Thanks for the replies so far.

I have the floor multi FX - the RP1000. I'm happy with it. It just loses something when you plug direct into the PA vs plugging into an actual amp. I'm sure it...

There is a neat easy-to-do (even by my standards) DIY project kit you can buy called the Line2Amp. It is a reamp box and it cost me about $50 for the kit.
