But analog tho.
So noisier and less versatile?
This is so accurate. I actually ran my amp into my Stomp for the first time in a while last night. It sounded great, and was nice to be able to get its broken up tone with time based effects after it, but it was WAAAAAAAAY noisier than my HX Stomp modeling. It's not a noisy amp either lol...just an amp.
It's probably all those 1's and 0's, A/D conversion, D/A conversion, and lack of toobs in my Stomp tho.
Thank you guys for all your comments and replies!
Now I've got soooo many options to check out.
You can get a passive DI box (no power) for this purpose. As long as it's a good quality DI you won't have any issues. I recommend Radial or Clarke Audio.
I've used several different digital modelers and currently using Line 6 HX stomp for that purpose but just to run my pedalboard direct instead of an amp I had good luck with Zoom Multistomp or Tech 21 California Blond -- I would recommend the Tech 21 for ease of use. I don't think I would try to record with that setup. You can get as fancy as you like but for many gigs nobody is going to tell the difference.
Get the Atomic Firebox, set it and forget. Been using that for almost a year, not a single problem, I use it as my "amp", and have another one that I use it as a 2-channel amp.
I use a torpedo cab M. Works extremely well. Kingsley Maiden BF user here.
All the suggestions here are great and I will selfishly add that Stomp was basically designed for a guy like you wanting to dip your toes in modeling, have a direct out, and a backup amp on board just in case. You can use more or less of the digital stuff as you experiment and of course you have a grab and go if you just want to jam and it fits in your gig bag.
