    Need some recommendations for a new modeling device that I can use for a headphone rig.

    I'd been using a Mooer GE200, which I really liked. My oldest son recently moved into his first apartment, and came by this morning. He was complaining about not having an amplifier, and I ended up giving him my GE200.

    I'm looking at the HX Stomp, but would love to hear recommendations. I'd prefer to stick with a standalone so I don't *have* to turn on my computer to use it.

    The ability to add my own IRs is very important.

    Why not just get another GE200?

    Budget is under a grand.

    What about an old gen AXE-FX, like the standard or Ultra? Is the HX Stomp going to sound better?

    The GE200 was by far the newest modeling tech I’ve used, and I’ve never had anything like an AXE-FX.

    I am really liking my Pod go, but not sure if that would fit your needs
