    Funny...Wife bought me a Mustang one last year for Xmas and I have not been real satisfied with it. It appears that it is not the amp but the player in my case as Justin made it sound real good.

      I prefer the Line 6 modeling maps but to each his own. The usb feature is great for that price point

Maybe it is as simple as the Mustang nailing the AC/DC tone out of the box with it's Aussie Rock preset. I have also had fun creating a couple of my own presets. Maybe in a year I will be looking for something different. Who knows.



          I also have a Yamaha THR-5 that is a lot of fun for what it is.




          I do really like my Vox Valvetronix AD60VTX, but it was a series that was a step above the other line. I bought my son a Valvetronix AD50VT and was not that impressed with its tone. Not bad for the money, but it just seemed sorta stifled in most all modes. And that Super Champ XD, yeah, I got one of those too. To this day I still don't know what all the raves were about. I forgot to even include that in my little list of stuff below. But for some reason that amp seems to really lack any real bottom end for it. I've got other 1 x 10 combos that are a lot more impressive. Some folks just say you have to hook them up to an extension cab for them to "do their thing", but I just think they should do a bit better on their own. However, I just recently drug it out of hibernation and I've been enjoying it these last couple days (with lowered expectations). It's got some good tones coming out of it, it's just that they aren't big. My Orange Crush PiX CR35LDX could kick its ass.



          I recently got the Yamaha THR-10. Initially I was a bit disappointed since it tends to fart out fairly easy, but now that I've dropped the expectations to an even lower playing level, I do have to say I'm enjoying the thing. It's really a pretty cool concept. But I was initially, and I still am, impressed with the spatial characteristics of the tone of those things. It's now in my living room on an end table. It will probably get the most noodling use out there. Later on I may get around to playing with its USB realm.

          Well Dick, it's got a good beat, and I could dance to it, so I give it a 10!
          I have opinions of my own,strong opinions but I don't always agree with them.

              I got my THR-10 in October. I'm using the USB for the first time tonight. It's records pretty nicely!

                  I need to give it a try. So far I've avoided (not on purpose) mixing computers with my guitar hobby. I'm usually burnt out on having to try to figure out new technology at work, so when I'm home I like to just "plug and play". But I need to get with it. I'm missing out on too many things like tweaking and recording. Yesterday I just ordered the Eleven Rack bundle from Sweetwater. If I don't get it on with all its software add-ons, then shoot me now.

                      Other than Tech21 NYC products, I also have always hated modelers. Then I bought the Yamaha THR10. It's the exception for me; I still don't care for the Mustang.

                      I loathe plugging into any non-tube amp. I wish that wasn't the case, but when I can't blast a tube amp to my satisfaction(late at night, etc), I'd just as soon play through my Pandora and head phones. I also make an exception with the Tech 21 Sansamp pedals-none of which I own at the moment, but I have owned 3 and they're the shizzle.



                      Incidentally, I did have a Mustang I briefly-it is truly a fantastic amp with tons of cool features, but I couldn't get into it

                              I give the Kemper and the AxeFX equal marks, but the next step down is a big one, although still usable like the Mustang and a fraction of the price.
