quote TomI have a vintage Marshal Soloist Acoustic Amp from the Nineties which is really nice, and if you can pick one up used (they aren't made anymore) I highly recommend one. I have two of them actually (lol long story) and now I just formed an acoustic duo as a side project with the female vocalist in my band and so I am letting her use one of the amps for her acoustic guitar and I use one for mine.Got a couple of quick questions about recording an electro-acoustic and amps. I'm used to playing, just not used to recording.
1) I don't normally record, but I'm looking at doing a bit of a mash-up project with a friend and need to get some stuff recorded onto my computer. I have an electro-acoustic with the lead for an amp (although I don't actually have an amp, because the only place I play in public has a PA system for me to use anyway, but I'm now thinking of investing in my own amp) and I also have a lead with an amp/guitar jack on one end and a 3.5mm headphone/microphone jack on the other end, but of course plugging the guitar directly into the computer creates a horrible sound. So what's the best way I can get a good quality recording without spending too much (aside from putting a microphone up to an amp; I'd much rather plug and record)?
2) Since I've never needed an amp before now, and I'm now looking at in investing in one. I've seen a beautiful Marshall acoustic amp that I very much desire. But at the same time I've got to think practically. I know that whilst you can use electric guitars on acoustic amps and vice versa, the sound quality isn't great because they're built specifically for either electric or acoustic guitars respectively. So I was wondering if there are amps that can kill two birds with one stone that will work perfectly well for both electric and acoustic guitars (maybe with like different modes depending on what kind of guitar you're using)? And again, if it can be used to record (i.e. hooking up to the line out or something), that would be even better because it would answer my first dilemma too.
I would say I have a budget of up to £300, so up to about $500.
I know it seems like I have no idea what I'm talking about, and you'd be right. I play. Someone else does the plugging and sound checking for me.
