Guitarist Darrell Braun has been serving up blind comparisons of guitars in his videos for quite some time now.

In this new video, he compares amps, specifically a Mesa/Boogie Blue Angel tube amp and a Fender Deluxe 90 solid-state model. He also throws in S-Gear2 amp modeling software just to mix things up even further.

“Can you hear the difference between a tube amp, solid-state amp, and amp modeling software?” he asks. “Take the challenge and find out.”
