What's that sound?
There, off in the distance.... It's getting closer......
Why, it's a good, ol' fashion bandwagon, just waiting to be hopped on!
After years of not being able to play my electric guitar with any decent amplification due to apartment life, I finally gave in and bought something to try to both alleviate my amp problems and kick me toward writing/recording an album (after delaying it... about 15 years. So, almost as long as Drew).
Note: I've had the MOTU for years; it wasn't part of my splurging.
Unfortunately, this all but certainly means I have to give up my prized Triple Rectifier. I wanted to take a picture of them together, but it's best that they not get to know each other. It'll just make putting the Old Girl down even harder. Man, trading tubes for a computer... Fuckin' eh.
I will say this, though - from my initial tests, the Axe sure can sound nice when recorded direct, and I know that I haven't even begun to scratch the surface of what it's capable of.
You might even say that it's a Big Story.
