I'm thinking about getting a keyboard amp to use with my Digitech rp355 and was wondering if any of you guys had experience with using mfx pedals through a keyboard amp. I heard because they have a FRFR that you'll hear things that you've never heard before from your mfx unit and was wondering how much of a difference it actually makes. And would it still be FRFR if I used the headphone output on the amp?

I posted a thread at tgp but no one has replied and it's been almost three hours. It's just like they're ignoring it or something..

Anyways, any experience would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You'll hear the same thing from headphones. Do you have a stereo system? Because if you do you should try plugging into it. Lots of people dump older high quality stereo equipment on Craigslist cheap. I use a pair of Yamaha consumer audio speakers with a stereo power amp as my PA. It's plugged into my mixer. But you could also just use a Stereo receiver.

I've got small computer speakers.

Headphones dont give you that "big" sound that you get from a proper big PA amp.
That feeling of air moving and the environment around you vibrating just doesnt come.

A stereo will also work.
Anything that doesnt color the tone will always sound good with a modeller.

so work on getting some monitors if that pedal is going to be the main source of your sound

The only real answer to the SG vs Les Paul debate is to get a Flying V and laugh at all the suckers who don't have one.

I also have speakers in my keyboard but I don't think I can hook it up to those.

You're going to want to talk to GS Lead 5. I think that's his name. I'm pretty sure he does that.

EDIT ^ How the **** did I miss that he already posted?

Kutless, don't worry about that keyboard amp. You know it's only a matter of time until you get a G3 to go with your RP355. How can your resist an endorsement like this....

#10
I used to run a Zoom MFX into a keyboard amp. It worked perfectly. Your RP355 has the switch on the back changing from amp to mixer. A keyboard amp is only a PA in combo form .

Lol fly, I dont want the g3.

Guitar multifx/modellers with keyboard amps.
Sounds good on its own.
Don't expect it to cut through a band mix.

That is all.

Angus is spot on. Last practice I used this setup. Was all excited. Was all let down.

The people he plays with wont be using real tube amps, if what he has said before is true, its a world of SS amps out there.

playing along with real tube amps? Not a chance.

It sounds fine it just doesnt cut through a band mix. For a big sound at home with a modeller they'll do the job.
Has GS ever used a keyboard amp/modeller setup with a band?
I have personally done this ,so has tom and we both report it failed in the band mix. It'll fall flat on its ass with a good drummer/other guitarists with tube amps
#20
Yeah, I do play in a band....

I guess I'll just get a tube amp then.

Thanks for the advice guys.

PM Kutless.

Short answer: They dont hit the same frequencies as a tube amp and dont fill the room properly.

Long answer: PM'd you.

Have. But not with tube amps.

Theres your problem.

Get a band mate using a tube amp and bring your setup along. It wont work.

No worries.


Quote by GS LEAD 5
The nearest tube amp is at least a few hundred miles away



True, but thats not the case for everybody so you have to be careful what you suggest, I mean I know that your not likely to join a band with a guy rocking a 6505, but Kutless is in the EU ( ? ) and thats a definate possibility

Forgot that bit.
A 6505 would rape any SS amp less that at least what? 600W?

Wouldnt need to be a volume difference, its the way tube amps work that make the difference.
