Safe to run MB Fusion with no loaf?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by mikkejohansson, Jan 5, 2012.


  1. Know I've read about people using the MB500 and MB200 with no speaker load, as preamps. Does the same apply for the MB Fusion?
     
  2. It's OK running it without a loaf.

    :D

    Whole loaf? Nah. Thats just more marketing hype from the bread industry. You can use pita or even your own healthy choice of cracker. Might I suggest a whole grain Wheat Thin?

    Preamp tubes don't require a load. (eg. tube DI's) Power tubes on the other hand MUST have a speaker load on them, or damage will result. The Fusion like many hybrid amps (tube pre- SS power) is fine to power up without any.
     
  5. Damn you autocorrect.

    I find most people enjoy bread with their butter.:p


    Yes, you can run it without a load.
     
  7. You DO know that you can correct the thread title, right?
    Anyway yes, no loaf is fine as it's not a tube amp.
     
  8. Wow, what a coincidence. I have to pinch a loaf.

    I think he's talking about meat loaf.

    Ketchup then, or gravy?


    OP, don't edit your thread title, it's better this way.

    I want to know how you WOULD run it with a loaf. Unless it's WONDER BREAD.

  15. That was funny, I'm still laughing. The only thing I don't understand is why would you need bread for an MB Fusion?:confused:
     
  16. Yes. NOW I know ;)

  19. Well Mikke, your in Sweden so I don't know if you know about American idioms.
    "Taking the Ball and run with it" is an American idiom. And bass players know how to "take the ball and run with it" on or off the stage.
