I am going to dive deep for this one. During the Guitar Flicks Vol. 1, Brian gives his talk the clicks on a switch to play. What switch is he using and what is it for? I have several ideas, but I am sure someone might know for sure.
Thanks,

If I'm understanding what you're on about, isn't he just turning his amp on? Every time he talks he puts the amp on standby to get rid of the unwanted hiss that the amp gives off, and obviously has to turn it back on to play again.

It sounds and looks to me, like he is using a clean/dirty switch. FOr the exact reason you pointed out. The noise comming from the amp at the volume he uses is pretty loud.

There isn't a clean/dirty switch on an Ac30

WHatever button he pushed, it makes a pretty big sound. So, if it is not a clean dirty, what could it be. I don't think that a volume pedal would make that kind of sound when activated.
