I have been looking to a quieter solution to my Marshall DSL40c and I planned on getting either a Boss Katana or selling my amp, buying an EVH 5153 and using the headphone jack and use it that way. Though I really do not feel like selling my amp and then spending upwards of $1000+ on gear that I really cannot experience it the way it should be. I do not plan on selling my amp either since there is no need to whatsoever. I was thinking if a Amp Simulator software would be a better option? I know that a lot of people use it and get really good sounds out of it. Though is it worth it? I am new to this stuff and don't know much about different softwares and how they work specifically. Any tips on this?
