    Well that Rivera Super Champ is a keeper no matter how many modeling amps come around.

    My new Soul Tramp is exactly what the Super Champ was except in a 5 watt package..

    I look at the Super Champ and now my Soul Tramp as (1) preset in a collection of hundreds contained in my AXE FX. That's the appeal for me. Having any tone I want when I want it has totally ruined me for conventional Tube type amplification.

    We haven't even touched on the other great use for the AxeFX which i plan on trying out very soon.
    Running one of my amps into my Rivera Rockcrusher as a load box, and then running direct out of the Rockcrusher into the Axe FX line in. Then I can use the Axe for all my speaker emulation as well, and hear my amp direct with 10's of thousands of different cabs and speakers! On top of all the amp modeling I can use it for.

    Seeing Pete Thorn do this with the Helix in his demo was a HUGE selling point for me. I have cool tube amps and to be able to utilize them with the modeling via a load box is some killer stuff!!! I just have to get a load box now!!
