    Nice amp that's what my guitarist uses and blows away his old SS Marshall he use to have.

      ...but what I really want is to add a Mesa Road King to my collection!

        Either an AC15hw2 or an AC30hw head thru and Egnator 2-12.

        Question for those who gig with an AxeFX - do they have a good classic amp sound for Vox/Rickenbacker head like me? My first foray into rack processors yielded only compressed cheesy metal sounds. How would you say those things work for classic AC sounds and feel ?

          ^^This.



          Handles everything from dead cleans to wicked drive. With this, a few pedals, and my strat and LP, I can cover basically anything in the book.



          Not to mention it's light and plenty loud enough for any gig we'll ever play. I mic it at every gig with a Sennheiser e609. Played to 600+ people with this rig last weekend. Biggest show to date for us (in terms of numbers).

              I've got a hand full of amps that I use for different situations (Classic 30, silverface super, Carvin Bel Aire 1x12, , but my main sex machine is an early 90's pre 500 Mesa tremoverb 2x12. That thing for me is just the perfect curve of the hip.....



              But I've been impressed recently with a Line 6 DT25 with a 1x12 cab I bought for my church gig (with their money). I've been tweaking it and using it for the last several months, and I am highly impressed. Thinking about getting the 50 watt head with a 2x12 cab for me. Bank account says no, but well, you know how that goes.....

                Nice to hear positive experiences with the DT. I've been intrigued by that one but have a hard time getting over the stigma of Line 6's endless parade of ****************ty amp after ****************ty amp. Do you use one of the new PODs with it?

                  Not playing an electric guitar in a band.

                  Back when I did, I had a old Peavey Artist 240, and later a USA Crate Vintage Club 2110.(still got em both).

                  Right now I'm using a Roland AC60 for guitar, and an SWR Workingman's 12 for upright and electric bass.

                  The next amp I buy will prob be an upright bass rig.

                  I seem to get more gigs with my upright than guitar.

                    Carvin V3 head in my rock band.



                    Fender HRdeville or Peavey C30 for smaller gigs/jams.

                      Yeah I do....but really it took me a while to work thru all the "integrated" bull****************....they make a big deal of that, but it is just marketing foo....as a two channel amp it stands alone as a great amp. The topologies do what they are supposed to do.



                      I never saw any Line 6 product as anything other than a doo dad filled practice amp. I bought and still have a Flextone III 2x12. I got it stupid cheap ($175 with a floorboard), and keep it as a solid state amp. But it ain't no jewel. In the league of a Peavey Bandit with some nice efx. Does the job. Doesn't make me horny to play it. At all.



                      But I played the dt25 and was impressed, so I pulled the church's trigger and got it (I love O.P.M.!!!). And I have to say, I'm impressed. I use it every Sunday. I even took it to a rock/dance cover thing, and did a funk/fusion gig with it and remained impressed. It felt like a real amp. When tweaking, I got pretty frustrated and almost gave up. But eventually had to ignore the modeling bull****************, start from scratch and dial up an amp configuration I liked, then added the efx and saved it to the patch. Patch 1) clean and dry. Patch 2) clean w/ verb and comp. Patch 3) clean with rev, cho and dly. Patch 4) light touch sensitive crunch. Patch 5) thick crunch. Patch 6) basic distortion. Patch 7) modern metal. I've got it to where I can add a few doo dads to each of those patches (univibes, wah, boost, etc).



                      Next on my GAS list is a Ceriatone OD50 head, and after that if I'm not homeless, it's the DT50. And really, I'm probably not going to get the HD500. I'll just use it as a 2 channel amp and loop and front end my efx.

                        Incredible tone, takes pedals well (I use a Rat, tuner and Tubescreamer), is very light and loud. Best club amp I've ever had (I've used a '57 Tremolux, '65 Bassman, '71 Super Reverb, Roland JC, Ampeg V2, etc).

                          I think they do pretty well. I'm not going to say it is dead on, but there are enough parameters you can tweak, that you should be able to get almost there. You could definitely get close enough that the audience couldn't tell. Here are the things that sold me on mine (the short list) - ton of high quality amp models, quality built in effects, forum community support, the fact that the amps clean up if I roll back my volune and compliments from soundmen on how good it sounds and how easy we are to mix without the stage noise.



                          I probably use 10-15 percent of what the unit is capable of - but if I get motivated, I could have several patches and match each song. Right now I just use a "pushed clean" tone, vox-like crunch, Marshall-ish crunch, and a Heavy setting using an Orange.

                              This is on my short list. Is it easy to control the volume difference between normal and boost?

                                Dig my ghetto rig! Yet, it sounds FANTASTIC...



                                I run my guitar thru a Line 6 M9 and into a Behringer Ultra-G DI box, with the cab simulator on. This goes direct to the PA.



                                I've never been happier with my stage tone... The M9 provides really great drive tones, and the cab sim on the Behringer DI is fantastic. Competent sound guys can mix my guitar in really easily this way, and I can get the exact amount of monitoring I want.



                                It's not as sexy as playing a super pricey amp, but it sure is more useful (for me). YMMV.
