sounds great man. did you mic it for the recording or go direct in?? what do you have in the loop?I've recorded one demo with mine - go to http://www.myspace.com/drewpeterson7 and listen to "Windowpane demo." That entire thing was the Tech-21 in Brit, with a slight mid scoop and attenuation of the highs on the rhythm tracks, and everything flat for the leads, with the gain halfway up or so in the middle gain mode.
Not necessarily true. Watt for watt it doesn't matter if it is tube or solid state. However, watts aren't necessarily measured the same from company to company, so a 100 Watt isn't necessarily quite equivalent to 100 Watts from someone else.I think if you want to go the solid state route you'll need a bit more in the wattage department. I've got a Kustom KGA65 65 watt solid state amp that is capable of playing with drums and bass without the need to be mic'd up. Sounds pretty good for a solid state amp too.
+1 on either of these, The Valvetronix and Roland Cube are absolutely fantastic for an affordable SS amp!Man the Cube 60 has enough to do what you want and they're cheap, or the VOX adt line are cheap and have some 50-100 watters. All of these amps sound pretty darn good.
