Garage Band had the few effects I use for bass: gain, 3 knob EQ, stereo chorus and reverb.
Sounded very good, no preamp.
I just wanted to find out if I could play and record without disturbing my neighbor.
As for guitar, looks like I have some good options I should try. No tremolo but I can just use a pedal for that. :wink:
Very cool, if I don't have to have a snake pit of mic and amp cables everywhere! 8)
As for drums, yes I intended to use those options, but I still need to set up 4 mics into a mixing board, so yeah, it'll be a snake pit for recording drums. :?

Seems to me if I had one I'd run through all the models and settings and find the ones I liked and use them. It really is subjective. BUT the reason you may want to care about the "old amp sound" is that it gives you something to shoot for. Those guys who defined the electric Chicago sound- from the original Sonny Boy Williamson to Paul Butterfield to Tad Robinson, can teach us something about delicious tone.

Vintage amps are definitely available. I just got a Silvertone 1482 in very good shape for just over $250. I sold my old one, in not great shape cosmetically, for $200. On fleabay I see the same amp in not as good a shape going for $400 and more.

Jeff also makes a good point about microphones. Not to mention effects pedals. These are all variable which give a different character to one's sound and tone.

As for harp, it's gong to be a longer road back, I'm afraid. I used to carry one with me in the '80's when drove truck for a bakery (Yes, I "hauled buns") and the trips were typically 9-12 hours. I was hoping it would come back relatively easily, but that's not he case so far.

Every mic reacts differently to any circuitry. A mic will not sound the same thru a modelling circuit as it will thru the amp the circuit's named for. Guitars are a different matter.

Because they're trying to sell those to people, who've never heard, heard of, or owned those old timey amps.
I've never owned any of those amps, why should we care what they used to sound like 40 years ago?
They don't make them anymore, and the reproductions made of them are way too pricey.

However, having many different tones in one amp is valid, but referencing the antique amps in their menu, what does that mean to us today?
What will those references mean to people in 10 years? :roll:
