A modeling amp is an amp that models the tones of other amps.

A Tubescreamer is an OD pedal by Ibanez.

you mean the difference between a Solid State amplifier and a Valve (Tube) amp...


all it really comes down to is that tube amps are better (dont tell me otherwise, i'm not listening) yet more expensive... but soooooooo worth it

A modeling amp is an amp that models the tones of other amps, using solid state transistors, except in the case of hybrids, like a vox valvetronix which uses 1 12ax7 tube in the preamp.

A tube amp uses tubes in the pre and power amp, creating a pure, warm, and delicious analog tone.

Solid state - diodes clip to create distortion while the rest of the circuit shapes the gain
Modeler - a program models what the guitar would sound like after gain using algorythms.
Tube - clips vaccum tubes to create distortion, vaccum tubes used in all gain stages

Yup. Just remember that in life every question is always black and white. No ifs ands or buts. And don't forget to not listen to any argument or test it out yourself, no, every question is black and white.
