I think my Ampero is a very very competent modeler (at its price point) and for a small home studio. It’s strong points are it’s small footprint, it’s XTOMP library is exemplary, it’s CDCM & F.I.R.E. modeling system equate to extreme realism; and, it’s well built. It ain’t flimsy.
The negatives I find are the touch screen can be a bit twitchy, I find myself using the scroll wheel most of the time. The menus system could be improved., be patient, it will become second nature. Though I’d never use it in a live gig (although it’s not really intended to be a live gig modeler) given it lacks in I/O and switching capabilities. In addition, I find the reverbs to be a bit thin. But overall, I give it an A- as a home studio modeler. You did make the right choice in comparison to the Moeer GE200. I have that one too. Although the Mooer was cheaper, it’s realism does not meet the level of the Ampero. You get what one pays for. I say you chose well. Be sure to download the Celestion Speaker IR’s, a huge tonal upgrade.
Not familiar with this unit. One thing about which I am curious ...
Is Hotone short for Hot One or for Ho Tone?
According to one video I saw (I'm also unfamiliar with this unit), the reviewer called it "the Hot Tone Ampero". Methinks there is an attempted play on words here, via an obvious spelling not-quite-an error.
