I made this demo of "Rude Mood" with a Tele with EMG-T's, direct with a Behringer GDI21 (which was about $30 brand new). For anyone thinking about getting one (or a Sansamp GT2), I think it's a pretty good purchase.
Weird choice of gear, I know, but I'm pretty happy with the resulting tone. I love analog DI devices and may build some of the cab sims from Runoffgroove.
Reverb added in Logic.
