My new amp came this week. It's a Ibanez TSA15H, a 15-watt tube amp with a "tube screamer" distortion circuit built-in. Wired up to my speakers it sounds really great, particularly the clean sounds - lots of dynamics. With the tube screamer section on, it also sounds pretty nice, perhaps a bit better than the GSP2101.
But really, the whole idea of getting the Ibanez was to have a simpler, less technical setup that sounds like a more typical guitar amp. Probably just a simple delay or reverb stomp box will fill it out.
Sparkles is a big tube amp fan. He loves the warm sound. Well, really he just likes the warm spot.
