I'm getting back to playing, after selling all my gear like a retard. I Have narrowed it down to a few choices. I play mostly high gain stuff but sometimes I like to play some crunch/classic rock kinda stuff or maybe I will play some blues but 95% of the time it is metal. I have played modeling amps mostly and I have noticed that low volume sounds better, just seems to my ears. It is like I can hear more detail. I mean i like to turn it up some like when i'm jamming out but not where you have to scream ya know......anyway here are the finalists....
1. Yamaha THRX (the high gain one)
2. Vox VTX Valvetronix (This is the new one, soon to be available in the next week or so.)
3. Line 6 Pod - With a single studio monitor. ( this would be like the old Desktop/Bean Pod) ..... have to stay in my budget
I do not have a guitarcenter or a guitar shop near me that has these to try out so thats why im relying on you guys to help me choose
I've personally always found it hard to get the sound I was after on the Line 6 Pod. I have no experience with the Yamaha but IMO, the Valvetronix is a safe bet. I've had a VT30 for a few years and it's always been solid and it's great for playing around with loads of different sounds. The presets nail a whole bunch of different sounds and you can do pretty much anything with it. Great practice amp.
