For the longest time, purists and guitar snobs all over the world thumbed their nose at Line 6. I'll admit, their early stuff was groundbreaking, but not quite up to snuff when compared with a real tube amp.
However, with the release of the HD series....it seems like I'm seeing more and more guys playing out live with POD HDs, even without amps... I've talked to multiple guys that do most of their recording on these units, and really like them. I mean, in a perfect world, we'd all love a massive vintage amp collection...but these units are so good...it seems pretty hard to justify.
What about you guys? Do you think that the guitar world has finally accepted them?
