I’ve heard Fryette, Friedman and other builders say in interviews they thought modelers have come a long way and sound great for recording but live in the room especially in the feel area.... not so much. That said... appeal to authority isn’t really a strong argument for something so subjective.I say this as someone who has had this very conversation with people like Steve Fryette, Roy Blankenship, and other tube gurus. You want to talk about confirmation bias? Dear god. Even those knuckleheads [who make great amps] think digital is "there" now!
