Re: Ping: 2 Amps in a Guitar Looping Setup?


i've done almost this exact set-up ( but it was almost ten years ago). i
used a mesa boogie studio preamp into a music man amp fx return and a 
it worked pretty well but you'll spend a lot of time getting the gain
structures right. i remember doing a lot of balancing to get all the amps
and effects to see the correct levels. i also used a morley active A/B/Y 
so that i could use either or both at the same time. my experience was that
it did work, but it wasn;t worth the hours and hassles...

 but it may do the trick for you..
