    I'll try. After tweaking it some more I'm finding the amp sounds are good, but the fx are hard to dial in - reverb and delay especially. It was probably Jeff - he used to own one before he jeffed it.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm yet to find a modeller that sounds as good as my mark iv, and most cannot do a decent mark series tone for to save their lives.

    But as Lozek said, besides cool factor, I can't be arsed anymore.
    I DOEN A BAD MURDA.

    Tube amps are big, need space, that's the impractical part. That and the expense of a switching system.

    Otherwise, I love having amps these days as opposed to a modeler. Tweaking is fun. Plus, useful in winter when the heating breaks.

    I just didn't get on with the kemper i borrowed, and should really sell the axe fx2 and buy a sansamp or something for bass

    You forgot they are LOUD and you can't use them in apartments.
    Unless you go through a lined loadbox with IRs.
    Then you might as well be using moderlers/Kemper anyway

    Another drawback, in case you dont have super perfect electricity in your house, they can change tone in different weathers / time of day / depending on what other powersoaking stuff is going on around the house.
    Yeah, my Engl E530 sounded different from day to day (brighter one day, darker one day) and I got sick of it and got myself a Kemper instead finally for everyday consistency

    Best thing for bass these days is the HX Stomp IMO. If I wasn't getting one of those, I'd be getting a Darkglass X Ultra.

    This used to drive me insane! Get a great sound set up, take my stuff to where we would play.... sounds flat... go somewhere else.. ground noise.. back to jam room, back to normal. A electrician friend pointed out that voltage from area to area may change and some buildings have spotty grounds etc. I think it mattered a bit more back when a high gain ampp was a Marshall with a OD out front.
