The main advantage of using amp modellers is having an arsenal of well-known amps from the past few decades at your fingertips, without actually having to own any of them. Having all these sounds packed into one unit not only takes up less space but is great to gig with. There are also further financial savings, as even the most expensive amp modellers are much cheaper than just one of the higher quality models that they emulate. |
Also, having a consistent set of controls laid out in front of you makes it a breeze to adjust the tone to your exact liking, without the need to spend time learning how to get the most out of your amp, or to study piles of boring manuals!
