    You have to be real careful in the setup. To get the right gain there is a combination of a 3 position switch (gross) and a rotary knob (fine) for adjusting the gain. If you are not careful in the set up the 'rang can get really noisey. A litle bit of patience in the setup goes a LOOOOONG way.

    That being said, I think it is suited for live performance more so than studio work.

    Finally, IT IS A WONDERFUL TOOL. I cannot express enough how much my own playing has advanced because of it. I also see it in my students who have them. They progress a lot quicker


    ps I have had some problems with noise in the rang that was taken care of with a good cleaning. Once a year I have an electronics guy remove the chips and op-amps and really clean and de-oxify them.
