 I don't think I'm appreciated by all, Graeme, but thanks all the same!Frustratingly, the Laney website keeps freezing and we ended up with the manual for the old 1A in my last post. I've now managed to pull up the right manual for the...

More detailed technical specifications are often given in user manuals which are usually downloadable from manufacturers' websites. Here's a link to the one for the Laney A1, scroll down to p.15:-"HiZ Instrument Input (40mV 27dBu,...

Hopefully Omeagerman can answer a question for me (or anyone if they have the answer). I have looked at a Laney A1+ amp in the South of the Island ( where there is much more choice !!). The guys in the shop didnt know much about it but...

Re: Need advice on Shure 57/X2u combo vs Apogee MiC (reply)
Shure's recommendations are pretty spot on. There are those of us who think that the SM 57 should never ever be used on a guitar unless at a distance. There are many better choices. I like the SM57 on my voice (live only); hate it on...

Here's a comparison of a Shure SM58, which is quite similar to an SM57, with a Shure KSM141 condenser: SM58KSM141These are uncompressed 16/44.1 WAV files so they won't stream well, download them to listen locally. To my ear the...

I would do some research and see how much you want to spend on an interface. There are lots out there in all price ranges from Presonus, Focusrite and Apogee that will work and give you an excellent quality. You already have a MacBook so...
