Re: OT: Johnson JStation VS. Line6 Pod-what Belew uses

The Johnson amp's Belew has been seen using are basically
Digitech 2120's (internal tube and solid-state preamp) built
into a solid-state amp.  The JStation is all digitally modelled -
a completely different animal.  There are interesting reviews
of both the Pod and JStation at Sound on Sound (www.sospubs.co.uk).
I suspect Belew will sound like himself no matter what he plugs

My personal choice is a Pod + external FX -- let each
box do what it does best.  I had a Digitech 2101 for quite
a while, and though it has some great tones, I think the
Pod has the edge in that match-up.
