On this week’s Academy Of Tone, Thomas and Rich will look back at the 2021 NAMM Show and the Believe In Music Week! There’s a lot of new gear to talk about, stories to tell, plus we’ll have an exclusive interview about the Show with Jude Gold, Los Angeles editor of Guitar Player magazine, host of the No Guitar Is Safe podcast, guitarist in Jefferson Starship… and BluGuitar AMP1 player and endorser!
And in the second half of the show, we’ll discuss the joys of the FX Loop and Thomas will test out all the different options. Topics include:
Do I need an FX loop?
Parallel vs serial FX loops
Boost pedals in the loop as a second master volume
External preamp pedals – turning your amp into a different one!
Reverbs/delays: in front of the amp, or in the Loop?
Levels for different FX
Mixing dry and wet signals
Minus Boost and active post for a second master volume
See you there!

Jude Gold about his AMP1 Mercury Edition:
"It's a magical feeling to be able to get killer tube tone at any volume - even roaring through a 4x12 cabinet on a big stage - from an amp that easily fits on your pedalboard!"
