Aiken GoldBrick Speaker Emulating Direct Box (cabinet simulation filter), $85

Official GoldBrick page - "The GoldBrick direct box acts as a microphone eliminator, allowing you to connect your guitar amplifier directly to a mixing console. It faithfully reproduces the tone of a miked speaker cabinet without the problems associated with the use of microphones. Connects directly in line between the output of the amplifier and the speakers. This is the only way to faithfully capture the real tone of a tube guitar amplifier. The guitar amplifier interacts with the speakers, which shapes the tone and provides a major portion of the "feel" of the amplifier. Standard preamp line outputs do not capture this interaction, it can only be obtained from the actual speaker signal."
