Here's a today photo of my 2nd board with Plethora integrated. Everything is up front >>> Mesa Boogie TA-15 so I've set this up to go right to left Wah > Fulldrive 3 > Crunchbox OD/dist > Sentry Noise Gate > HoF Reverb > Helix Phaser > Viscous Vibe > HG Compressor > EQ > Flashback >>> TA-15 Mesa TA-15 then has 5 footswitchable tube amp voices being... Vox Normal, Vox Top Boost, Fender Tweed, Marshall Lead, Boogie Lead. Amp also does 5, 15 and 25 watts. So with one small board and one tube amp weighing 12 pounds I've got a super versatile rig that sounds better than any digital modeler, is more convenient plug n play, minimal tweaking required and cost US$1500 total. The amp and pedal board combined weighs 24 pounds - add on a 1 x 12 cab is another 25 pounds. My no 1 board is plugged to a Mesa Mark V 25, weighs the same and is even more versatile. With either of my 2 Mesa amps I could easy strip this down for gigging with just the Plethora and amp, or amp, Flashback and tuner. That's why I don't agree that modelers are more convenient, versatile and lighter weight than tube rigs.
