Re: Modeling Amps

I currently use the POD 2, a Boss VF-1(main rack) and a Boss GX700(backup
and live rack). What I found for me to be the best is the POD in parallel
with the VF-1 (I use this setup mainly for recording). I love the dynamics
of the POD, and the sounds I usually use on it (I don't use no preset 
the ones I have programmed for it) sound really much like the originals. 
VF-1 isn't that bad alone, but it is way less dynamic than the POD. 
using them in parallel can give a very full tone. I have a Laney LC15R, 
had a Marshall JCM800 and currently have used a Fender The Twin and a 70's
Fender Silver Reverb, and I must say that for me the Pod comes pretty close
(even more if you use it on a valve power-amp). I'm looking forward to try
the Vox Valvetronix that is going to arrive to the musical instrument shop 
work now.
Have tried the DG-Stomp, and I like it, too, but I prefer the POD.
