Fender Valve Amp vs Virtual Amp Sim

►► Download your FREE “Home Studio Gear Guide” →

With so many great sounding virtual guitar amps on the market today (both software plugins and hardware outboard units) a question I see a lot is “do they sound professional enough to use in my song productions?”

Or should you just stick with mic’ing up real guitar amps?

Well today I wanted to to let YOU HEAR the difference between a mic’d up Fender valve amp and a virtual amp emulation of an old Fender tube amp.

I also give you my thoughts and how I like to approach tracking guitars.

Can you tell the difference between the amp sim and the real thing??
