Aye, it's just for a bit of craic really, my boss wants to record some Irish trad stuff (he'S got a great voice for it) so he said he'll buy the yoke and all, and I'll be able to hang on to it, so why not.
I have the boss br532 which is an older similar model but its only 4 track playback and its dead on. The only downer is the small 128mb flash card, always have to back it up on to pc, but that one has a USB port for direct transfer so thats even better and its 8 track playback. If your boss is paying for it even better I'd say go for it.
