    Re: cybertwin amps

    I have a good friend who I used to be in a band with who has one. I jammed on it for a little while. It's a pretty nice modeling amp, and its got some good tones in it, but it's not for me.
    My friend is really happy with it, and that's all that matters there.

      I tried a cyber champ in a shop once and I didn't like it at all. I really don't like modeling amps much period because they just don't have much soul, I can't really describe it but the whole experience of using a digital amp just isn't as fulfilling as using a normal amplifier even if the tones are great. It just seems too impersonal to me but some people must like them.

        I really think you can get modeling amps that are just as good for a lot less cash. Plus from what I've seen it's too complicated of a layout. I don't mind modeling amps because as the technology grows they're getting better. It's a matter of preference.

          Try some Vox stuff. It'll change your mind in a hurry.

            I've had one for about 4 years now and I'm love/hate with it. Mostly love, but a bit-o-hate. It does a great job on modelling the other Fender amps, but I really struggle getting a full, smooth, fat distortion. I place my buddy's Shiva as a reference point for rich smooth gain, and although there is NO comparison between the two, my CT cannot even get close.

            However, I'm usually playing a clean/mildly overdriven setting with my tele and it suits me fine for that. So I'm not really out all that much most of the time.

            The reverb, delay/echo and trem effects are nice-the phaser and flanger kinda get fizzy.

            Would I buy another one? Tough call-it's mostly an all in one amp, but there are times I'd love a small, portable tube amp like a Rohr or Rambler. Other days, I plug in and think, "damn, that's not too shabby!"

            I'd get jack nothin' for trade/resale so I'll keep it and plan on adding a cool little amp to my collection later.

            PM me if you have any specific questions.

              Try the Vox VTX 60 or 120 series....I have the VTX 120 head and I Love it.....I also have the first series Fender Cyber Twin that does great clean Fender stuff...The Vox beats the CT out for grinding british tones though..

                I paid a grand for the cybertwin now I'm giving it away for $700 I hope, the remainder will be saved toward a Carr or Victoria or pay off the elitist 335 purchase (changed pups) just after purchase
                I'm thinking of getting a Carr-Mercury I've read that it delivers great sustain at low practice volumes, which is all I do any way, I don't gig and really nobody to jam with around here anyway. or maybe a Victoria. I tried a Carr rambler at Gryphon Music it was real nice to my ears.

                  Gary Hoey used a CyberTwin in his clinic here in Manila. That CyberTwin is awesome for a modeling amp.

                  I'm yet to hear a line6 at more than "guitarstore-testing-volume" level though

                    I feel very fortunate that I own both the first series Cyber Twin and the Vox Valvetronix 120 watt stereo head.... I can sure cover alot with these 2 amps!
