Default Electrics and Bose S1ís

SonnyBoy called from St. Louis this morning and said ďreally love the Bose setup with acoustic 6 and 12 strings and the cello thru the DI box sounds beautiful, but I canít get anything acceptable for electrics. I hate having to lug more stuff to shows. Any ideasĒ he says.
Who better than you cool cats to ask for suggestions on how to dial in a good electric sound thru the Bose S1ís.
He plays an American deluxe Tele and a Les Paull studio.
Any ideas.
Thanks, frankie

You might also check out the v2.0 FlyRigs - I'm a lifelong hardcore tube-amp guy, but I just may get one to keep in my accessories bag for when Murphy and his seven leprechaun brothers decide to drop in to the gig...

A tube head with a line out.

The line out on the Vox MV heads is stellar and sounds just like the amp through a cab. They aren't cheap but not expensive either. Despite the super-gainy and unflattering sound bites of the Rock head online, it does beautiful warm cleans all the way to Classic Rock crunch.

I haven't tried the Micro Terror line out yet.

I also own a FlyRig but the pedal I put on my pedalboard is the Tech 21 Blonde Deluxe private stock. You may want to check it out on their website. (My board has a ToneDexter also).

Thank you cool cats! I have passed on all the SansAmp info to SonnyBoy, and as anyone who has children will tell you, he will figure it out himself anyway, I am sure. Oh well, we try.
Thank you again for your responses.

I would look into a Bose T4 mixer. It connects to the S1, contains electric modeling and is probably more gig friendly switching in/out sets of presets.

Really? I can't find any electric modeling features on the T4 anywhere.

Any electric preamp that includes speaker emulation. Many have been mentioned already. There's lots more out there. Mine is a tube preamp by Blackstar.

I've been running my Archtop's Johnny Smith floating pup through an old Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive that I had kicking around. Direct into my L1C or through the T1 mixer, it really fattens things up and puts a little hair on the sound depending on how you use the blend knob. It also sounds really good with lots of gain through one of the line inputs on channel 4 of the T1, leaving all three of the xlr inputs available for mic's. I would imagine you could get similar results with it through your S1.

I had a chance to try one of those flyrigs and I really liked the small size and sounds it produced. I may get one for my own Bose S1 rig
