Best Hand Held Recorder While Gigging

You know there are so many good ones to choose from so all I can do is let you know that the Roland I have been using is simple to use, has tons of features and probably sells for less than $200 in the US. One feature I like is the Automatic Record Levels when you just want to plug in & play. They make 3 models and they mostly just add additional features if you step up to the next model. I am going to take a cue from Pollyanna and let you listen to a recording made on the unit. This is from a pure jam session in the sense that we had never played all together before and essentially only had an idea what we would play 10 seconds before, so it was very spontanious. Should give you an idea of the recording quality.

This was fun as well, jam based on a Heinekin beer commercial.

I use a zoom as well with no problems. Sound quality is incredible, especially in our smallpractice space. I cannot beleive how well it sounds...
