I want global eq, global compression, global clipping etc. I don't care whether a kt88 sounds different from an el34, I want to be able to pick and choose what characteristics I want without being limited by old technology.

I think the Yamaha is both a step in that direction, but also a nice interface in that it lets you use it just like a normal amp.

Just plug straight into a DAW and get all that in spades.

This is a hell of a lot more convenient and easier to deal with than the DAW route. That's why I got it. Sure, I can plug into my laptop or my iPad but that's dealing with interfaces and plugging into speakers and all that other shit.

Of course the DAW is gonna be a lot more capable but all I have to do is switch this bitch on and go for it. Plus, I can take it outside or to band practice if I don't feel like dealing with the entire rig. I sometimes back up a buddy of mine who sings and plays acoustic and the THR is going to be amazingly handy for those gigs, too.

That 100w version is even cooler since you can bring a speaker cab, a monitor, or just run it into the PA

What gt said.

I do regularly use a DAW to get the sound I want. But when I'm playing live I just want some knobs to turn.

Well now, ya'll just tossed a bunch of new things out there after I answered. If you had said all that I'd not have made the suggestion but I was just responding to the thought of global compression, modeling etc.

Yeah, I was just explaining why I want an actual amp that does that shit.

Taking a chance on Reverb for this mint 2014 American Standard Strat after coming up empty on Craigslist and at local guitar shops. Now the waiting game begins.

Congrats! I'm very happy with my two Reverb purchases although the shipping for the bass was a little problematic.

I first heard of Reverb through you, Pio. So I have you to potentially thank for this purchase if it all goes smoothly.

gave the Fargen Mini Plex an unthorough try. Really outstanding amp, and great at all volumes. All three channels (60's, 70's, and 80's) had something going for them, and the amp was really easy to control and manipulate. If I had the space, I'd totally get one for the apartment (I guess my only complaint: it's a big amp, very tall. I'm assuming it's like this so that it can accommodate all sorts of tube sizes).

Combo or half stack? It delivered tube overdrive at low volumes?
post #6103 of 6538
through 4x12. It has a volume and a master, so crunch at all volumes.

The Strat I ordered off Reverb just arrive this morning. It honestly looks brand new, not a ding on it and barely a scratch on the pickguard, and plays like a dream. Guess who is "working" from home today?
