  • Modeling/Tube advice

    I've in the past used a JCM800 for everything and got bored, went through a thousand tube amps some better than others.  Now 30 years later I tried a Fender mustang 1 and love some of the settings.  The problem is I feel I want to duplicate some of the 80s/90s style hot tones and still stay true to tubes but can't find something I like in my price range.  Should I boost the mustang with a tube power amp or?

    I wouldn't. Modeling has its purpose, but modeling mixed with tube amps always means a compromise imo.


    80's tone- Jcm800, Chorus pedal, Delay pedal, Boost should cover it.
