    i was looking at buying an ampeg v-4bh and also wanted a rack tuner to sit on top but looking at the ampeg website the head does not have a tuner out or an effects loop does any 1 have this amp or know how i would go about using a rack tuner on this?

    thanks for the help

    a thousand question and not enough
    time to ask them all.

    Those heads where made for the old school crowd, short on features and meaner than a pitbull. tuner out - instrument in, see if the tuner has a bypass switch.

    I use a cheap small tuner that has a true bypass, so I can turn the tuner off while its in my effects chain to my amps imput, I'm shure rack tuner probably will work in the same manner.
    E-mail Korg or go to their website and down load the manuel.

    ok thanks dude
  6. You can come out of the Pre amp out on the back of the amp like on the SVTCL head.

    It works fine for a send signal to a tuner etc.

  7. Get a Boss TU-2 floor box.

    If you are just putting that and a tuner with nothing else in a rack, save yourself and get a floor pedal tuner. That being said:

    Boss TU-2 pretty much industry standard I didn't go with it though because it's accuracy is +/-3cents which is kind of a lot.

    Korg DT-10 I bought this because it's accuracy is +/-1 cent. Only downside is that it's slightly bigger than the Boss TU-2. I love mine

    If you are already set on a rack setup though, get a high quality rack tuner. The korg DTR-1000 is what I would get. The DTR-2000 is way overkill. Just plug into the tuner's instrument input and go to the amp from the amp out. A good quality tuner such as the Korg will have a mute button for silent tunning and will not affect your tone to a noticable point.

    Hope that helps.
