Mic it up. No one runs line out from the guitar amp. I played in a band for years, never did the venue plug into a line out or anything. They stuck a mic in front of the speaker.

I love my tweaker. It has a nice strong clean. All the custom voicings, I guess you call it, are really good, too. It makes it versatile. It's also got your effects loop.
