Check out this pedal by amt electronics. It's called the California sound. It's amazing. Before I order it has anyone played one because it sounds amazing in the vidoes and the reviews are great.

Nice sound for direct, the speaker emulation sounds good, wonder how it sounds through a good tube amp.

personally i'd get a great tube amp and forget about pedals.

You say that like the two are mutually exclusive. Most great tube amps sound great with great pedals. You have to diversify!

Bollocks! No-one's suggesting it could replace a good valve amp. And getting a 'good tube amp' doesn't mean you should forget about pedals; quite the opposite.


Obviously you don't gig much, as dual-role pedals like this can be extremely useful:

Most of the time you'd keep it on your pedalboard as normal, as a boost/drive/whatever.
But if, for example, if you blow your amp's fuse/tube at a gig the emulated speaker out seems good enough that you could plug straight into the PA for the remainder of the set.

I must admit that that youtube vid is one of the best DI'd tones I've ever heard, though I'd withhold judgement until I'd heard what it sounds like at lower gain settings.

AMT pedals are the sex! I have a DuHast and I love it. The callie pedal is even more versatile than mine but they both have the thickest, sickest natural sounding distortion of any pedal I have tried. More saturated yet more defined than a Muff. Angry tubes in a box.....kinda.

Yeah, the lead tone is good. The rhythm not so much, although it might be part because of the drums.

And no additional processing, does the pedal have built in delay? I seriously doubt the trail you hear in the end is from the rhythm guitar... Although I guess it might be.

hence the word "personally", my friend. i'm becoming more of a minimalist lately and i like the honest response of a good amp. once again, personally.

Don't worry, I see your side of the argument - after all, my current amp has a grand total of two knobs, 'Volume' and 'Tone'

I'm pretty sure I'm also going to have to order one now.

Yeah the flexwave does sound bad on it's own but with another amp on the other side of the room it sounds much better. The flexwave takes pedals niceley but the dirty and high gain and effects are crap. But I use pedals and for 200 that was a great deal
