The G-dec is a training tool and for my learning these features are very important. I started with a 10w peavy+rhythm trainer. I do now have two other tube amps that are gig worthy and used for such. But I don't at all feel my playing would be better today if I would have started with a tone machine over the rhythm trainer.
The logic of a newby having to buy gig ready gear because someday they will want more has never made sense to me. I guess everyone that wants to buy a bicycle should get a Tour De France model? Or everyone that wants to try fishing should buy a $30k bass boat? Or if I think I'd like to try photography at 50 years old I should get a professional set up in case some day I want to be published?
