RE: Modeling Amps

I've used a Tech21 Trademark 60 for awhile- great amp- though can be a
little noisy- they also have a 120 watt 2x12- my current fav is the
Tech21 Tri AC stomp box- sounds great- simple to use- 3 presets- you set
the knobs then double click the switch and it is set.

  Though not an amp, the Boss GT-6 works really well with my Steinberger
GL-2-T.   I'd set up a Brian May patch from Killer Queen, since I like
tone quite alot, and last weekend, when playing with Brother Synch, or
least two brothers from said arrangement, lol!  Bret said, "Hey!, -it's
Brian May!" -without my saying anything about the patch.  
  Anyway, I've tried the POD, Line-6 Veta, the Vox, the VGA-7, the GT-3,
Digitech RP-2000, VG-8, and VG-88, and actually prefer the 6 since it
the most like a tube so far, in one pedal  board processor.  I've not
either the Fender Cybertwin or the Marshall Modeling amp, and would like
to, but really would like a nice light little floor processor so I can
carry it and go direct so am really happy with the 6.  In addition to
Vox AC-30 Brian May idea, I was able to get very close to a Fender
whose clean tone I really like.  
  Anyway, it also has some very musical synth tones which I also like,
very nice effects, so depending on your tastes, it might be something
trying.  -just my thoughts.  -Best of luck...
