BSByrdman Posted October 13, 2022 Share Posted October 13, 2022 Good day! Long time since I have been here. Looking at a 2x12 200w Cat to buy between now and the end of the year. I'm pretty familiar with Line 6 and had a Duoverb and Flextone III in the early/mid 2000's and looking to get back into amp modeling for practice and the occasional gig using FS presets & effects. Obviously, I think I need to buy the amp, play with it a little then decide what additional accessories will be needed, but I have a few questions in the meantime to cut down on the rabbit-hole research activities. I play some alternative 80's & 90's stuff along with other classic rock/grunge/etc, so more than one effect will be needed at a time to be accessed by FS's, so I was thinking about combining this amp with either the HX Effects + additional midi FS, Stomp + additional midi FS, or Stomp XL. Questions: Does anyone use the Cat with the HX's listed above and can give a bullet-point +/-'s of using it like this for what I want to do? Are additional amp modeling with Stomp & XL really needed with this amp? If not, can an HX Effects with a midi FS for effects and presets work well? Should a POD Go be a consideration? Any other options I should be looking at? I have about $1200 budget to buy what I need for a one and done setup so Helix is out of the question even though I know this would probably be the best route. Plus, I don't want to be stuck with wasted $$ on a ton of gear that collects dust. Thanks!! Byrdman Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
