This should be a fun thread! Its not a question of IF digital amps will take over, its a question of WHEN. Us photographers went thru this about 15 years ago. Digital cameras were getting really good but many purists insisted digital could never match the look of film and that digital would never take over. Sounds a lot like the arguments tube purists make today....but here we are going into 2020 and digital cameras not only match but exceed film cameras and it has taken over. So when will this happen in the music world? Vacuum tubes are ancient tech and they are getting more scarce as fewer companies are making them. Several companies have some great digital amps out now and quite a few very well known bands have switched over to them and ditched tubes altogether, especially for their touring rigs. Digital hasn't gotten too big with consumers yet because Kempers are expensive unless you are a pro, and the lower end stuff like the Mustang, Code and Katana are aimed at bedroom players. I think these new Fender Tone Master digital versions of the Deluxe Reverb and Twin Reverb are really going to start the digital craze for consumers. They are aimed at everyone from bedroom players to pros, unlike the Code or Katana, the tube versions of the Tone Master amps are iconic and they are priced where most can afford them. Unlike a Kemper or Fractal with its overwhelming amount of buttons and options, you already know how to work a DR and a Twin. I bet that if these sell well (which they will), you will soon see Marshall get into it with digital versions of the DSL and a few JCMs with attenuation, Vox does a digital AC15 and AC30 with attenuation etc....You get digital versions of the tube amps for less money, half the weight, attenuators, no tube maintenace....and digital amps take over. Im guessing within the next 3 years. What do you think?
