I have been playing guitar for about 1 year and a half now, and my ear for tone is beginning to develop, but I haven't gotten the chance to experience this yet, so here is my question: I recognize the problem in tone of solid-state amplifiers compared with tube amps; do multi-effects processors such as the BOSS GT-8 and Tone Lab stuff strip away the soul from a guitar when run through a Tube amp?
To maintain the Tube tone, should I stick with stomp boxes etc. or will an effects processor do the same?
