Digging deeper into the spider using the pc app, I have noticed quite a bit more potential than I had originally thought. Thx for the comments. Very interesting. There's lots of this vs that videos on YT, just search for "Your-favorite-amp vs". Here's a couple of examples that I thought were interesting and fun. Vox vs Helix vs SpiderV vs Kemper They split on the Kemper, one picked Kemper, the other picked Vox. They thought the Helix was either the Vox or the Kemper. They thought the Vox was the SpiderV They thought the SpiderV was the Helix On the Princeton comparison : They thought the Kemper was either the SpiderV or Helix They thought the SpiderV was the Princeton They thought the Princeton was either the Helix or the SpiderV They thought the Helix was the Kemper Now, these guys don't claim to be anything other than what they are, guitar players having fun on YT, and these videos are certainly not any kind of definitive. They are, however, comparatively well recorded, and food for thought. My takeaway from these and other modeler shootouts I've seen is that a 1x12, be it FRFR or Powercab or whatever, is never gonna sound like a 4x12. Any of the current modelers can be dialed in to sound good, if not authentic. Some of the most expensive guitar-specific "FRFR" boxes sound like poop. For AITR, nothing beats an Amp In The Room. YMMV. Try before you buy. Caveat Emptor. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
