Same story every time. Way too much and it's all overkill. Spend thousands of dollars to just play a couple of different sounds. Sit there and scroll through presets. Realize that most of the amp models don't sound that much different. Clean tone is a clean tone, crunch is crunch, high gain is high gain. I just want a good example of each, not 100+ examples. Honestly I plugged my guitar into my interface, pulled up guitar rig 5 an opened up the first 80's shred patch and it sounded and felt more fun to me than anything I got from any of the units I mentioned, and it cost me only a couple hundred. Thing is I don't like having to turn on my PC every time I want to play. I'm pretty much at a loss. I'm losing money on returning the Axe FX 3 and am pretty bitter about it. All I want is to be inspired when I play, and keep things simple, and be happy/satisfied but I haven't found that yet. I own a roland cube 30x that is decent right now. I'm thinking of picking up a Yamaha THR10 and calling it a day. At least it can record too. The tones I have heard online, and what I remember when I tried it in person a few years ago seems to be that it sounds great. However group TGP think made me believe that I must own the best of the best.
