Ha ha, not sure about the good or bad guitar/amp test, but I thought the choice of music/playing style did not lend itself to a serious assessment of either. But I did not watch the whole thing, maybe it got better.
I agree with the sentiment . But not with the video comparison , That line 6 mid and brite must be almost turned off . on proper settings it would out preform the huge fender amp in everything but volume . and even then would win in sound quality with the volumes both maxed out . the fender wold sound like playing rap music in your ford pinto with loose windows .All my vid demos are done on a line 6 spider II, and it sounds great, i'll take it or the higher end line 6's over any thing fender , any day .
Just my opinion . nothing wrong with fender , i just prefer line 6 .
Don't know about the guitars featured, but the amp comparison is not fair. I have that Line 6, it's a 15 watt and sounds better than the video example. They put it against a high-end Fender tube amp that is probably 30+ watts.
Agreed , if you notice in the blown up still shot , . the line 6 is on clean channel , so either he downloaded a compressed distortion mod for that channel , , or he is running a pedal , instead of using the amps sweet distortion channel.
lol, not to mention . the treble is turned totally DOWN /OFF . :-/
Seriously , if you have to "down tone" one to make the comparison seem more drastic, (enough to notice) , then that says alot more for the line 6 in my book. rendering this comparison null and void . or if anything , states the opposite of the desired opinion sway attempt.
i still agree , better amp = better sound .
but bigger , or more expensive does not always = better .
This post has now been FEATURED! Great discovery on this vid, Rat!
A good amp with good speakers will make anything sound good.
