't know where to go to try one out. I get emails almost daily from Sweetwater, MF, and GC and no mention of these. And no mention when I go to their websites. And further, who would want to invest the required amount of money without personally playing one first? Not me! So, where do we need to go to try one out? BTW, I fairly often fly to Denver and Dallas, and could incorporate an amp "try out" into one of those trips. Especially Dallas.
