i got a magical cord to hook up my two small amps together because i dont have money for a big amp, well i have money but i need it for a car and schooll so anywho i was thinking maybe i would pull a mastodon, where he hooks effects up to half the amps and leaves the others clean, now my question is, does it matter which amp i put them on? and if i do does which would be better? put the effects on the fist slightly bigger better amp or on the second smaller amp? thanks a ton in advance

whats this magical cord you speak of?


theres a special outlet on my first amp traynor dynabass 50 and when you buy this magical cord you put one end into the outlet and the other end into the input of the second amp to connect them together

that is called a preamp line out. it could have a 1/4" jack or an XLR jack. not magic,
very common.

Use the better amp on whatever you use most. If you play mostly clean with effects thrown in on a few songs then use the better one for clean usage.

Ibanez K5
Warwick Rockbass Vampyre 4

Line 6 Bass Pod XT Live
Epiphone Les Paul Custom

Most professional bands will do it actually.

As far as I'm aware Geddy Lee is now using a tri-amp system.



oh i see, most intriguing, most intriguing indeed
