    Your amps for gigs & practice...

    Do you folks in bands use the same gear for gigs as for band practice? Or do you carry around your heavier amps at gigs only, or leave them in your practice studio? Let me know what you use for practice and gigs, I'm curious. :) Benny :mslim

    The new VOX Tonelab LE - anyone?

    Hi, Has anyone here bought or played one of these new babies yet? I can't find any around here, they're always out and/or back order. How different is it from the Tonelab LE? Do you use it for home recording and gigs? Does it sound really warm or digital? Thanks, Benny :mslim
