so i took my amp, (VK 112) and my ipod, a cable, and a 1/4in to 1/8 converter. I pluged it all up and ran it into the front imput on my amp, and using the clean channel. it works fine, but I am wondering if this is damaging my amp or my ipod?

dont think so, just your tubes will wear out faster, being constantly hot

this sounds better with a bass amp IMO
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

dude, i think yuo just broke your amp. for real. i mean, the capacitors can only take as much as the tubes put out, and if you're running an ipod into your amp, that's waaaaaaaaaay more wattage than the cathodes in your tubes are meant to handle.

I can imagine it being bad. Tube amps aren't designed for CD/MP3 input, hence no specific CD/MP3 input

...yeah.

I think it should be ok, only things that come to mind are input impedance, preamp overload (if the signal is not distorting you should be ok I think, just keep the Ipod volume low) and speaker breaking (if you run it at low(ish) volumes I think you'll be ok. Hell, I think you can't break the speaker like that anyway).

But this is all just guessing.


...Ipod high wattage? You high or troll?

At first I thought this about storing your amp on its side...
Me too. I need to try running the ipod through my da5 and see what that is like. I believe you can do that while playing. I wouldn't try it on a tube amp tho..

wow that looks amazing...


anyway, id use a little ss amp for ipod. thats what i do actually and it sounds fine. using the valveking will just wear down the tubes. id rather wear them down with a guitar more than an ipod haha
