I started to believe in my living room all these GDEC modeling things were possible with the output into another amp/cab for live tone, and I tried hard, but the modeling preamp requires more of a QSC K-12 FR speaker then a mac/cab to sound more like the BF amp at low volumes. Still, that wouldn't do either for me. Now I use it to practice. Thats it. The dream of a GDEC rig was squashed trying to play it at gigs and failing, albeit on a personal tonal level. The crowd didn't really notice or care. I am only happy with SMS/Mac/Cab for live tone.
It still nails tone out of its 10" (gdec 30) speaker and horn. Delays envelope filter, looper/tracks, distortions, modulations etc all built in, no need to get the pedals out to practice.
Blues jr is a great amp. I like the 6l6 tone a little more, but the Bjr is a killer
I have fallen in love with the HRD III. I am thinking of selling my 65 RI twin all waldo modded for an even trade ($650). Too bad GC and the like wanna give $300 for it. They are insane. I would keep it for that!
