Ah, couldn't attach two mp3s, so here's the second version.

Hey, Dick!

I've had a go at recording my song The Revelation of St. John. I'm not really pleased with the results, I need a decent mic. Maybe Father Christmas will get my wish list, and hopefully I've been good enough. As per usual, I got a little carried away and added a couple of layers of guitar and messed with my voice. I'll attach (if it works) two versions. The first is the more busy recording, and the second is the stripped down version. Take your pick which one you'd like to use.

See ya

I have two other amps. A MicroCube (£23 on rBay - very convenient and amazing for the size) and a Vox vt40+ (and an amp made from a 50s HMV radio). The Kustom cost £25 inc shipping on eBay. It really does depend on the pickup and what you want to get out of it. Sadly, none of these is perfect for everything. Funnily enough I think the little Roland is maybe the most versatile. I would say don't take anyones advice. Try some and take a good selection of instruments to try too.

All the best.

Hi there.

I am in Denham, which is about where the M40 meets the M25 (and what a recipe for disaster that could be ;-) Where you at Boxstock?

All the best.
