pros & cons on amp vs multi efx for live gigs
by bklixuz on 2013-01-25 07:11:28

hello everyone!

im on a tough decision here on what i should get for live gigs.

my band plays metal.

if you where in my situation, what are your pros and cons on an amp or multi efx as your tone for gigs whereas amp is a line 6 spider IV 30/75watts and the multi efx as xt/x3 live?

my decision will be based on your opinions. thanks in advance everyone!

Does your band mic all the amps into the PA system?  If not, I doubt the 75 would be loud enough for you, and the 30 definitely will not be.  If you use a POD, you still need an amp, right?  If you're always using the PA system for volume, what about during rehearsals, or playing at home?  An amp gives you some flexibility this way that the POD does not.

Are you equally happy with the tones from either choice?
