Using a JC120 as preamp for electric bass - dummy speaker load?
« on: October 10, 2019, 07:11:37 AM »
Hello!

I am planning on using my JC120 as a preamp to record electric bass. Obviously this means I will have to disconnect the speakers.
I am wondering what kind of resistors I should use as a dummy load, if necessary at all?

Being that the JC 120 is a solid state amplifier, there is not any need for a dummy load if you disconnect the speakers.
