'Evening . I've been using a GK MB 212 since January and it's (IMO) a stellar amp. What I'm wondering about is this: is my signal too hot when it gets to the amp ? The amp's gain and master knobs are around 9 oc, while the boost knob is noonish, so that seems OK. On my pedalboard (chain is sigged), I always have dry/dry signals when not using effects and wet/dry signals when using them. The comp's output knob is at noon and the input is at 3 oc, the PBDDI level knobs are usually around 2 oc and the ART tube preamp's knobs are at noon (the rest don't really come into play). So... am I feeding fire into the amp, leading it to burn somewhere along the road ? EDIT: forgot to mention: my basses are passive.
