2 amps, 1 guitar ????

  1. Hey, this is probably a stupid question but anyway i was watching a blink 182 live vid today (not that im a big fan) but the bassist (mark) had 2 ampeg heads and 2 ampeg cabs, i was just wondering how does he use both when there is only one input on your bass???

    Thanks Morty :p

    Like the Monty Python skit says; the answer is 'volume'!

    That's why, but how? Probably a signal-splitter of some kind or, more likely, a simple operation such as preamp out -> power amp in (or line out -> effect return or whatever) between the amps.

    Some line drivers are designed to do it. The Roger Meyer Voodoo bass will do distortion as well. THe ZVex SHO is a preamp/booster designed to run 2 amps.

    Much easier than that:

    Bass -> amp1 - line out -> amp 2

    This saves you from tweaking both EQs as well.
