"I have been using the zoom h4n 299.00
Acoustic guitar mag had an article a few months back
comparing several and this had everything on my list + 3 I didn't think of
I had the chance to sit and listen to the Kruger Brother in NC

"Thanks guys. I have a Tascam device that I use to loop tracks, slow tracks, etc. I'm looking to record myself and listen back to what I sound like in a jam setting. Any ideas on that? I'm leaning toward a Presonus firewire audio interface…"
I have both a Zoom H2 and a Tascam GT-1. Neither are very expensive and both create good quality recordings from their built-in microphones. I've fooled around more with the Tascam for practice because it will allow you to loop, change…"

"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
