So I picked up one of these amp modelers recently on the bay. It does exactly what I expected it to do (I bought it to practice in my apartment and also to be able to record stuff straight to my computer so that I could write parts easier), however after fixing my combo amp I really dont need this anymore plus I am going to buy a slightly more expensive digital recorder with XLR mic inputs for the recording i think and could use this cash towards that)

This unit is very similar to the Line 6 Pod setups but is a better price and I personally enjoy it a lot more than the lower end line 6s that would be closest in price (but still a lot more expensive)

-24 choices of amp models, bass amp models, and acoustic guitar models. 30 user presets or create 30 of your very own
-18 different speaker cabinet models to mix and match with the amp models
-built in noise supressor and built in compressor
-a slew of completely editable effects (with tap tempo where applicable)
-S/PDIF digital output make it ready to record in the digital domain.
-headphone jack
-standard instrument cable inputs and outputs
-can be used purely as an amp modeler and run into an amp/speakers or used connect directly to a computer for recording purposes.
-built in tuner
-several tone and pre and post volume/gain knobs
-MIDI in/out

Power Supply and Original manual included. The ONLY flaw my unit has is that the top of the preset knob arrived broken from the original shipment, however, this has not effected my use of that knob. (It still turns and changes the preset and might be able to be glued on unnoticeable even).

Average selling price Ive seen on **** including shipping is $85-100 with one getting snagged for $67 (without a power supply though I think) and some going for as much as $125. I live in greenville, sc but I could ship this as needed.

Picture of the same model (not of my unit specifically though)

You got a build date on your J-Station? The earlier ones supposedly sound better than the later-made ones. Got mine, and earlier one, new, in 1999. Great piece of gear, and still use it, to this day, each time I play out.
