Re: My obnoxious looping tale...

I absoulutely love my boomerang man and I am sending my second brand new 
backup Boomerang for some
repairs to get repaired.  I go into a Ultrasonic Acoustic Amp with my 
handmade original designed
guitar I built and other classical/flamenco/acousic guitars.  Believe it 
or not this amp is
incredible and can even handly distorted electric guitar signals that are 
not overly pushing a
signal!  The range of the "overrated on purpose speaker" Greg 
Farris(Designer/technician) at UJC
Electronics is astounding with a beefy little piezo built right into 
through the center mounted
cone.  It also has effects send and return which has much better 
practicality in use with the
boomerangs and effect processors.  I have one amp for the left channel and 
one amp for the right
channel for a very rich soundfield for classy presentations in my 
www.myspace.com/albertiniguitarworks and Albertini Projects/Eagle 
Dawn/Trainwreck Society, etc.
etc.  I hope you enjoy what you hear and my information about my setup is 
helpful?  Stay in touch
if at all possible with us :o)
