Okay, I had my HPD-15 show up in the mail today. I must admit, coming from a predominently acoustic background I am a little intimidated. I am digesting the manual, attending the NAMM show on Thurs. for tips and I'll let you know how it goes. Meanwhile, if anyone has input as to there experience with this thing I would sure like to hear about it. Incidently, I am anticipating a great deal on some Vs at the convention. Stay tuned and thanks in advance.
