thanks Andy,

but you did answer it really. It's funny but i recently compiled alot of 
tunes  for release on Bandcamp. I realized that the best (meaning my 
favorite) sounds were all direct into the board recordings. i have used 
whatever amp/speaker modelers I had in whatever fx box I was using at the 
time. All the newer stuff was done while wearing headphones in a quiet 
I arrange it so that my chain is distortion/fuzz into amp modelers 
(currently Digitech RP 250  and or Korg AX 3000G) into modfx/delay/reverb 
into loopers into sometimes more mangle fx into mixer. Not the best way 
there ya go. i stay stereo from the outputs of the multi fx boxes. i 
want a proper mixer so that i can feed more of everything into everything 
else sort of :)
All that said i still believe that a good real amp cranked up sounds 
I just can't do that anymore in real life. I guess it come down to good 
being subjective. I am always looking for "the" sound. hmmm, maybe this? 

And your right about Bill Walker! He has the "tone"!

First cup 'o coffee wearing off, gotta go get more!
