Never had one, but I see a lot of them on craigslist. Don't know what that's supposed to mean.

And yeah, 7 and 15 watts can be real loud.

Interesting. I wouldn't mind having a few more channels of Input. Maybe another firepod or other presonus equivalent is next. I'm recording in a basement(mostly to totally unfinished) so fixing up the room is sort of out of the question for now. I'm just kind of unsure as where to go next gear wise....

pre upgrade for firepod or what?

I currently recording with a presonus firepod and oktava -mk-012 x2 oktava -mk219 x2 mxl v69me mxl 990 a 57 and a kick mic that I can't think of. I've seen a presonus m80 and am thinking that upgrading the pres might be helpful. Is this upgrade worth it? Or what would be the next step in the equatio...

I had one other break on me. One of the wires inside had broken off from it's joint. It was an easy fix. The hardest part was opening up the capsule. Thanks to tapeOp, I learned that you screw the screws inwards to take the mic apart.
Find a friend who knows how to solder and open that thing up!

Not that it matters because I like this a lot

Anyone who spends over $1 on a computer these days is nuts. Pickup a refurb G4 on ebay for $100 or less. Upgrade the processor with an OWC 2.0 Ghz dual for $500+. Second drive, 160 GB Seagate ATA for $49 Then you're up and running. Isn't 100+500+49 = $649 more than $1? kilo bucks are the new dollars.

Tascam 388

As much as I hate to say it, I think it's time to get rid of this one. I got it from a local music store a few years back. It was gone through by a tech at that time. I've definitely used it since then, but it has sat for long periods of time too. Anyway, everything is functional, pretty clean unit,...

Didn't slow Jimi Hendrix down. Lots of blues guys wrapped their thumbs too.
Personally, playing the guitar is art, and with art, you can't let people box you in by saying not to do something. Learn both ways and use whatever method works for what you're playing.

go see Kottke live, his between songs banter is worth the price of admission.
Get 6 and 12 string guitar, then go get some John Fahey.

If you know who he is, then you should watch this show.
It's some of him playing but mostly it's him talking about what music means to him, the differences between genres of music, and how corporations have ruined the world.
I think Bill Hicks would love a couple of his comments.

Brozman

I saw this over on another message board and thought some of you might enjoy it.
It's French music TV show featuring Bob Brozman.

Bob has an interesting take on music in today's world as well as the connection between feelings and music.
