Mesa 400+ Slave out

  1. How does the slave output work in these amps?Are they just a preamp output or does the poweramp, power go through it aswell?

    Cheers.

    I plug my 400+ slave out to my Korg tuner :eek:
     
  4. I just found out......slave output takes a signal from the output transformer where the tone is best and loading problems are avoided.

    So that means it gets the 6l6 tube sound as well as the preamp.
     
  5. Hey Devnor, your tuner is probably working o.k. out of the slave, but I run mine from the send with the knob on the effects loop off or zero. That was recommend to me by Boogie. FYI
