Hi Justin! I know you re a real gadget expert especially old gear so I thought I could ask you for help - I came across this interesting piece http://www.joness.com/gr300/SIP-301.htm have you used this and what do you think? Infact I was thinking to use it both as a DI for PA and preamp for my amp (via fx return or maybe even input) for live gigs. Ofcourse I would give it a try for recording,but how about gigs? Ofcourse, all TBers are more than welcome to chime in as usual Thanx guys!!!
