neuk01642 Posted July 4, 2018 Share Posted July 4, 2018 Hey peeps So I'm toying with the idea of getting hold of a used studio preamp or Quad (if I can stump up the cash). I want to get a little of that Boogie meat into my tone but don't have the cash for a full blown Mesa head. I'm currently running my Helix 4CM with my Blackstar Series 1 200. The idea is I'd be by passing the preamp on the blackstar in favour of the Mesa pre but I'm trying to get my head around how this will work cabling wise. So signal chain at the moment is Voodoo Labs GCX / Various drive pedals and fuzzes / Helix / BS Series 1 / Cab & Weber loadbox line out. Anyone help me out/has done this before? Also, regarding the switching. There's obviously pedals for either of the pre's but I'd kind of like to use the floor control as I am at the moment and use my helix to control switching. However the footswitch plugs aren't your standard plugs so I'd have to use the remote switching jacks. On the Quad there are 8 of these... how does that work with the one external switching output from the Helix? Would it be a case of investing in something like the Amp Gizmo so I can keep using Midi? Look forward to any and all suggestions. Cheers Matt Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
