I've never done it before so I tried my RP80 with the headphones - it sounds way better than through my amp. The tone is so much more crunchy thick and sounds better on all the settings.

What the hell is this?

Digitech effects emulate speaker cabinets, don't they? So I don't wonder you get a good sound through your headphones. I do the same with my Vox Tonelab SE.

More crunch might actually just be more fizz. Your headphones have more frequency range than a guitar speaker.

try turning of the modeling and use it on your VJ.

Sorry for the noob question, but, if the result is as nice as I hear, why don't people just put emulated speaker cabinets through a set of good quality speakers? Is it because people claim that it sounds too digital, and loses tube 'warmth'?

Righto I'll have to give it a go tomorrow. So what do you reckon this will do?

Sound really good.

Although if you turn up your VJ there might be a chance that the natural breakup conflicts with the modeling on the pedal, so watch out for that.

Ok sweet. I don't generally turn it past breakup anyway.

I have a Bad Monkey on its way. Should sound good with the VJ?

From what I've heard about the Bad Monkey, yes. It's gotten fantastic reviews.

People do actually put the signal through a set of good quality speakers. It's called a PA. You don't have to use a guitar amp.
