    Dude! This subforum is cranking! I'm surprised it wasn't created sooner, come to think of it.
    I figured I had to soften my stance, as I plan to have my wife bring my Strat to me on the ship and I'll be plugging into my iRig with the phone. Yup. M&M is using modeling.
    Never saw that coming!
    Anyway....

    I saw a band this past weekend, both guitar players were playing Marshall tube half stacks. Both of them did not have half the tone my little Fender Mustang III has. I was expecting this rich wall of sound and all I heard was the tinny, shallow sound. I was not impressed.

    It's not really the fault of the amp. Those Marshalls rule... but there are no places left to play them at volume levels they require to really sound the way everyone loves. It's not the 70s and 80s anymore. Everyone knows that but old habits and attitudes are hard to walk away from. There are LOTS of guys that buy tube type amps here that are unhappy. You just don't read those threads cause they don't write them.

    I was thinking the same thing, the amps might have been turned so low, they couldn't work.

    That's the issue. And what most tube amp owners know whether or not they admit it. You just have to look at the attenuator companies and all the activity you see all over this site regarding them. Think about that for a minute. Let's buy a tube amp, then to get near the accepted tone the player must harness it like you would a pit bull in public. The Pit bull is no longer itself nor is the tube amp attenuated. Been there, done that over and over.

    One day, and I believe soon, many will realize what I describe as being accurate and TRY a different approach.

    Although I do realize MM started this thread as a GAG most that state modelers suck have never ever played a pro level one. So when given the choice of who to believe, MLP no experience dudes OR Metallica sound guy who switched his entire band on to Fractal.. I think I would go with the many pros that see a better way.

    Its so very hard for me to think about using something other than my tube amps,brother....I had such a disappointing experience with the Line 6 POD....When I bought it('04),it was all the rage and very expensive and well,I couldnt sell it fast enough....However,Im open to new tech for the guitar and willing to try some of these new systems out.

    One thing though,I still dont understand why some insist on playing out with an amp over 30 watts these days,unless the venue calls for it.....so much easier to just mic up a smaller rig,ya know?

    I hear you man. I almost lost my mind a while ago and bought a Line 6 dt25. I was in desperation mode, and freaking out. Glad I kept my head and found my Tungsten Buckwheat. I'm a very happy man these days!

    I frequent a club here in South Florida every week. There is a band that plays here where the guitar player shows up with a full stacked Egnator. It's funny to see because they play at "club" volume levels. I don't get it.
