Been going around in circles over the last few weeks re. modelling amps, tube amps, individual pedals, mfx etc., and what combination will work best for my humble ambitions! Home-alone player, getting back into electric, just about to buy a BOSS GT-1. I've got a separate Ditto X2 looper and a Polytune 3. That'll be my set-up... with a Baja Telecaster. Simple question: when you're running a mfx into an amp, is there any point 'cork-sniffing' (which I'm prone to, illogically, because I don't record and I'm only an average player) over a small tube amp, or should I just buy something inexpensive like a Champion 40? ie. using the mfx amp/cab sims to fine tune things. I do like a 10" or 12" speaker, even at low volumes and I do like Fender - so it's either a used Bassbreaker 007/15, a used Super Champ XD/X2, or the Champion 40. Budget isn't an issue for these options. I don't like the Katana's much, btw. I won't use a 1/10th of what the GT-1 offers - mostly a little overdrive, delay and reverb. I like clean (but not ice-pick) tones and light crunch. Thanks.
