- i'd get an m-audio delta 44 - it's what i started with for linux and
it's been great. make sure the minor alsa driver problems with newly
manufactured delta's have been resolved - i believe they have. the 44
has four channels in/out - if you're only planning on using one or two
right now, you'll probably want more later.
that series doesn't have mic preamps, but it does have balanced
inputs. buy a cheap (50-100USD) mic preamp. buy a 58, connect it to
the interface via the preamp.
get a direct box for the guitar, or another mic&preamp to mic the amp.
i use my mixer for its preamps 'cause it also has direct outs - if it
didn't, i'd have a collection of cheap funky preamps instead.
