Re: OT: Getting that tube amp sound w/o a tube amp


That is the question of the ages.
I needed to used a RealTube preamp pedal on my single-coil strat to get it to sound thick at all. Seems like Line 6 has some decent sounding amp models--I actually had my strat into a RealTube, then into my line 6 spider amp and it sounded great.

I am looking for a way to get a nice warm tube overdrive (strat) thru my PA (bose LP1) without micing a guitar amp.  Since I loop (EDP) I don't want my guitar coming out of an amp and PA during the recording phase and then only out of the PA in the looping phase.  

Any ideas on how I can get a nice tone from my Strat w/o micing a nice tube amp?  do I need a tube preamp?  My tube screamer sounds great into a tube amp, but sounds really ratty through the PA.  Is there a PA screamer?
