i really dont think you should do that... unless that peavey is a cab... which i know for sure is a combo. It already has a head attached to it. That's why tell call them combos: Head+Cab combined....

dude just go buy your $4000 guitars, and keep playing it through that bandit and your still gonna sound like $#iT!!! so why dont you instead of buying another $4000 guitar spend that money on a good amp to help out the tone of that guitar!

Why did you tell him that? Now his parents will have to shell out for several handwired Marshall-stacks.

That Bandit is a very good-sounding solid-state amp. I wouldn't mess with it. You can't really plug a head into another amp unless the head has a line-out, and even if it does the head needs to have its own speaker or you could ruin the head. Plugging the speaker out of the head into the Bandit will destroy one or both amps (especially if the head is tube.) If you want to use the speaker of the Bandit with a head you will have to disconnect the Bandit and wire the speaker to the head. It will work if the speaker ohms match the head's ohms, but the output of the head is too strong (probably) and you will be in danger of blowing the speaker, even at low volumes. Cheaper to by another combo (preferably tube.)

Yeah, as it's been stated, You really shouldn't use a combo as a cabinet. If your looking at amps and want a Tom Delonge sound, you should know (which I'm sure you already do) that Tom uses Mesa Triple Rectifiers. However, that is a 150 watt tube amp which means it's LOUD, and you need to crank it to get a good tone out of it. If your not in a band, look at some smaller tube amps. I know mesa has that express amp, I'm not sure if it gets rectifier tones, but it more than likely will. With tube amps you would really never need 150 watts. In fact you would never really need more than 50. If you really want to use a halfstack, I would recomend getting the Mesa Single Rectifier. It's 50 watts and more power than you'll ever need.

I thought you had a dual recto? Play that. Problem solved. Unless you don't have a cab for it, then you're even more of an idiot then i thought.

Plugging your head into a combo amp will probably blow up both of them unless the head has a line out like its been stated. The new Mesa Express are very good, though it can't quite get Recto tones. i would check out the EVH 5150III Halfstack, or Mesa Triple Rec. like its been suggested. However, I think a Line 6 Vetta II Combo would be excellent for what you need.

That's what I was thinking. It's supposed to be damn near perfect.
#11
Seriously, i'm doubting whether you deserve a £2000 guitar if you play it through anything other than a legendary amp.

There's something called a volume knob
#15
^haha
well said besidesdude honestly though its just wrong to play an expensive guitar through a crappy amp and the recto does have a volume knob

also tom delonge doesn't really play guitar for AVA that much all he does is sing from what i saw

As everyone else here is being assholes, and having read your apology thread, I'll try and give you a hand. However, first you'll need to say style, budget, gear, and the kind of tone you're going for

Dude you try to show your gear stupidly.... by the way you rite the names of your gear completeLY.... you have a good arsenal... you should ask(if you don't know) how to use it not how to mess it up, or state stupid thoughts about it being too loud for practising, DON'T YOU KNOW THE PROPERTIES OF A VOLUME KNOB??!!!

ok you can call a friend


that's who wants to be a millionare.

In answer to your question i'll say you can plug heads into speakers, so long as it's an open backed combo. If it's anything like my peavey then the speaker will have a jack that you can just plug straight into the back of a head, otherwise you might have to cut up a jack speaker cable and hook up the bare ends either to speaker terminals or just leave them bare even and solder them to the tabs on the speaker. Don't expect it to sound like the boogie cab however.

You are being too defensive. Just say what you have to say and wait for sensible answers. If this flaming keeps on you may want to take a break from UG for a few months. Think about what you are saying and how you are saying it. This really looks more like a "Communication Breakdown" than anything. Just some advice from a formerly sensitive person.

I think you'd get some great help from the guys on here if you didn't have such an....interesting reputation....

Like I said in the other thread- UGers in general are egomaniacal jerks who can only get off by ragging on others. Especially others who can afford the gear they wish they could even touch. This means you'll practically always have to weed out ten inflamamtory posts before you find one that's a bit helpful. Chin up and learn to ignore ignorant flaming.

To all the people who say "just turn down the volume on your Recto"- don't you know that a loud amp generally sounds staggered and half-assed if the volume is below 1? I'd suspect that's the case here. Even my relatively tiny Cube gets weedy if I want to keep it at a tolerable level when I'm practicing at night, so I'd guess the tone from a gnarly bastard like a Dual Rectifier would suffer from it as well..
