The other guitar player in our band just can’t seem to understand tone. He was playing a Strat through Line 6 amp and was getting a thin undistinguished sound. I have been using my Tele through a Super Champ x 2 with a 12” cab. He constantly has complimented my tone. He decides to buy a new Fender Mustang. This amp sounds terrible. To make things worse there are a million possible sounds which make it difficult to consistently dial in a good sound. Am I missing something? I realize that the SC x 2 amp I use is a modeling amp but I only use the DR voiced channel which I get a great sound out of. I have yet to hear a modeling amp that sounds as good as a basic Fender amp. I also have a DRRI which is a great amp. What is the appeal of these modeling amps? The cost? Does anyone really think that they sound close to basic tube amps? Am I just an old crank?
