    Has anyone had any recording expirience with these amps? I was given one by a buddy of mine who moved and couldn't take it with him...
    100 Watts isn't That much so im probably not going to use it at shows...

    Also, Does it record decently?
    Should I mic it or use the line out into a mixing board?

    I've recorded a bit with mine and done a few gigs using the line out. None of the recordings were anything special but the amp did ok. I've also mic'ed it for shows and it did fine. They are surprising loud.

    Mic that baby and play away! This amp has saved my rump a number of times! HANG ON TO THAT AMP! It really sounds great!

    I bought mine with the intention of it being a cool sounding (and quite cool looking!) practice amp. But I've been doing some smaller gigs lately with a singer/songwriter chick & it's perfectly suited for that.
    Also, I want to experiment with it while recording. My "big rock" project is about to lay down a couple more songs & I want to mic it & see what we come up with. I'll post results as soon as it happens.

    That amp stands as one of the most sensible purchases I have ever made...

    I will be heaps interested in hearing how this turns out dude, I need a new practice amp but was looking for something that would also work as an alternate amp for recording. This was one of the amps on the shortlist.
