I don't know about the line 6 amps. Never played on one. If possible I would go try them both out at a music store and then decide which one you like better.

dbx 266xl dual channel stereo coupling compressor/gate. Its a rack unit. Costs a little more than a pedal but worth the extra $60.00

First I would call Carvin 800 854-2235 and ask if it's cool to use a step down transformer and what one do they reccomend. Check these out for reference.

I didn't know they still made them. I have one that's atleast 10 years old and it served its purpose as a versatile amp good for low practice volumes and loud enough to jam with a drummer without using a PA, but then I got a Legacy, now the Bandit collects dust over in the corner....Not a bad solid ...

The first is know your instrument! In order to have a good idea of what to play, you needs to know what you're playing...namely the notes: what notes a major scale consists of; what notes a minor scale consists of; and how they relate to one another. And just simply "know" all the notes on the neck...

If there is a web-site that could help me, please post it. Sounds like you really want to understand how to play the guitar. There are many ways to get started as all the previous posts suggest. For me learning how to really understand what I'm doing on the guitar has been a frustrating experience ...

I found this instructional CD. It has been very helpful in getting started with really understanding how to play the guitar and writing music as well. It starts with beginner stuff and then takes you all the way through to modulation. It covers playing lead guitar, scales, modes, chords, progression...

Thanks. Hey, I was wrong in thinking the SM57 was all I needed. I had to also purchase a mixer with some mic preamps and also got a M-Audio 1010LT PCI interface. I've never done anything like this before so learning how to use the stuff especially the mixer with all its aux in and outs and subgroups...

U think the full stack of Legacy is a little over the top? Whether its over the top or not I think will depend on your situation. I don't think having an additional speaker cabinet is over the top. If your doing home recording, the Legacy might be to loud for you depending on your situation. I was ...

I have a Legacy Half Stack. Because it is so loud I had to get a power attenuator to do some home recordings. The attenuator changed the sound of the amp for the worse. After that I got a digitech multi effects processor with a master volume knob. Now I can crank the amp up to about 6 and control th...

Hi Roger. I plugged the amp into a different dedicated outlet instead of a shared power strip and the hum has dimished to the point where it is undetectable in the recording when playing. Prior to that the amp was picking up a lot of interference even a radio station was coming through it. Not sure ...
