I recently bought a used DT25 head / cab and a hd500x. I have been fiddling with it for about a month now and came to the conclusion that the Line6 overdrive/distorting models sound bad.
I thought it was me so I bought a couple of analog pedals like a tubescreamer and distortion pedal.
Both sound superb, directly in front of the amp or in the hd500x effects loop.
If I a/b them the digitally modeled stomps sound like crap/harsh and impossible to dial in a tone.
With the analog counterparts it takes me 4 seconds to find a tone that is great.
I have 3 days to descide if I wan't to return the HD500X or not.
The problem I have is if I return it that I can't access the 30 amp models for the DT25 anymore. Its a bit of a blackmail situation.
Did anyone come to the same conclusions as I state here above?
