I heard Bob Mould from Husker Du/Sugar used to record all his guitars through a series of super small amps. Not sure if that's true or just a rumor.
Not sure really... some old phono amp from the pre-stereo days called a Boulevard. It's got treble, bass, volume, and input select knobs, with two 12AX7s and two EL84s for amplification. Besides the magnetic, ceramic, RIAA, flat, old LP, tuner, and aux RCA inputs, it's got one marked hi impedence output which handles gtr pre outputs nicely.
As it happens, Grant Hart's booking agent gave it to me along with the little red Marshall 1x10 for driving up to help him out on a tracking session while I was on vacation. Actually, everything in that picture was given to me, including the LittleLabs re-amp box driving the rig, thanks to the GS giveaway contest and the winning answer - Michael Wagener. It seems all guitar amp threads lead back to Michael Wagener...
