MAZ Jr NR head and 1x12 cab....used it with the BL SA at practice last night and it worked great!
Question for those running with a FOH or monitoring system...instead of mic'ing the cab, anyone using a direct box/speaker simulator that accepts speaker level output and sends balanced mic-level signal to feed the house/monitors? (For instance, I have an old H&K Red Box Pro direct box that has a 4x12 cab "simulated sounds"). Sound quality questions aside...would prefer a good mic, but that has pros and cons.
Bottom line - would hanging such a direct box off the BA SL in parallel with the 8ohm cab give me any different impedance load for the amp compared to just the cab?
Thanks for any feedback!

I've been using the original, active H&K Redbox for about twenty years. I've had some sound guys get concerned when I pull it out but after they hear it they tend to like it. I like the fact that it doesn't compress and add distortion like a 58 or some other mics.
also I would run it between the head and the brakelite, they have a very large input impedance(500K) that shouldn't mess with you speaker impedance.

GuitarZ: They say you should be on the same page about kids before you get married. I really think you ought to talk about expectations on outdoor Christmas/Holiday lights. That could have been a game changer.

GuitarZ: Arggh! We had it on the calendar to stop out and see you but got caught up with holiday stuff. I could have met you & Frank & my wife could have connected with her friend from back in grade school. You snooze you lose. The FB videos sound great!

GuitarZ: Why is it once you finally clean the junk off your work bench, within 5 minutes, you find yourself ready to deposit some other junk right back on to that now clean space?

rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
