I'd like to see a comparison of this vs. J-Station. The branding is different; Johnson J-Station vs. DigiTech Genesis3.
Why "3"? I suggest:
1 = Line 6 POD
2 = Johnson J-Station
3 = DigiTech Genesis 3
Though more historically fair might be
1 = Tech21 SansAmp, or DigiTech 2101, or DigiTech RP100.
I believe DOD, DigiTech, and Johnson are 3 names for the same company.
