Plugging Straight into the Pre-amp of your amplifier

To be able to do this you may need to modify your amp.
I have one amp, which is modified for this purpose, it also let me use the pre-amp as a line out, so it functions both ways.

The amp in question is a bass amp, and the sound straight out of the pre-amp is lovely: No more tone controls work, even the volume control does not do much. Most of this relates to how the engineer has done the job. It has been done a long, long time ago. Plugging into it recently made me realise how good the sound really is: It is almost like you plug straight into a mixer, but it still keeps the feel of playing through an amp.


Have not posted anything for a little while, but still working away with all kind of things, checking out various pedals and other things.

Anyway, has anyone done something like the above, or do I make you curious here?
Cheers

Do you perhaps mean into the power amp? Seems to me the input already goes straight into the preamp..... :?

Not sure what you mean here?

Hmmm you may be right, yes of course, it will be power amp, since there are not tone controls there, basically just amplifies instrument without any tonal colouration. Well, you still get some colour, but not as much as with pre-amp.

As said before, the mod. has been done a long time ago, have not used it all that much, but when I did so last week I really liked the sound.

I also have these moments when I like something in particular sound wise, and at another moment in time, the same sound may not appeal that much to me at all. But I guess we all have some of these things. I have not set things as "I love that sound or dislike that sound" The only thing which I value is that the instrument being used will keep much of its natural tone and feel so you can use it any way you like.

I've often thought about building a very neutral sounding power amp for using with "amp in a box" pedals. Then I just end up selling those pedals off before committing to the project. I think it would be a really cool option to have on an amp.. I'm planning to do some mods on my JMP, that might be one to look into.
