thanks

it seems i have to turn the volume/output knob to around 2 o clock on the ADA to get the full signal.

i also tried using the send output on the ADA to the JCM 800 and it works

is there a difference?

i don't have to crank the output on the ada if i am using fx send instead of output A, but the jcm 800 pre amp gain must be on 10 to get full signal or it sounds buzzy.

Well the send will not have the chorus signal.

Now if you don't have enough signal then you can switch the ADA to line so it will output more signal.

About the JCM800,there is a small brown 1000pF cap on the preamp vol pot, you can cut it off so it won't sound buzzy at lower settings.

not gonna touch anything on the 800.

but man, it sounds mean.

i wish marshall has a power amp that uses the same everything as the jcm 800.

A couple people have asked about my Rig Setups, so I thought it'd be neat to actually make a diagram/schematic of sorts about how my stuff is hooked up.  Fun!  I haven't done that Windows Paint thing in quite some time.  lol

Rig of Fire

A=  Crate Powerblock
B=  Rack -  MP-2/Xpression/Classic 60-60/tuner
C=  Morley Tremonti wah
D=  Morley volume pedal
E=  Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer
F=  Electro-Harmonix Mel9
G=  Saturnworks Buffered Splitter
H=  Rolls MidiBuddy
The top 2 speakers in each cab are connected to the Rack, and are in Stereo.
The bottom 2 speakers in each cab are connected to the Powerblock/stompbox chain, and are Mono.

The stompbox fx are always On, and the volume pedal controls the On/Off and overall Output of that effect. This allows that effect to be separate from the guitar; Guitar only, Effect only, or both simultaneously.   The Mel9 is very touch sensitive, so the Compression pedal is helpful to even some of that effect out.  The buffered splitter gives a good clean signal to both chains.  The Crate Powerblock is compact, and definitely affordable so it works good here.  I may replace it with a rack amplifier later on though; this diagram subject to change.

I split the cabs this way (top/bottom instead of the typical stereo wiring of left/right in each cab) because they are typically stacked on top of my bassist's 4x10 cabs and that puts the drivers featuring the guitar closer to my ear level.  It's harder to EQ the amp and set the stage volume correctly when the speakers are aimed at the back of your knees... ::)

Home Rig

A=  Crate G60XL combo amp
B=  ADA Quad Tube 150 combo amp
C=  Morley Tremonti wah
D=  Morley volume pedal
E=  Boss CS-3 Compression Sustainer
F=  Electro-Harmonix Mel9
G=  Saturnworks Buffered Splitter
H=  Rolls MidiBuddy

Same setup as before except using two combo amps instead of Rack/Powerblock/4x12 cabs.  Here, the Quad Tube gets the guitar signal and the Crate combo gets the Mel9 signal.
