Re: Tube amp worth when having a modeling proccesor?
If you play mostly at home and you like your effects, get a good modelling amp. If you get a good one, the sound of a tube amp will not be better at bedroom volumes. I doubt you hear a difference. Its more flexible and cheaper in the long run as there is no retubing, rebiasing and whatnot. Many of these amps also have a line in as well as option to record straight from the amp. I have a couple Orange Amps, Marshalls, Bogner and whatnot but play mostly a Vetta II combo at home.
