Zoom MRS8 Recorder

This is my practice amplifier at home.  It is relatively robust, I can read the display, the controls are pretty easy to manage and unlike some of the smaller platforms are not too 'iddy biddy'. The fact that it is a compact recording studio is simply a bonus.  I combine this with 'open back' headphones.
