If you are wanting one particular tone why not get that amp?

Back onto your question from what i remember with my brief usage of an eleven rack that does the mesa sounds very well.

Please visit and share my guitar gear & DIY Blog

Also if you want a link slapping on there shoot me a PM

He has that amp. Obviously he has a situation where a modeler will come in handy over a real amp, like recording late at night.

Not that I know of. If you find something I'd also be interested in the answer.

I've tried the Tech 21 California pedal, but it wasn't even close in my opinion.
