Ditched most of my Line 6 gear…

.., just gradually more and more disillusioned with the sounds of my Line 6 Pod X3 Pro preamp and Variax guitar.  They’re really flexible in combination and great for bedroom players and gated high-gain sounds, but no so great for the clean and lower-gain stuff I usually favour.

As the Variax has no magnetic pickups, it’s virtually noiseless, but when you go back to a real guitar through a real tube amp, you’re reminded how compressed and artificial the modelling sounds.

Not really instruments, more consumer electronics.   Ok for some, but I’m over them…
