OK so I have a Marshall vs100(valvestate) combo and a TASCAM 424mkIII and was wondering if there is a way to record direct without a DI box or record without a mic. I don't like the sound of recording my guitar into the 424.I want to get my amp sound recorded.By the by I don't have a pc.

A decent pc based recording software, and a condenser mic maybe. Thats how I get my amp sound on my recordings.

Um... well you're REALLY limiting yourself here. I guess an alternative would be to try recording into an mp3 player that's capable of such a thing, just watch your levels. No PC, no DI box, no mic, don't wanna use your TASCAM 424, wow.

I should have explained better crazy drummer,I want to record the sound I get when I play through my amp using my 424 but I don't have a di box or a mic.Is there a way to do that?Like connect the two with some patch cables somehow?My setup goes like this Fender Jaguar>EH Big Muff PI>Marshall vs100 combo then possibly>Tascam 424mkIII? I just want to put the sound of my guitar to my pedal to amp onto tape using my 424 (thats my only recorder[no mp3]).Sorry for the bad explanation.Also if I had a di box or a mic I would just use those,my predicament is I don't have those.

If your amp has an output jack, then you can run a cable from it into your Tascam. Other than that, a mic is the only other way.

Yea the line out should work.

Line out on the amp->line in on the recorder.

A mic will sound better though.

NOT THE SPEAKER OUTS INTO THE TASCAM. only the line out. even then, youre going to need cab simulation f some sorts, unless the line out on your amp already has it built in and compensated for. seriously, buy a mic.
