On another note, did you see where Ibanez came out with a 5w combo tube amp with the tube screamer overdrive circuit built in and an 8 inch Celestion speaker, for just $249 retail. First chance I get I'm going to go and give it a try at GC. It would make a perfect recording amp for a home studio at that wattage.
I haven't seen those Ibanez yet, sounds cool. I have two of their TS7 pedals, dirt cheap and they sound great! I also used a TS sim in my chain, and a LOT of EQ cutting to get some of the fizziness of the amp sim out of there.

I hate to say it, but I'm finally going to sell my tube amp (6505) and stick with the new POD. I just can't crank the amp as loud as I need it that often anymore, and micing it is a pain. I have the old PodFarm sims, but the new HD just owns it. (After much tweakage!)
