Valve amp for recording?

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by CauliColin, Apr 29, 2017.

  1. Hi,
    I found a deal on an Ashdown CTM-15 head, I was wondering if I could use it for recording but just plugging it in to other pedals, or a USB interface from the speaker out? Since I don't have any cabinets or anything would this be a viable option or could it damage the head in some way?

    Without a speaker load, you'll eventually burn it out.

    The USB interface would become a door stop with the first note.
  4. Thanks guys! Looks it wasn't meant to be!

  5. You reeeeaaly, reeeheeeealy do not want to interface the speaker out for recording.
    Unless you reeeeaaly, reeeheeeeaaly know what you're doing.
    You'd blow up the USB interface and the horse it rode in on.

    The Ampeg Pf20 and Pf50 have a direct out feature so you don't need a load.
