  1. Posted 14 March 2014 - 06:28 AM I think a lot of new players are ill served by starting with this or a modeler in general. I think you need to start on the real thing and learn what the knobs and tweaks do so if and when you do move to a modeler you have a foundation from which to work. Without that, too many come to find they have no idea what they are doing with all the options available with today's gear. A good modeler can make life easier and improve workflow if you know what you are trying to do but coming into it blind its gotta be daunting. Just a thought... Yes radats, that's exactly it. I don't know what I'm doing. How could I expect an amp to do the work for me if I don't have enough experience to know what it should be doing. So with arislaf, you and tomtheguitarguy's advise, tried some amps and bought a Marshall JVM215C tube combo. My wife decided to keep the Amplifi because- it connected to her iphone playlists (just for listening to songs) blows her Bose system away. Go figure.
  2. I've been playing for three years, a rookie guitar player, and was ready to move up to another amp. I was set on either a Line 6 Spider IV 120-2x10, or the Spider Jam 75, then the GC salesman promotes the Amplifi 150 which I bought 3/5. Although now I know they are as confused as me. Admittedly being a rookie compared to all in this forum, I think that this amp is too sophisticated for me, and still has bugs, and that I'm not smart enough to know about. I want tones that are done or damn close. I don't want to play with the tones, tweak this, tweak that. This might sound stupid, but why can't the app "Shazam" the tones exactly like "Shazam" will tell you who is playing a song? it seems like every song on my playlist for practicing comes up "Twin Vibrato Clean." Then I have to mess with it. Which I don't know what I'm doing. Heck I have a hard enough time learning the song but it helps when it sound right initially. You guys with years of experience and an ear for this, open it up and adjust settings. I play basic stuff, Ramones, Nirvana, Cream, etc, and some country with basic chords. Open forum- should I stick with it or go back and get one of the Spiders? I still have a few weeks for a return. Thanks!!!
