There should be an input, and an output on your pedal, the connections should be : guitar to pedal input, pedal out put to amp input.

Change the battery first. It could be dying and just barely have enough power to come on at first, but not to do anything else. If that doesn't solve it, you've got a defective one and you can go exchange it.

There is a small chance it "could" but more likely you would just overdrive the input stage to clipping.

You can try it- you need to keep the viltage input to the amp at 1 volt peak to peak or less, or you run the risk of clipping. You should use shielded cable, as you may also pick up other noise along that cable.

How do I connect my roland piano 5500 to an amp


On the rear of the piano there will be two 1/4" jacks labeled Output Left and Right. One will be labled Mono as well. If you are using a stereo amp, use both, and if a mono amp use just the mono output. If your amp is a guitar type, connect a shielded cable with 1/4" phone jacks such as you'd use with an electric guitar from these jacks to your amplifier. If you are useing a home stereo amp, you will need a cable with 1/4" phone jacks from the piano to RCA phono jacks on the amp end.

I only have a vintage Peavey XR600B and I want to connect and ipod and ipad up to it so I can play music. Can I do this or do I need special cables?


Sure you can, but that mixer amp is a mono amp instead of stereo. Head for radio shack and get an 1/8" stereo male phone jack to 1/4" female mono adaptor. Plug the adaper into the headphone output of your device. Then run a shielded cable with 1/4" mono phone plugs on both ends (like an electric guitar would use) from the device to one of the channels on the Peavey. Bring the volume up on both the channel and master on the amp up maybe 1/3 the way. Play a track on your device and adjust the devices out put as high as it will go with out distorting the channel input. Then adjust the amp's channel and main output as you would normally to get the final volume you need.

What kind of cable do you need to connect a Kurzweil K2500S to the amp?


Hi. You can use standard 1/4 inch jack to jack audio cables (ordinary guitar leads will work fine) to connect the MIX outputs to a keyboard combo amp. If the amp only has a mono input, just use one cable from the MIX output marked L to make the connection. Remember to keep the amp volume turned down until you have plugged in the cable(s) from the K2500S. All best.

CAN I PLUG IT IN TO MY AMP


Yes the output jack socket can be used either to:
  • plug in a set of headphones for personal listening / practice
  • to connect to an amplifier.
The zoom pedals use either a mono or (tip and sleeve) or stereo (tip, ring. sleeve) 1/4 inch jackplug - i.e a standard guitar lead.
You should plug it into a line-level or high impedance socket on your amp. With the pedal in play mode you can adjust the output level (gain) to match the input requirements of your amp by rotating the 'Value' knob (top right)

I have a crate cpb150 amp i want to connect it to my digitech gsp2101 via livewire stp-202 cable what is the correct way?


I can understand your confusion... and a lot depends how you are going to use this. There are some caveats regarding the connections,
If you use the 1/4 outputs on the GSP, there is a speaker modeling like function that is NOT available, that IS available IF you use the XLR outputs.
The STP is an "Insert Snake" which is not really what you want as it is intended to send and receive (audio going both directions in the cable.
If you want that speaker function, then you should get two XLR to 1/4 TRS cables and go from the XLR's on the GSP to the Left and Right inputs on the back of the Crate. Your audio or guitar then is connected to the GSP guitar input.
If you connect the guitar to the crate and then use the STP, Plug the TRS single connector into the Left/Mono/send/rtn on the Crate. The Send cable of the Y should go to the Send jack on the back of the GSP and the return should go to the left return jack of the GSP. This connection I would NOT recommend as it will be noisier and you will lose the stereo effect capabiltiy since the effect is inserted as a mono.

I believe you would be happier with using the XLR's to carry left and right to the Crate and run your inout to the GSP. In short, you have the wrong cable to do the best job.

Static Noise from guitar amp.


I take it you have made sure that both the cable to the distortion box from the guitar and the cable to the amp are both good. From the description you give, it sounds like there is no signal getting to the pedal. If the cable is good, then the next likely suspect would be the input jack on the fuzz box. Try wiggling it a little with the guitar cable in place to see if it is loose. Some input jacks are unbelievably cheap and flimsy. A crackling sound (static like) is almost always a bad connection. If it was the output jack, I would think that the guitar signal would come through a least a little bit, but you might want to try wiggling that one, too, if the input jack isn't the culprit.

Another possibility to check is the battery, but this doesn't seem as likely. Some effects units devour batteries, especially units that use 9V batteries. I have a multi effect pedal that kills a 9V in about an hour.

Confuse about the jack


Both stereo and mono jacks will work fine on the inputs, any guitar or mic lead will work a treat.

You can use stereo jacks for the outputs too, but to keep it simple just use a mono jack in the L out and a mono jack in the R out.
