Re: Downsizing advice

I'm going into this process and looking at it as sort of a restart so pairing down to the bare min is kind of an idea that I really like right now. Going to a small interface and computer instead of a console is gonna allow your set up to be much smaller and more portable. Having 1 or 2 high qualit...

Re: Downsizing advice

it's kinda hard to answer without knowing what you primarily use your gear for... that said - anything that hasn't been touched in a year is on the chopping block around here. better to have 5 things you use ALL THE TIME than 15 that barely get used ever , that you could borrow or rent if needed at ...

Re: Latest Gear You've Un-Acquired....

i'm moving on some pedals i just never use and a guitar that hardly gets touched... to hopefully fund a few boutique pedals that will get used.

Re: DI bass and guitar

Also - i tried the stereo cable thing - still NADA. Starting to wonder if part of the circuit or jack is busted :roll:

Re: DI bass and guitar

I'll cut a board to seal the cab - thanks for that. I like having the heads on this side of the glass :) One thing to look out for on various fliptop Ampegs is that they often have some means of keeping the amp in standby if there's no speaker connected. I remember one that had a four-pin XLR to th...

Re: DI bass and guitar

That Ext Amp jack is a bit odd - certainly when seen from the perspective of today, with our TRS "insert points" that are an input and an output hidden on one plug. That Ext Amp isn't one of those. It's just a point in the heart of that circuit between the preamp and power amp. If you plug into it,...

Re: DI bass and guitar

My tech is saying that I only need a stereo cable to connect to the EXT AMP out and then one of the L or R will provide the connection at the other end.

Re: DI bass and guitar

i think mine is early 70's. It's a higher wattage version than the B15n. no dip switches. 2 channels. looks like this: https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.reverb.com%2Fimage%2Fupload%2Fs--1hKFXFjg--%2Fa_exif%2Cc_limit%2Ce_unsharp_mask%3A80%2Cf_auto%2Cfl_progressive%2Cg_south%2C...

Re: DI bass and guitar

further investigation finds that i get no output to speaker if I have a cable plugged in to EXT AMP....

I'm using a patch chord - does it need to be a balanced cable?

Re: DI bass and guitar

I double checked that it was the correct output - i was patched into the DI in of a preamp in and saw no input level of any kind.. My B15 is the later era B15s - i wonder if it has a change in the circuitry or design?

Re: DI bass and guitar

i'm trying out this EXT amp output and its not feeding anything out of it...I have a dummy load on the speaker cable but I am getting nada - doesn't matter whether it's on standby or not either.

What am I doing wrong?

Re: DI bass and guitar

awesome - I'm gonna try this soon! side note - Do you think it affects the sound coming out of the speakers a lot to not have the head on top (thus making it a "closed" cab)? I've had the head off the cab for the past 6 years and it seems to work fine.... btw mine used to be a lot rattlier too but i...

Re: DI bass and guitar

It's pretty good but I think the B15 pre-amp is where the real mojo is in that chain. Between the two I'm able to flip switches and turn knobs in real time until I get what I want. It's a godsend when I'm mixing other people's DI bass tracks too. hey Dave - any tips on how to use a B15 head in this...
