I always wonder a bit when I read the back and forth on how good/not good the UA is at getting thundering Marshall tones at bedroom levels. I wonder because in my world it's so much more about being able to get great Marshall roar in a band situation without crazy volume levels. I first found out about the unit when I read about some very cool players who were using it on the road with their 50 watt Marshalls. I looked at it only in a band context. Anyways. I don't play out anymore but have lots of jams over at my house and I've found the UA to be fantastic with my band. Even taming down my 100 watt SuperLead gives me huge, wonderful tone. To me, it's a life changer. Yes the Marshalls make a nice clean platform for pedals but it doesn't compare to having both channels on 7. I keep 2 overdrives on my board just from habit but it's all guitar and amp. Those vintage Marshalls have the grandest tone I've ever heard. I'd be interested to hear stories of folks who use the UA in a band setting, especially where it has now enabled them to change how they use their big amps on stage. Are folks starting to rethink those 100 watters that kinda sat around before?
