Can I run a cable from the XLR out on my Zoom B3 to the input on my amp?
And if so, what sort of cable would I need to do this? I have a PF500 if that matters
Just a standard XLR to 1/4" jack cable would do the trick. You should be able to get one from any music store.
I could be wrong, but I have a feeling it's only the clean signal that is sent through the XLR out on a B3.
Can't recall 100% at the moment.
you need one of these guys:
here is why:
an xlr cable is a balanced cable, that means three pin: hot, cold, and ground. the first pin is your ground, the second passes your signal, and the third passes your signal with the phase reversed. which gives you common mode rejection when the phase is switched on the negative later on. an instrument cable (1/4 inch) on the other hand has two poles: hot and ground. all you need to do is have a cable with xlr on one end and 1/4 inch TS on the other side. send xlr pole one to sleeve of TS, send pole 2 to tip of TS, and lastly send Pole 3 to sleeve of the TS. this still leaves you with a problem: XLR outs tend to be low Z (Z means impedance), your amp wants High Z. so you need to convert the signal to a high impedance signal. those converter transformers do that.
What are you trying to achieve that the left(mono) output doesn't do? If you want to bypass the 500's pre just use the 1/4"out from left(mono) out to the power amp in on the back. The only issue with this is the volume control would be the b3, which is not the most convenient. A volume pedal might be a good idea.
