Device for switching between preamps??

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Basically I am looking to use a genz benz streamliner as a power amp and 2 different preamps for live usage. I currently have the trace v-type and am on the lookout for an ampeg svp cl. I am after a rack device which will enable me to switch between preamps for different songs etc. Worse case a pedal will do.

Anyone have experience of doing this and if so, firstly how would I connect 2 preamps to the poweramp which has one preamp in/out?? Or will the device have this?

Any recommendations???

Many thanks
Freddie

You need a tech (which I'm not), but thinking out loud, both preamps would need to be powered up all the time and output wired into the 'switch' - you need separate channels,,,,,,,,,if there is such a thing, a pedal with a 'break-make-break' type action sounds possible, but both preamps would have to be preset for the same gain signal to the main amp. Personally I'd use a multi-wafer rotary with capacitor buffers, clunky but safer, in my opinion) - over to the technical department............

Can't help but think that a one or two choice preamp pedals would be a lot easier all round.

Would a simple a/b pedal with a Y-cable to the power amp not do the job?

I see absolutely no reason why not. :)

All you need is a Boss LS-2: [url="http://www.musiker-board.de/threads/zubeh%C3%B6r-boss-ls-2-line-selector.507884/"]Klick[/url]
You have to wire it like this:
