I have the original Tech21 Blonde, and it's a permanent part of my sound. I was also wondering if you'd had the one with the speaker sim switch or not. The difference for me I guess is that I'm not worried about how 'authentic' it sounds, as long as it sounds good.
And I also think it's cool if Tech21 post on here. I didn't feel it to be a sales pitch.
