    I have read and understand this should be safe, but I dont want to learn the lesson the hard way.

    Can I run my bass through my Acoustic B200 preamp then use the effects out loop to run it to the effects in of a Fender amp?

    ok. I was afraid having no signal going to the power section of my Acoustic might burn it up. Thank you guys so much.

    The effects send should not interrupt the signal to the Acoustics power amp. Being SS the Acoustic can be operated without a speaker cab indefinitely without damage.

    Well I am going to try it out later on tonight.

    I want to do this for a stupid reason, so if it blew it all up i would be very upset.
  8. What is the reason you want to do this?:confused:

    Lol ummm...

    I like the preamp and sound of my Acoustic amp's preamp. I am going to run its pre into a Fender Rumble 15 to use the headphone jack.
  10. It's only all tube amps that need to have a load. With SS you're fine :)
