A drummer friend of mine that owns a studio called me over to take a look at his POD 2.0 that his son gave him, and help him get a good sound out of it. The band that was coming in was a blues group, and the rhythm guitarist was used to playing a Jaguar through a Bassman head. I turned on the POD, selected the Bassman model, spent 30 seconds dialing the EQ knobs... And it sounded great. Not just good. Great. Exactly what the guitarist was going to need. The interface is simple, there's no deep tweaking, the effects are good enough. And it got me to thinking...here we are in 2019 arguing over why this modeler or that modeler (or profiler) "blows away" the competition, when like 20 years ago this tiny kidney bean device with such limited options gives really great recorded tone. We. Are. Spoiled.
