    Does anyone have any experience with using both channels on the Bassman Ten simultaneously ? I have used this amp for years, mostly for recording ( bass and guitar) I have found that I can get better tone by running from an aby box into both the bass inputs on both channels 1 and 2. I have never had any problems with this. It may seem lilke a stupid question, but does running through both channels at the same time bad for this amp? Some techs have said no, others had said yes ? So I thought I'd drop the question here.

    I must say, for all the poo poo that silverface-master vol bassmans get, this amp has been a winner for me for a long time. All of my bassess, warwick, rick, Fender J and P bass all track very well through this amp. I dont gig with it, but it can add some nice growl to studio work.

    Thanks for any input.

    To use both channels at once:
    put your signal cable into input one on channel one. then take a short jumper from channle on'es other input, and jump into channels two's fist input. My amp tech showed me this. Lets you use volume and all tone controls from both channels at once...
