Re: OT: GP-100 v Line 6

Well, I've never tried either of those units, so I cant't help you there. 
But, there are several things you could do about amplifying the GP-100. 
The easiest to carry would be a "mini PA combo amp"; i.e. an acoustic 
guitar amplifier or a keyboard amp. There are lots of these out there. My 
favorite would have to be the Fender SFX acoustic and keyboard amps. There 
are also powered PA speakers out now by JBL and Mackie. 

You could also buy a power amp and some speakers. You could get guitar or 
PA speakers. Or, you could get a powered mixer. It doesn't really matter. 
If you are using to GP-100 direct and just want something to amplify the 
sound your getting with it, pretty much anything in the way of PA 
equipment would probably work. Any amp with the words "keyboard" or 
"acoustic" used to describe them could also work, as well.

Now, I have a question for you. I have been looking at the GP-100 to use 
purely as an effects processor for the guitar. I can't find any info about 
the GP-100 being used like this and was wondering if you would answer some 
questions of mine aobut it (off the list, of course)? Thanks. 

Over and out.

Ben Porter.
