You can run it into a 8 Ohm cab.
As far as I know a solid state amp like the 8100 doesn't need a speaker load.
Could be wrong though.
I have a 16 ohm cab...would that work as a load or am I going to start blowing shit up?
Can anyone confirm that you don't need a load for a solid state amp?
Yes. The VS8100 can run without a load. No load on this kind of SS amp means no current and no OT to fry.
My Valvestate VS100R combo comes with a Celestion Gold Back 12" @ 8 ohms and it is Made in England.
Here is my chain, does this make sense? I've never chained (slaved?) two amps before, want to make sure I'm not fucking anything up
Reamp out -> TS9 -> 8100 input -> 8100 send -> 5150 return
8100 boost channel volume is around 4, not too loud. Sounds pretty cool upon first listen, will post if I still think so later on ; )
Yup, that's right, would love to hear it!
Man I gotta get an od820 asap! My buddy has one of these amps, they're awesome
Here is 8100 into 6505 power amp.
Mesa os cab>57>API
Clip features in order:
Thought it would be good to hear a comparison of all these,
The 8100 is super bright and present compared to the 6505 and recto.
I used the Lasse/Mago DI set for this.
You mention it being pretty bright and Lasse mentions it having a spike at 4KHz...
... doesn't just lowering the treble and/or presence help?
The 8100 through the 6505 sounds really good to me. I think I even prefer it to the 6505 and triple recto.
I just picked up a 8100 myself for 125 euro :hotjump:, might use it on some reamps next month. Probably going to try the 5150 power amp route as wel.
what you think about the sound?
