I've been going through all the IP310 talk here for, let me thing....FOREVER! I've wanted one of these since I first read about them back in 2006. Just never pulled the trigger because of cost, a slight aversion to the weight, and other things. Well, I ordered one last week and it should be here tomorrow. For a preamp to startoff, I went with what most people seem to advise using which is the Summit Audio TD-100 with the Berg mod. I'll also be trying various other preamps with it down the road. I'm going to keep my eye out for a Kern IP-777 which so many have raved about. For the time being, I'll also play around a few floor pedals I own, including a Sadowsky and a Sansamp BDDI. I also have a Tone Hammer en route which I have very high hopes for. I'll probably run this through the TD-100 as well just to add a bit more warmth and get the gain matching right on the backend. I'm also very excited to try running the FX Send off my TC RH450 into the IP310. I'm just excited to finally have one of these altogether. Anyway, the cab won't be here until tomorrow, and it seems interest in the IP310 has fallen considerably compared to the IP112, so perhaps this is all old news, and I'm so late to the party that there is no one still around here to party with. Anyone care to celebrate with me over the next few days? I'm hoping it just all works out great, but I have a plethora of things I will probably need to ask. A big part of what's driving this is I really want to start noodling with studio quality preamps more. The IP310 will (hopefully) provide me a baseline for doing that.
