Headphone/practice amp with XLR in

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by OriginalCrash, Feb 17, 2009.


  1. Hey guys, I'm currently playing through a LMII, which of course, doesn't have a dedicated headphone out. I could always plug into the tuner out or effects send, but then I'm dealing with mono sound, mismatched impedance/levels, and the fact that it completely bypasses the eq and filters. So does anyone know of a good, solid (but still relatively cheap) headphone amp with an XLR in that I could use for practicing? To clarify, it's not that I can't find some by searching the web; I'm just looking more for recommendation/experience. Thanks.

    Doubt you'd find a headphone amp with an XLR in, but why not get one that does regular line in and just grab an XLR - 1/4" cable for it?

    I use my Soundcraft Spirit Notepad mixer. I can plug my bass straight and any other sources. It has a very healthy headphone output and can be used for many other things besides the bass.

    here is one on ebay. They go for dirt cheap and sound pretty darn good!
