Hello everyone!

I have a nylon string guitar which can be plugged in.

My girlfriend told me today that she wants to buy me an amplifier and a loop pedal (Yay!)

I have never used amps or pedals before.

Can anyone recommend me a setup suitable for a classical guitar? What do I need to know before choosing a loop pedal?

You're probably better off asking this in the Acoustic Guitar forum:
https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=27

While you're here, though, look at these Carvins:

Why, yes, I am a lawyer- thanks for asking!

Log off and play yer guitar!

Strap on, tune up, rock out!

I would look into a small portable p.a.

I like those better than acoustic amps. You can find something like that pretty cheap. Just look around on some music sites

As for loops, do you want to be able to save multiple loops? Or just loop on the fly? Do you just want a simple record/play/stop looper, or do you want to be able to manipulate the loop wit things like reversing and playing at half speed? How much can you spend?

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

Done!

And thanks for the link! Any experience with their acoustic amp?


@ibanezguitars44

For the loop I am interesting in having sevreal layers of music. The ability to switch between them and to make some of the layers less in volume (dubbing?).

Short put I want something that opens up as many possibilities as possible.

The pedal can't be more than 200$ by the way

I have been looking at the jamMan. Do you have any experience with this one?

Not personally, but a couple of guitarists I know have used Carvin acoustic amps for gigs for years. Sounded good.
