I am making this thread as an owner of aPhaez PT40, Blackstar HT 40, Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister 18, and Bugera V22. I played a Marshall Code 50 yesterday. I have a Blackstar ID:core 10, which is great for low volume jams at night. But sometimes it doesn't have that natural response. The Marshall blew me away. If I was blind folded, I would have swore a Plexi was in the room. All those sweet dynamics we love in a tube amp. The Silver Jube settings were better than a real Silver Jube reissue I tried. I'be been saying that I were a recording or in demand gig player, I would probably buy a Kemper. I haven't had the opportunity to play high dollar emulators like the Kemper or Axe Effects, but if a $250 dollar digital Marshall can sound that good, tube amps are on borrowed time.
