    ...hmm... not sure what equipment you're using, but I've owned three different Line 6 amps/basses (which I assume are "modeling" stuff) and they all were PsOS... YMMV and no offense...

    I enjoyed my Line6 LD150 for rehearsals and small gigs. Small powerful and punchy for its size. Until it suddenly stopped working one day.

    I use a Fender Studio 40. It's the bomb. Modelling amps are the future.

    I use a Roland Cube that has some supposed amp modelling, it's old tech now. I use the flat setting always, I've tried the other settings and you kind of get the vibe of a Bassman or TE but it's "almost but not exactly unlike those amps" if you know what I mean.

    I'm sure that the newer units will get a lot closer so if it works for you that's all that matters. These days for me it's an F-1X straight to the desk and IEM for monitoring, sound great and the simplest setup you could imagine.

    I have a Peavey VYPYR1 modeling amp that I use on a daily basis. It doesn't have a lot of models for bass (Peavey and Trace Elliot models) but it does fantastic for what I use it for. I think the VYPYR 2 & 3 probably have a lot more modeling capability for bass. As practice amps go, I cant find any faults with it though. Does what I need it to do.

    I just acquired a Helix and I love the flexibility this is bringing to my rig. There are plenty of amp and cabinet options for bass.

    I am using this for the first time in rehearsal soon and can't wait to see how this fits in the mix. I am playing through a Tech21 Powercube stack that I picked up at NAMM earlier this year.

    Just got rid of my Kemper. I was spending a ton of time fiddling to get not quite there. I did like it as a recording preamp for guitar.

    I enjoy my Axe FX II. Very convincing and all you need in a box. I'll see if I keep it on the long term, as I only used it a several times live.

  20. Switched to the line 6 Hx stomp early this year. The cons,.....took a good while to get to where I was really happy with my sound. The pros,..... have 3 amp models that sound GREAT at the touch of a button. And, no big heavy amp/cab to lug around anymore. I can be in my car and on the way home 15 minutes after we play our last note.
