Boss MK2 100 vs Fender Mustang GTX100
« on: May 04, 2021, 06:51:15 pm »
Am considering these two amps, and I have question regarding looping capabilities

Per this video (https://youtu.be/tHgJq3n7Kz8) at about the 14:25 mark of the video the man starts to talk about looping capability of the Boss.  He demonstrates the fact that the Boss has the capability to play a loop with one tone setting, and then play over the the top of the loop with a different tone setting.

I have done quite a bit of research into whether or not the Fender GTX100 can also handle looping in the same manner, but have gotten 2 or 3 varying opinions as whether or not it can. 
I have not found any videos demonstrating that it can either.

So I'm hoping one of your out there can provide a definitive answer on this one.

Thank You! 8)

OK, so you are, specifically, talking about using an external looper pedal connected to the amp's "FX loop".

Yes, the GTX100 does have an FX loop which you can use with an external looper pedal. I'm not sure to what degree you can change the position of this in the effect chain like you can with the Katana, which may impact some of the capabilities.

But the GTX100 also has a a basic onboard looper. It's only 60 seconds, but that's enough for most purposes.

Cheers,

Keith

As demonstrated here. Looks a whole lot easier having it onboard, unlike my Mustang III that needs and external looper. I would imagine the GTX would require similar set up.





Keith, as to position its fixed on the Mustang as per the attached diagram. GTX likely to be the same.

None of this may help Freehockey though !
