  1. DRRI Twin Reverb Fender Bassman PA (for acoustic).
  2. I recently purchased a Line 6 Variax 600 and Pod X3 Live. Dig 'em. I went to L6.com and downloaded Workbench, Gearbox, Monkey, drivers and Java Runtime Environment. I burned all these to cd-r and loaded them into the computer into which I'm running my signals. This computer doesn't have an internet connection. The Gearbox loaded and pulls up just fine. However, when I try to access Workbench, (one of the main reasons I bought all this stuff in the first place) all I get is an annoying 'can't find valid Java' type of message. My question is; Do I have to have an internet connection for drivers/firmware to use Workbench? I'm using an hp media center pc with a pentium 4 running at about 2.5 Ghz and 2gb of ram. Make sure you are using the JRE version of 1.5. You can download it here: http://java.sun.com/webapps/download/AutoDL?BundleId=12839 Workbench has a problem with the latest versions of the Java Runtime Environment.
  3. I just got mine this week too. You're gonna love it. $450 is a great price. The reverb is fantastic. It loves my strat too. Congrats!!
  4. Not mine, but : http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150224861639&ssPageName=ADME:B:WNARL:US:1123
  5. I use variaxes live along with the POD XT Live. There are many nay-sayers about any type of gear you can name and Line 6 seems to have more than their share. My best advise is to make up your own mind. The Variax 700 does not feel like a cheap guitar. Play one and judge for yourself. The 300 can be compared to a cheap guitar, but then again, many artists do play cheap guitars. I've used a 300 live, but I've smoothed the fret ends and done a bit of setup. It has never failed me. It is now my backup to my 700. The only thing I will tell you is if you don't like spending any time tweaking to find your sound, perhaps modelling equipment is not for you.
  6. They should spend their time and money on making valve amps So, you haven't heard . . . http://www.musiciansfriend.com/navigation?q=spider+valve
  7. http://line6.com/modelPacks/metal.html -- $49 Includes models of 17 high-gain amps.
  8. How long have you had it for ? They have it at the local store, it's not too bad for the price but I've had horror stories about it like the software being extremely unreliable and getting system errors and file not found errors rendering the unit completely useless over a matter of weeks. I assume most of these might have been problems caused by users that are not very knowledgeable but I'd have to see if those constant freezes and errors can be easily remedied through hardware resets or what not. Also the reason I need the amp is I have tried the versions at the local store. They are easy to use but just by themselves with the effects, they sound absolulely horrible and I'd really like to use it through an amp to keep the sound quality with my current gear set up. Let me know about it ! I've had no issues with it period. For what it does I like it a lot. Of course there's things I would like to change such as more memory and it would be nice if it played well with iTunes, but that is not Tascam's fault. Overall, it's become indespensible for what I do. The other comon approach is to run stuff through a pod. I did this before the trainer and it worked fine.
  9. I think he just rubs people the wrong way with some of the comments he has made about his "role"" in music. +1 My impression of him is that he's just a huge jerk. I watched as he inserted himself with some guitar legends at Crossroads a few years ago. Clapton was kinda shocked as he walked out on stage. Every interview I've seen, his website, everything just screams gigantic ego.
  10. They have a new mp3 version. It has a metronome and guitar effects built-in. It will slow things down and loop over any passage. The thing is, if you're going to use headphones, you don't need an amp. I have the bass version and it's great. I can practice anywhere and go mobile.
  11. Most of the time, I just use the ampeg model and tweak it. My needs for bass turn out to be pretty simple.
  12. I regularly run mine to a house PA and a small amp I use for monitoring.
