Last month, Indiana indie rockers Hoops stopped by Baeble HQ
ahead of the release of their latest album, Routines
, to talk about the process behind the record, live shows, and more. While we had frontman Drew Auscherman in the office, we thought we'd also ask him about his favorite piece of gear, which happened to be his Roland Jazz Chorus 77 Amplifier, for Gear Talk Tuesday.
He explained that he decided to invest in one of these bad boys after seeing the band Slowdive use a bunch of Jazz Chorus 120s. The first Roland Jazz Amp he used up until about two months ago was from 1978 and he got it from a pawn shop in rural Indiana. Just recently he bought a new one from the 80s. Dig in deeper and learn about all of the fun knobs, effects, and chorus-y things Auscherman's amp has to offer.
