Anyone hear or tried this thing? And what's a nanotube?

Of course, a good guitarist can make most any rig sound ok.

I am always looking out for grab and go rigs. MIght be a bit too grab and go.

I played several years ago with a guy who used a big all in one Pod board into powered speaker cabs Interesting rig to mess with (stomp this pedal, toggle up, and 'instant Hendrix,') but sounded pretty weak in band/live situations. No guts or dynamics. He put a lot more money into rack stuff, power conditioner/tube powered sound boost/etc. His rig was, in the end, far bigger and more pricey than my pair of amps and simple pedal board. And his sound was just getting there, barely. Still, I always find these tiny amps interesting. The generic Marshall crunch sound these little amps aspire to does tend to get a bit tiring though.

I was thinking along the same lines w/r to responsiveness and cost after upgrades. Def would want a hands on demo sesion. I bit on a Line6 Spyder after hearing a pro demo...it never satisfied. To be fair it was the bottom of the line. 'twas a good day when it sold. The back is complaining so i'm still looking for a light ss amp for carting to rehearsals. Shows get real iron and toobs.
