Re: Modelling Amplifiers
Just get a good tube amp, and get a modeling FX, you can keep your parameters and just have to move to a bigger amp for larger gigs. What I use is a 74' Fender Princeton w/JBL, for smaller gigs, and for larger ones I pull out my Marshall JCM 900, with 1960A cabinet for the wow factor.
I love the blues, and 70's rock, and can dig the new stuff. Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Jimmy Page being my top three, I also enjoy Richie Blackmore, Rory Gallagher, and Santana (got my picture with him).
