UA Dream '65 vs Real Amp - Are tube amps still better?

Can an amp sim pedal replace your amp? In this video, I'll go over the pros and cons of each -- I'll also compare the tones of the Universal Audio Dream '65 Reverb pedal with my Dr. Z EZG-50 amp. The goal of this video is to help you make a more informed decision when you're ready to buy your next amp or amp simulator pedal. It's important to remember that there is no "right answer" here and it ultimately comes down to your personal guitar-playing preferences and circumstances.
