S-Gear or...

Anyone out there using Scuffham Amps S-Gear and Amplitube?
I'm mainly interested in vintage sounds.
My main guitar set up (in the real world) involves Telecasters, a Casino, vintage blackface Fender Tremolux, a Roland RE 301 Space Echo and a few Strymon pedals.
I've just downloaded the 15 day S-Gear trial and plan to give it a whirl over the weekend.
(I know this will be a compromise because nothing can replace my set-up - just looking for an alternative for situations when I can't crank my amp etc.)
Thanks in advance, Joe.

Here for the gear
 

Its a bit expensive, but if you like the Bassman sound, Bassdude by Brainworx is ridiculously good. I have an actual Bassman from that era and it sounds just like that. Good thing with that amp is it is pretty transparent in terms of bringing out a guitars unique tones rather than pushing a certain sound on you.

The brainworx amps are excellent.

Note that having a good reverb plug is crucial for vintage tones.

I've now tried both S-Gear and Amplitube and to my ear Scuffham S-Gear is way more usable and feels better when playing.

If you use the IRs from Celestion both sims will sound better. I always ended up using the Orange AD30 in Amplitube and my own effects in front and delay plugins after. It’s the only one I like and versatile. SGear is just harder to dial in but can sound good too.
