Supposing you found a great patch for a Katana on Tone Exchange, and you wanted to convert it to your GT-1000 or GX-100, which AIRD amps sound the closest to the ones in the Katana?

CLEAN -> NATURAL.  I've seen people argue for JC-120, but I think the JC sounds brittle/crisp in comparison.
CRUNCH -> TWEED COMBO.   I was skeptical about this, but after doing an a/b of that vs the sneaky version, I think they may have a point.
LEAD -> ???        I've seen a lot of people say this is based on a Marshall, but AIRD has the BRIT STACK, SUPREME, and MAXIMUM which are based on Marshalls to some degree or other.
BROWN -> ???       A lot of people seem to think this is a rectifier, but I'm skeptical


I don't think there is much comparison between the amp models.
You can select similar amps but they will sound very different.
Even if both units are based loosely on the GT-100, both evolution paths are polar opposites.
Always remember that you are absolutely unique. Just like everyone else.
