After years of development, digital modeling technology can finally deliver tones, dynamics and feel that are almost identical to the characteristics of classic tube amps. Ironically, Roland has just introduced a modeling amp that doesn't offer any copycat emulations at all. It's a ballsy move, but Roland knows full well that its new GA Series amps can stand on their own merits instead of having to rely on "sounds-like" marketing. Eschewing the typical "collection of amps" designs that have characterized modeling amps from the beginning, Roland has taken a bold direction that combines the spirit of traditional tube amps with the benefits and versatility that make digital amps so appealing to gigging guitarists.
