as much as I love my JTM 45, it's not the most home friendly amp. Even with the Attenuator it's still too loud to use for recording.
So I picked up one of these...


It's a bit of a Swiss Army knife. You can use it as a headphone practice tool, a usb interface for recording, run it in your amp fx loop to give some valve goodness, a re-amp tool and a drive pedal. Only played it through headphones so far, but it's pretty fucking good. You can get the whole cleaning up with the volume pot that a lot of software/digital solutions I've tried seem to fall short. It takes pedals amazingly. And when you record into your DAW it records a dry and a effected signal so you can re-amp etc later.

Yes doog, and it's dam good at it too. I've tended to use this a
Lot more than rigging up the Marshall at home. The eq is fixed by preset buttons, but nothing to stop you whacking an eq or something in your daw.

Putting together the clues (corporate proxy won't let me see the pics) I gather that's the Laney IRT-Pulse Ironheart USB Tube Preamp.

It's is nickS. Well worth the dollar and quite useful to stick in my gigbag instead of a spare amp.

oddly enough, the NAMM demo was slightly less annoying.
