***If you watch at 720p there is hardly any visible latency.***

Here is a demo of my 1986 Marshall JCM 800 2205. I have it running on Tung-Sol EL34B power tubes and NOS National Yugoslavian 12AX7A preamp tubes.

The amp settings are:
Presence @ 3:00 o'clock
Volume @ 10:00 o'clock
Bass @ 2:00 o'clock
Middle @ 12:00 o'clock
Treble @ 11:00 o'clock
Gain @ 2:00 o'clock
Reverb @ 10:00 o'clock

I am playing a 2005 Gibson Les Paul standard direct into the front of the amp (no pedals). I am only using the bridge pick-up. The amp is running into a THD Hot Plate set to -8dB with the bright switch engaged. That is running into a 2x12 Mesa Rectifier cabinet.

I mic'd the cabinet with a Shure SM57 on one speaker and a Sennheiser MD421 on the other. The mics are running into an MBox 2. Both mics are running at equal level and summed into mono.

I am playing the rhythm part of a tune that I wrote. Tuning is D-A-D-G-B-D. Enjoy!
