I was wondering if anyone gave these a try i was particularly interested in the vtone guitar,which i believe is a rip off of the sanamp gt2.Its for 30 bucks so i know it wont be mind blowing ,im just looking for a pedal to use in front of my amp(solid state marhsall,yuck)maybe to get some decent lead tones as there isnt enough gain,compression for a good lead tone.Im using the seven string RG1527.I wont be using it to record or play live.I have my yamaha DG stomp for that.Oh one important thing i wont be able to try one out in person as i live all the way in ****stan and i cant seem to find any sound clips,the reviews at harmony central didnt make sense to me,some people say its the worst thing on earth and others seem to claim its better than thier tube amps(hahaha).Thanks

I used to have a real GT2 and now I use a PSA-1. I'd recommend something else. I think these are great units - probably the best modelers made. BUT they're not really meant to stick in front of an amp, and when you read poor reviews, that's often how they're being used.

Stick with a more conventional pedal if that's what you're after.

thanks for the reply jester,what pedal would you suggest,like maybe an eq pedal?.Basically i need something which would give me a good lead tone,im kinda content with the rhythm tone im getting out of the SS marshall.So youre running youre psa through a PA system?.Ive still never heard an analog modelling pedal(just digital ones which i dont like much even though they sound ok for recordings)How do you think analog modelling is different.Thanks

I think the SansAmp just "feels" a little better than my digital modelers (Yamaha DG Stomp & Behringer V-Amp2). I don't play out with electric much, so my use is mostly "in studio" use through my monitors or practicing through a PA power amp & 12" PA monitor speaker.

Have you tried a regular distortion pedal? Tube Screamer, Metal Zone, whatever - there's a lot of flavors.
