15" Combo's that have an Effects loop that bypasses the Preamp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by markjazzbassist, Jan 25, 2018.


  1. I'm looking for suggestions for 15" combos that bypass the Preamp via an effects loop. I could do a separate power amp and cab, but thought there might be some decent stuff for cheap (used is great) that has that.

    I don't need a ton of power, 100w plus is fine. Just need the Effects loop to accept line level. Also need the cab ported somehow, i don't like sealed 15's.

    Suggestions? Thanks

    i'd be using a preamp in on the loop. Again i could do separate power/cab but that might cost me more and this is just a small rig for corporate jazz real book gigs, don't need a ton of power, just need light and compact.

    Piece of cake! Fender Rumble 200 1x15 combo.

    Possibly a SWR Workingman's 15
     
  4. Older GC Acoustic B200 has effects loop and will do fine and affordable

    If you can get your hands on one, the Walkabout Scout does it. It'll do either or. The switch allows bypass or not.

    And it is nothing short of impressive in every respect.

    That means I could plug a tech21 bddi or a mesa d-800 preamp and totally by-pass the 200’s preamp?

    Sure! Just go from any pre-amped device into the effects return and you're going directly into the super transparent ICE Power section.
