You checked this one?
I've been curious about these units ever since the first one came out and this newer, modern-voiced version has got me seriously rethinking my live rig. I love my Helix floor but hot damn, it's hard to deny how efficient and powerful this little bastard seems.
If anyone in the Vancouver, BC or Seattle, WA area happens to pick one of these up please drop me a line--I'd love to buy you lunch in exchange for a chance to test it out.
These come out today, no? I would love to pick one of these up. Sweetwater says they dont have it yet on their page. Lemme check Thomann.......yep says they have it in stock, and it's for $699 as opposed to the $849 on sweetwater.
Let me guess.....Thomann won't ship it to the states...? I tried calling and they are on a bank holiday
$699 from thomann seems an absolute steal for this brutal little fucker.
God damn i havent wanted something this bad since i grabbed my Kemper!!
Just tried to buy on from Thomann, Bluguitar prevented Thomann to sell and ship these to the states. that means I gotta pay an extra $150 elsewhere for no good reason. When and IF someone else even carries them because right now sweetwater doesn't have them.
Why would he do that?
Or has he made some exclusivity type deals with USA dealers?
Either way what a bummer for you man. :/
This would’ve been it for me if they had a loop switch instead of reverb.
Sadly, I think this is true.
Have you seen he is releasing a matching Pedal 1 or something that stores presets etc. That MAY include a looper. No idea. Look into it though in case bro
Got an fx loop and even a power soak switch but no looper
Fx loop not looper sorry should be more specific
Ah well bingo. You could pair these 2 together and job done
This does have an FX loop, if that's what your question is...
To fully specify what I meant was I wish that the foot switch on the right was not for reverb but in fact to activate the fx loop. I see it does have an fx loop, and that the addition footswitch activates it.
Yeah but now I'm getting addicted to delay and reverb pedals, lol.
Sweetwater will sometimes discount prices if you call in and make an order.
I think @lewis is talking about a loop switcher. You have to get the extension module for that, but it can be done.
There are some better, more cost-effective and compact solutions for MIDI controller/loop switchers around, but that's just personal opinion. This would be more specifically tailored for the Amp1.
Even if you aren't performing live, I think this amp will be a great option for home players because the amp is ultimately solid state and should sound better at lower volumes. (Even has power soak option with MIDI).
Ah I see what you mean.
Yeah that kinda kills my buzz slightly now. But only slightly. It's not necessarily a deal breaker because if delay (or chorus) is all you would need, then just step on the delay/chorus pedal.
Really that is good to know! Is that only because you mention another deal from elsewhere that they would do that for competition?
They will usually price match, or match a coupon if you ask nicely. I usually get some freebies or a discount if I'm spending a lot of money. But I really wouldn't expect them to price match on a deal you can't even get because of your location.
You can add one with any MIDI controller using the MIDI adapter. Just send CC 40 to toggle loop on/off.
Here's some extra things the unit can do: https://www.bluguitar.com/me-expert.html
True. I was also thinking that.
