    Thanks for the warm welcome!

    The truth is, the LT25 arrived only yesterday and my Squier CV 70s Strat a day earlier. Before that I had nothing - that's how much of a newbie I am! So I'm afraid I can't give any comparisons. Due to the lockdown situation I wasn't even able to go and audition any gear in stores, but I spent 2 whole weeks doing a lot of online research before deciding what to buy.

    Nevertheless in the short amount of time I've been playing with the LT25, I am really pleased that I chose it as my first amp. To me it seems ideal for beginner practice sessions at home - it has more than enough power (though I'm trying not to annoy the neighbours!), it's incredibly versatile with its numerous modelling presets, and to my untrained ear it sounds really great!

    Sorry I can't elaborate any further, this is all very new to me!

    everyones first amp should be a modeling amp
    so you can find the "Real Amp" that suits your playing

    I like the Fender Twin cleans

    some like overdriven 5150 style amps

    some like Marshals

    my friend likes Vox

    all sound very different

    and all are available on a modeling amp
    ok most are

    Sure, with the lockdown I have plenty of time to experiment with the numerous models on the LT25. But I know I also need to invest time actually learning how to play, because at the moment it takes me way too long to find the correct finger positions to play anything!

    ROFLCOPTER! I’ve been playing nearly thirty years and am in the same situation.

    Well, this is an amp that gets on a lot of 'best of' lists. When I was learning, I wish I had something like this.

    This amp addresses every shortcoming of my first amplifier, and that’s just for starters. If I’d had one of these at sixteen, I might have spent more time playing and less time trying to get my amp to sound better. It’s a shame Fender doesn’t make it in a 2x12.

    And that's why I chose it! During my 2 weeks of pre-purchase research, the LT25 kept coming up as highly recommended for practising beginners. Given its compact size combined with great versatility at a very reasonable price, it just struck me as the ideal choice.

    The ability to fully manage the LT25 with Fender Tone on my computer was also a very appealing feature. I briefly considered the Marshall Code 25 - by all accounts another great yet sensibly priced modelling amp. But Marshall's Gateway app works only on smartphones via Bluetooth, and I'm really not a fan of phone apps and small screens. I'm very old school, I like cables and computers! (The first computer I ever used looked like something from a 1960s James Bond movie, but that's a whole other story... )

    Basically the LT25 looked like my best option, and now that I have it I've no doubt I made the right choice.

    Modeling shines at the lower and higher end of the spectrum. It makes small amps sound better and do more things, than the typical SS amps of the past 40 years. At the high end, they can model things with eerie accuracy.

    Today I installed Fender Tone on my laptop and bought a 3-meter micro USB cable. I updated the firmware and played with the presets a little. Everything is fully toward.

    Glad to hear you got it working well with Fender Tone. I like how you were looking for an amp for a friend and managed to buy one of these for yourself!

    This amp just happened to be a really good fit for me. I got to play it in a store before things shut down, and I really liked the sound. My friend ended up going with a small amp that sounds really good and can use rechargeable batteries.

    Good to know! As you have far more experience than I do, I'm now even more certain that I made the right choice!
