Also, I saw some Microtubes Amps for like $599.
I might just get a whole freaking amp head instead of a pedal for that price.
Then I have the pedal in a head, and I con’t have to pay for the pedal and a head, so its like buy one get the other free.
Same with the Tech21 VT, they have a head for it. harder to find, but it is less then $500, so it is maybe $100 to $200 more then the pedal, another way to go.
I see pedals that are supposed to sound like amps, going for 1/2 to 3/4 the cost of the amp. so if you are gonna get an amp and want a pedal to sound like another amp, maybe just get the amp you want??
but it depends, some don’t want amps, want all DAW and IR suites.
others want computer with pedals.
Then there are me, and guys like @itsratso and some others here that want the computer stuff, the pedals, the amps, the basses, we want it all. lol
Yeah, if I were shopping a pedal like that, I might just get an amp head
cuz I keep looking for Amp heads, and I kind of want one. I don’t need it, I kind of have one, and I use my 4x10 cab and the GK Backline 250 as my desk and computer stand right now, i shit you not.
But I got this head for free basically. it works fine, but it doesn’t work fine if you know what I mean.
It works, but it doesn’t seem like I get out of it, what I should get out of it.
I think it could use a tune up, internal cleaning, possibly a coupld pots and switches replaced or tightened, or re-soldiered, etc… stuff I will never do,
it was free, its fun but if I could have bought that Carvin BX500 for under $200 last October, I would have, but I went in the hospital.
Now there is an SWR Workingman 4004 head for sale, dropped to $150.
I want it, I have all SWR workingman stuff, so it would be great, but right now, I don’t really have the cash to purchase., so… yeah.
more food for thought,
or more shit to confuse and tantalize
