So, I have a 50w head and 4x12 cab in an apartment, with no car, and a huge city around me. Thus, I can't play my rig at anything like a good volume, plus I can't get it around. I love this rig to death, Diezel -> Bogner, sounds incredible, but it's bugging me more and more the fact it sits unused most of the time, and isn't used to anywhere near it's potential any of the time. I mean, it really is a bit of a wrench as I love this rig, but I'm considering offloading it and picking up an Axe-FX. I mean, I'm somewhat tempted to just go with an X3 Live or something, but I don't think I could handle the come-down in terms of tonal quality, no matter how much the versatility and practicality improved. That isn't a knock on the Pod series, for what they are they're great, but it isn't gonna stand up to a Diezel/Bogner rig tonally. One side of me says that I've sold rigs I've loved before - XTC/Mark IV/Mark IIC+ - and gone on to enjoy the next one, so why the fear, but it kinda feels like a whole new world, ya know? I'm studying at GIT London at the minute so a huge, loud amp isn't a requirement, plus the fact I'm not gigging right now renders it even more... pointless. However, if I were to start gigging again soon, as I have been jamming with a drummer and bassist as late, the Axe-FX could be handy there too. And what with the large variety of styles to cover, again, it seems a plus for the Axe. Also, the recording via SPDIF is something I'd enjoy. I love jamming/writing/recording whilst sitting at the PC so that really appeals. Plus, direct to PA at a gig with a monitor behind me, in theory, should work. I mean, I dunno if it's partly ego or whatever or I'm wanting to keep my rig for the wrong reasons when it all points to letting it go for something smaller/more mobile/sounds good quieter, but as I said, it's a wrench. Opinions?
