Kalamazoo Model 1
« on: October 21, 2013, 03:59:33 PM »
Can someone tell why or the difference between the 2 inputs on this amp.  Mine seems to be a little hotter in input 1 as opposed to input 2.  When I look online all I fine is "2 inputs, 1 channel" which being non technical in this area means nothing to me.

"2 inputs one channel".   I wonder they are the same.  Maybe it was designed so you could plug two guitars into it.   Two inputs into the exact same channel.

Both inputs feed the same channel--you will find a slight drop in volume for both inputs when both are used.

Is there any reason to use one input over the other?

I know this is an old post but I have that amp an if I remember correctly input one is a lot hotter than input 2. I can dial in a better sound with the softer channel.

The designers might have been thinking one input for guitar, the other for the vocal mic, and thought the difference in output important.

I have a Kalamazoo Model II and I just got it fixed.   .... But I still don't use it.  Got it just in case I guess.
