    Greetings, all :).

    I recently bought a Gallien-Krueger 700RB. (Oh, it sounds SOOO killer!)

    I haven't picked out a cab yet, and I intend to take my time. But meanwhile, would it be safe to run the signal out of the GK effects send...then into the effects return of my Laney combo amp? I would be using the GK as a preamp only, with no load on the power amp (which is solid state).

    I know all-tube heads blow up if you do this, but I can't seem to find a definitive answer about solid state heads like my GK.

    Thanks!

    I do it all the time with my 2001RB and haven't had a problem.If you want to be safe,call the factory and talk to Alvin at Ext.127.He's an engineer/product support guy and can answer any questions you might have about your amp.

    Thanks, cantstandsya (did I spell that right?)! That's the kind of reply I was hoping for. :)
