“For 11 years, Camp Jam has been enriching young lives through rock ‘n’ roll music,” said Jeff Carlisi, lead guitarist for .38 Special and Camp Jam co-founder. “I started Camp Jam with the idea that everyone needed to experience the rush of playing in a band. There's no better feeling than rocking-out onstage in a band with your friends, and in front of a real, live audience. At Camp Jam you can make that dream come true.”

Campers learn songwriting, recording, stage presence from a staff of industry professionals, Jammers will also be treated to master classes with celebrity recording artists.

Switching between contrasting reverb voices doubles the fun.

Smart, versatile, interactive and rangeful controls. Intuitive. Capable of great contrasts between A/B presets. Sturdy enclosure. Effective damping controls tame twee high-octave overtones.

Can’t switch reverb voices as you switch presets. Enclosure is big relative to depth of functionality. No-fun styling.


Fender Dual Marine Layer


Fender and reverb go together like gumbo and rice. Historically, the spring tanks in the company’s amplifiers and tube-driven outboard units have defined the Fender reverb sound. But in 2018, when Fender released the Marine Layer digital reverb, it did not include a spring reverb emulation. The new Dual Marine Layer doesn’t have a spring emulation either. Instead, it’s brimming with sounds and functions well-suited for less retro-reverb expressions, including thick chorus textures and shimmer reverb, and has a soft-relay sustain switch that enables momentary creation of ambient beds. It’s also capable of some very classy, subdued reverb colors, plus a few that can effectively stand in for spring and plate sounds in a pinch.
