I've recently been selling some old gear and purchasing used gear on craigslist. This adventure led me to picking up a mint Vox Tonelab SE(the old one with two expression pedals) and a mint Tech 21 Power Engine 60. I've only had them together for a few days, but they have both been fantastic so far. The PE has volume for days and is very transparent (with option to add color if needed). The Tonelab has exceeded my expectations in a modeling/effects board. I was able to quickly set up a few patches to mimic my previous stomp box/tube amp rig. The only difference is that the possibilities are endless. The reverb and delay options are stellar, from subtle to over-the-top. I started guitar with a SS amp and now I'm back to another. I'm really loving the flexibility of modeling with the potential for more volume than any valve amp I've ever owned. Plus, the tone from all of the models sound very tube like, dynamic, and touch sensitive. To say the least, I'm more than pleased and I'm happy to veer away from the instability of gigging with tubes.
