Price: Halfstack $1,500 used from pawn shop
3 Channel Head
1-Clean and Pushed mode
2-Raw,Vintage and Modern
3-yet more gain Raw,Vintage, Modern

Pros: Great distortion...no pedals needed here, lots of tonal options with different modes for each channel, great FX loop, although it is 150 watts (able to "crush your chest" low end)I can lower the volume on the FX loop to get great sounding bedroom levels!!
can use tube rectifier mode or silicone diode mode....cab has Celestion Vintage 30's

Cons: spendy...clean channel not bad but it is no Fender, butt load of tubes to replace


I love this amp...got a great deal on it...it was like brand new with inspection tags still attached.

if you have the cash it is worth it...I would like to thank the pell grant and the Oregon grant for my schooling ;)

Cool array of gear my man! I've managed to keep my GAS problem in check my not reading up on new gear and staying away from posts like this.... but I had to read up on the Triple Rec!
Seeing as you have a lot of high end gear you may as well go high end to get the tones into your pc/mac. Two nice mics, a good preamp and a nice DAW mixer (Tascam or Mackie) with pro soundcard would give you pristine quality. Think Cubase SX4 or Nuendo for pc or ProTools for Mac.
Just looking at my own set up and you are making me jealous!
