    I have a Boss Acoustic Singer Live 40w and use it all the time for playing out small gigs, I connect the DI outs to a Behringer mixer board to powered speakers if it is a medium area gig. I also use it to connect to my Focusrite Scarlett interface to do Zoom open mics here at TAC. I will put the link to the latest post so you can see how it sounds.

      Appreciate your responding Omar! I have enjoyed seeing your Play for Us forum videos. One of my TAC goals this quarter is to post three videos. Done 2 with the third in the works. Just getting the playing and singing at the same time has been work and learning the YouTube channel steps is still cumbersome for me as I am very much a novice to TAC and the guitar. Beyond Tony’s instruction in the DCs and skill courses I do find the information provided in forums beneficial. Thank you for being there (here) Omar. I hope to venture into VOM at some point this year to get to meet you directly.

    Wow, @Guitargeezer ; that looks like a very feature packed amp. And I have talked to @Omar_A.H. and listened to him play on many VOMs. If he uses it for his live gigs and his Zoom VOMs, then it is indeed a great product.

    I have a small amp and I have owned several. I also have enough equipment to do home recording. I don’t have the money or the interest at this time to want one of these, but I am very impressed with what it does. If I had known about this amp when I was putting my system together, I would very possibly own this little dynamo.

    If you end up getting one, I would love to know what you think.

      Thanks Mike for your thoughts on this small but mighty amp. The looper and harmony features interest me to avoid pedals- I adhere to the KISS principle when I can. The reviews are very positive on the online music websites although one thought the looper was time limited. Thanks again for being an interested and active forum user. I have not ventured into VOM as I just recently posted two actual “play for us” videos. Getting the recording from my Apple phone to my HP all in one using the YouTube channel has been an adventure but figuring it out as I go along. 🤔 Very pleased Omar responded too. It’s good to hear from more experienced individuals as I am not quite 6 months into TAC and just a novice. I do have the motivation to put the work and time required to become better.

        Hey @Guitargeezer ;

        I loved the old TAC forum platform. I don’t see any reason why this forum couldn’t be just as amazing. The transition and then the slow load speeds and finally the length of time to fix the issues put a real dent into the amount the forum was used. Many people, including myself, just gave up. The question I had to ask myself was, am I going to get back up or was the time I used to spend on the forums just wasted time and not worth it? The answer is: here I am putting in my time and effort to contribute to this forum.

        As far as the amp:

        I gotta tell you, I bought a really good looper; one of the best. It turns out that you really don’t need much from a looper which is why so many very basic and inexpensive loopers are still sold. The second thing is that even if you do want to do more with a looper, it’s strongly suggested to keep it simple at the beginning to learn how to use a looper. So a simple looper function coming with this amp is all a plus; no down side to it.

        My amp can do many of the things this amp can do as far as effects, but I’d have to spend as much or more than my amp cost me to get a pedal that functions with it. My looper is a pedal, but amp effects I would have to change manually which means I couldn’t do it during a song without buy the add-on pedal. This amp has it’s own pedal. Some of the best pedals and loopers are made by Boss. I just think the features you get in this thing greatly simplifies the equipment you need all the way up to doing live, professional gigs as Omar does.

        Anyway, thanks for the ongoing conversation. I love it.

        MG 😀

        Thanks for your comments Mike. Years ago I bought a Boss Looper for my daughter (my son in law uses it now). There is a used but “like new” Boss amp I am looking at for about one hundred less than usual cost. Early Christmas? If I get it I will let you know if it lives up to the hype. Jack

        Yes, I would like that Jack ( @Guitargeezer ). In fact, I’d love to mess around with it myself if (when) I get over to your place to jam with you.

        P.S. I didn’t get a notification for this comment. I’m not sure why. I came by just to see if there was any update. You can “tag” me by using the “@” symbol and my “nickname”, “MikeGaurnier”, as I have done above for you. That way you know the person gets a notification that you have made a comment to them. 😉
