right, im thinking of selling my boss gt-5 to upgrade to a vox tonelab se. I use a peavey bandit 112 and was wondering if it was worth doing?

i just need someones opinion really.

Id consider that a downgrade but whatever makes you happy.(asuming youve actually played the vox)

You could get $1000 custom made pickups hand wired with Eric Johnsons pubic hair, and they'd still sound pretty bad through a ****ty solid state practice amp.

the boss is more versatile and natural sounding.
I do love the tonelab but its a bit over-rated.

My opinion is keep the GT-5. Get individual distortion pedals and put them in the send/recv loop. Use the pedals instead of COSM and distortion stompbox modeling. And use the other FX (delay, reverb, chorus, wah, phase, etc....) from the GT-5. If you get a tube amp with FX loop then you can use the 4CM to put the amp's preamp in the GT-5 send/recv loop, along with any distortion pedals you want.

IMO you will like that better than the modeling in the Tonelab.

You could sell the GT5 and upgrade to the GT10...... THAT WOULD be an upgrade.

Your crappy amp achieved a purposely crappy tone? I'll alert the presses.

Here's a link demoing the Hafler T3. Not my video, but I watched it after I saw the T3 pop up on Craigslist. I picked it up for $115.

With a setup like this you get the benefits of using individual pedals along with being able to use all the time/mod/filter fx in the GT-5. Another benefit is that the FX loop is fully buffered and less subject to tone loss and noise than a straight up pedals only layout.
