NEED HELP QUICKLY! Elec. Drum + Bass in 1 Keyboard amp?

Discussion in 'Live Sound [BG]' started by Salamenster, May 24, 2012.


  1. You guys gotta help me out. :help:

    Tomorrow I have a hasty-planned practice at the drummer's. Now I don't have time and transport to bring my amp tomorrow.

    Good thing is, the drummer uses a electrical drumkit, playing trough a (Behringer, I know, kinda sucky brand sometimes) keyboard amp.

    Now, the question. Will the amp be able to withstand both his electrical drumming (in stereo) AND my (high-output) Epiphone EB-0 with flats?

    Thanks for reading and of course for your help! :hyper:

    Question: Which Behringer keyboard amp? I'll take a guess, a K900FX

    At a somewhat high volume, I can't imagine the amp withstanding either the drumming or the bass, much less both together.

    At low volumes, it ought to be fine, but with a lot of volume, you may find that cute voice coil flying across the basement floor with the speed of a bat on fire.

    I suppose phones aren't an option... It's rehearsal right ? No nee to knock the walls back. Just play within the amp's ability and learn what you are rehersing to learn. Music doesn't actually have to be loud for you to learn your parts or to be good for that matter... Crazy concept I know...

    Some keyboards have full sampled drumsets, same as edrums, and the left and right hand of the player, and midi sequencers for other parts.

    They can handle it, if it's distorting and farting, turn down. Not much worry about volume since they are drums. Unless the pads are those noisy rubber/plastic pads.

    Try the behringer before you declare it sucky.

    I did it with a roland 350 once, it was bearable, but far from ideal

    Don`t you have a small combo you can throw in the car ?
     
  8. If I had a car. xD

    But it worked allright, altough I had NO low whatsoever, it worked. It was in a trio-formation so I managed to cut trough. It worked at low volume, but I won't recommend it. It truly, truly sucks.

    Thanks for all the replies, guys. Appreciate it.
