    Does the FM9 devalue the FM3 on the used market?

    Only to a point. It depends on your own needs. I honestly have no need for the FM9 right now. Did that keep me from going on the waitlist? Of course not! Am I overly concerned about getting "enough" for my barely used FM3? Not really.

    Anything by Maven Peal or Emery Sound. Great amps. Best combo amp ever, the JCA GR 1.6. Would love a model of that, with all the settings. I'm happy with my ADA Rocket A10, even though I'm still trying to sell it.

    I use the Zoom AC-3 at the church where I work. That is excellent. I'm currently using a Taylor 814CE DLX, but trying to switch to a Kiesel Zeus acoustic (portability, simplicity, less of a liability). Problem is, the electronics arrived producing distortion (after extensive troubleshooting).
