Re: OR120 Daisy Chaining?

Don't know if I ever brought this up, but there was a band in Worcester that had a brilliant theft deterrent for their rehearsal space in a complex: they had Peavey stickers all over the door...! I suspect it is all a front and that Billy and Gladmarr are actually secret closet admirers of Hartley ...

Re: OR120 Daisy Chaining?

Sadly, without an isolating transformer or an active circuit it can't be done. Feel free to try the daisy chain, though. There might not be a problem. Hmm. I'm sure there's a simpler way. Surely something as simple as swapping the polarity of the cab would work!? If the amps are outputting at diffe...

Re: OR120 Daisy Chaining?

Add +1 pro Peavey. Love the VTM series amps! Johnny, there's a chance the two amps might play out-of-phase when you chain them together. When you use two different amps at the same time, one amp might have different numbers of gain-stages from the other. Each gain stage flips the polarity, so if on...

Re: OR120 Daisy Chaining?

I'm getting the feeling that, like our Billy, Gladmarr doesn't approve of Peaveys much... :lol: http://forum.orangeamps.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=54091" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Yes you can link from the spare input like that.

Re: OR120 Daisy Chaining?

Yes. Go from your guitar to the high in on the Orange, and then lo on the Orange to hi in on the peavey. Although, I can't imagine why you'd be using a Peavey when you have an OR120 around. Thanks The Peavey actually adds a different texture I quite like under/in the mix. It's not the greatest soun...

OR120 Daisy Chaining?

I thought I'd ask before I tried as, well, I'd hate to blow something up! I'm recording again soon with my band (we do it all ourselves) and I want to record two amps at the same time - My OR120 and a '76 Peavey Deuce. Can I daisy-chain the Peavey from the Orange with the other input on the amp like...

Re: Pedalboard from 1 battery - lifespan...

#1) you're insane for decreasing the number of pedals that you're using. #2) that battery pack doesn't necessarily have to take up so much space on your board. You could get pretty good results with C cells or AA cells in the same configuration. All of them would be better than using a single 9v to...

Re: Pedalboard from 1 battery - lifespan...

You should always be building a BIGGER pedal board. You aren't planning on having LESS pedals, are you?!? Hahaha! Yes! I've gone from 2 boards with about 16-20 pedals down to one with just 5...and two of them aren't even really effects! (tuner & gate) I'd like to rehouse them all into one box but i...

Re: Pedalboard from 1 battery - lifespan...

There's a couple ways you could do this. You could wire several standard 9v batteries in parallel so you still have 9v but then you'll get more current output to your pedal boards. He second option, which is much more sustainable, would be to buy a battery holder for six D cell batteries which have...

Pedalboard from 1 battery - lifespan...

After years of battling with dirty power, hums, whistling and fighting over/searching for power outlets onstage...I've decided to experiment with powering my pedalboard from 1 9v battery in a switched box. Now, my question is, does anyone know how to work out the math as to how long a battery might ...

Re: I've found a mighty tone....

Must be a great relief ti have that sorted!!! Is the tone as glorious with the new speakers? It's not quite as delicious but still quite a fantastic tone. The two speaker sounds' blend quite well and certainly compliment each other. A small sacrifice to make for the sake of being able to hear it!

Re: I've found a mighty tone....

So tonight a test fire of the re-loaded cab took place under normal (read:stupid loud) band conditions and I'm happy to declare it a total success :) Absolutely tons more power and cut through with room to spare! Didn't have to fiddle with the FAC knob at all and just minor adjustments to my usual E...
