Avalon U5 question

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by TSanders, Aug 23, 2009.

  1. A local buddy is going to let me give his Avalon U5 a shot.

    I plan on using it for a DI live (in front of my SVT-2 Pro) and Ill use it in the studio as well.

    Is there a way I can run into the Avalon and then to my SVT and bypass the U5s tone controls so its not acting as a pre and only as a DI?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    One of the "tone" settings on the U5 is "flat", i.e. tone bypass.
  3. :bassist:Yes. Use the front panel "through out" into your SVT-2. Make sure the "active to through" button is disengaged. Enjoy!

    There's a "tone" switch on the front panel - make sure it's off.

    It's a GREAT DI, the soundman will love you.

    pretty soon you will be running the U5 straight into the poweramp section of the svt and bypassing the ampeg preamp.

    just a prediction....:cool:
  6. Thanks for the responses. Looking forward to giving the Avalon some live and studio time!!
  7. I have to stop selling them. It's inevitable I will buy one back some day :help:
