Splitting signal from Harp Mic

Postby hashtaff » Fri Jul 07, 2006 4:12 am

I poste this in "Wish I'd Known this" too but thought some fellow harpers would get it easier here.

Played a gig in small pub last night. Was too small for the 4x10 Sonny Jr but BrianP's Champ copy was a touch underdone.
Rather than mic the amp I used a trick passed on to me by "G" of New Zealand.
I used a Boss digital reverb which has a stereo output and ran one output into the amp and the other into the pa (instrument/mic in...NOT line in)
Using a Green Bullet the tone from both was great and had complete control of volume from the pa.
This works with reverb on or off ( though if I'm using a pedal I like a touch of reverb anyway)
Also splitting the signal fattens it up even more.
This much easier than mic'ing and really useful, particularly if you don't have a line out (which I didn't). Also practically feed-back proof).
Hope this helps someone else.

Hey thanks for remindin' us of that one Hash; I'll have to try that with my Digitech delay. It's funny how close you can be to a simple solution and sometimes not even see it.

Hashtaff, you said "I used a Boss digital reverb which has a stereo output and ran one output into the amp and the other into the pa (instrument/mic in...NOT line in)" What was the difference between the instrument/mic in and the line in? My board doesn't have ins specified this way. What is the impedence difference on the board you were using?
Thanks

The board we used had separate low and high impedance inputs which is something you need to look out for. Some don't and can presumeably handle either. Best to check with the manual first.

I seem to have enough gain flexibility to not have to pay much attention to that. The Low impedence inputs are all XLR on my board
