Hey, just wondering how much better a Vetta II would sound over a Spider III. Also, how good are the built in effects? Do the amp models of the ENGL Powerball, Peavey 5150 II, and Mesa/Boogie Triple Rectifier sound fairly close to the originals?

well, it's one of the better modeling amps on the market
haven't had the pleasure of jamming on one myself though so I can't account for the accuracy of the models

most models are meh in terms of accuracy, but in their own right they're not bad at all, and infinitely better than the spider III

This.


The only thing comparable to a Vetta in terms of modeling power is an Axe-FX rack unit.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

whoa, slow down a sec... the vetta II is very good. very. but the axe-fx is in a class of its own. it's models respond in ways previously unthinkable. in fact, i'll go so far as to say the next gen of modelers will be based on A-FX software technology... maybe hardware too. that thing's got a lot of torque.

^ I think he was more saying that the only thing better you can buy in terms of modeling is the Axe-FX. For the new price, this isn't really much of a step up in cost and is definitely worth the extra money; but if you're buying new, the Vetta is ~half the price of the Axe. Though of course, there are also amps like the H&K Zentera, Johnson Millenniums, etc. that are also great options.


The models on the Vetta share some of the qualities of the amps they model; in high gain models such as the Rectos, it's hard to model an amp with solid state technology that can dial in the sag of that amp, but other qualities of it are kept (big sound, large lowend, etc). When recorded though, it can come very close to the sounds found on the albums of your favorite bands.

The lower gain/mid gain amps are much closer to the actual amps, because it's easier to replicate those types of sounds on a SS amp. However, the models don't have the dynamics of the amps they replicate, for this the Axe-FX is the only choice, it sounds and behaves like a tube amp like no other SS amp can.

As far as the Vetta goes though, it will be a HUGE improvement over a Line 6 Spider and I'd suggest you pick one up used, because you can find them price very low (I got my combo for $350 - though I wouldn't expect to find one that cheap ).

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
