Hi, This is only my second post and i hope you guys can help me. I am just getting back into playing after a few year layoff. I sold my marshall and all effects when i quit playing. I kept my guitars(luckily). I am looking into practice amps that have all the effects built in that i can also record to my computer from. I played the line 6 spyder and liked them. I have never played the behringer v ampire but i can pick one up used for around 150 in great shape. I play mostly metal and love the zaak wylde sound which i was able to get thru my marshall with an overdrive pedal. I know that these amps wont give the classic tube sound but can i get a similar sound without using any additional effects? Thanks in advance for any help.
