Well how were you plugging your guitar in before? If you were dealing with latency then you'll still have to deal with it if you're using a mic instead. There are settings you can use that can help...

Air Classics are pretty good. As I recall they've got a slight mid scoop to them which might make harmonics more difficult. I've had some pretty good luck with both the Fred and the Liquifier in the...

Whipped!

If looks matter the best option is to redo the Tolex and the Grille or order custom. Mesa has a really nice range of custom options, although they're fairly expensive.

A low wattage amp with high headroom is basically an oxymoron. Simply doesn't exist unless you're playing solid state. Basically what I'm saying is that unless you're...

Opinions on the LTD Deluxe EC-1000?

So I've been offered one of these guitars as an even trade for my Mesa 4x12 slant cab and I was wondering what the general consensus on these were.

I agree with Robb on this one. A Vypyr 60 would be worth the upgrade but the 30 just isn't enough of an improvement over a Spider to be worth the cash it would cost to switch over.

Retro Channel RR1. You should be able to find a used one on ebay for roughly $500 bucks. You'd need a speaker cab too, but it's by far the best solid state amp I've ever heard.
