Thanks for all of your suggestions. I ended up getting a *gasp* Rogue practice amp. It's a little 30w dude with the only thing I needed ... a line out for direct recording. It costed me like $75 or so including shipping so I was cool there. I am so surprised there aren't more "lunch box" practice amps with line outs. It would be so useful. I suppose one could modify thier little squiers and whatnot... all you need is to tap the signal before the power amp stage right? I guess I wasn't ready to drop $300 to $500 for the luxury of a small amp with a line out. So now I have a Rogue 30w 10" spkr to suppliment my Cyclops 15 and 8s. Wowsers!!
