    The Music Man is now SOLD!!! Univox taken off the market, for now anyway. I'll start a new thread if I decide to sell it.

    Free bump. A few questions about the MM that others may also have - do you know if you can run it with a rack preamp instead of the one it has? This has the high/low power switch, right? And I've heard the speaker outputs run series, not parallel - stupid question, but what does that mean, practically speaking? Thx, DM

    Good questions! The MM does not presently have an insert jack or fx loop for bypassing its own preamp. I think it would be a fairly simple mod for a competent amp tech, if you wanted to go that route. It does have the high/low power switch, very handy for low-volume practice etc.

    The outputs are in series, and what that means in practical terms is if you want to run cabs in parallel, you have to link the cabs directly to each other, rather than using two outputs on the amp. So e.g. I have two 8-ohm cabs, and I just run one cable from the amp to cab A, and a second cable from cab A to cab B. That gets me a 4 ohm load, and there is a switch on the back of the amp to select 4 or 8 ohm operation.

    If I had two 4-ohm cabs instead, I could use the series outputs on the back of the amp, and it would be an 8-ohm load, and I'd flip the switch to 8-ohm mode. Same wattage at 4 and 8 ohms. So really the series outputs, along with the switch, make this amp much more flexible than other amps, in terms of using either one cab or two, whether you have 4-ohm or 8-ohm cabs.

    Thanks. Very helpful. Now I'll really start agonizing.
     
  5. Is the tremolo on the univox foot switchable? I've read that on some the tremolo and reverb were foot switchable

    Yes, both the tremolo and the reverb have their own jacks for footswitch on/off. I'll even throw in a nice-quality footswitch, so all you'd need to provide is the cable.

    The MM is roughly 23" x 10" x 9", and the Univox is roughly 23" x 11" x 10".
