The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

nano tube rules, the mini Marshall and most mini amps suck big time

Go with the micro cube, great amp, compact, battery operation, portable, sounds great...

I have the Fender Tonemaster Mini from MF...i think it has some ok cleans but the distortion and OD sux...
it does get nice and loud for a tiny amp though but the tiny speakers are just the worst which is why I built a small 2 x 6 cab and added a speaker output on the amp.

This is a file containing a chart to follow the MP3 file which is the mini fender I recorded with a Shure SM57 off axis in my studio:


Use winRAR to unzip the files.
File 1 is an MP3
file 2 is a Microsoft word document

if you want a clean or OD tone you can always build a Ruby amp in a small box and use it like a pocket pod...haha

yea man definatly the microcube you can get lots of different sounds out of it including blues metal rock jazz acoustic and a whoel lotta other ****
i haven't tried alot of mini amps, but from my experience MS2> the fender mini amps. the MS-1 can get a bit muddy, but it isn't too horrible.

and he's talking about the 9 volt mini amps, not actual amps so to speak

I once got shocked by a spider amp.

I got powers like spiderman did, except I model everyone else's powers poorly.
