I was wondering for those of you that play tube amps (older ones with NO XLR) through a PA system ....how do you mic yours up? You see, I have a Line 6 Vetta II and it does what I need it to do going through a PA...however, I really miss the sound of a good, clean Fender all tube amp like the twin reverb. If I ever replaced my vetta II with a tube amp, there are a few concerns that I would have to address: First, I use different effects, so I would more than likely use something like a POD XT Floorboard and this would be plugged into my tube amp. Second, I would need a way to hook up the tube amp to the PA system (with my vetta II, I just go straight in XLR on the back of my amp. ) Could I just use the POD XT floorboard and go XLR out from it? Third, the MAIN reason I have used Line 6 products, is because I can SEPERATE my AMP SIGNAL from the PA SIGNAL. On my Vetta II, I have a master volume that only controls the volume of the amp itself....it does not effect the volume at all of the XLR that goes out to the PA board! (that is another knob) This is a MUST for me, because when I used a regular tube amp before that was mic'ed and I needed a little more volume onstage, I would krank up my amp....but this was a double edged sword...because when I did this, the PA guy had to adjust the guitar again. Either up or down depending on what I adjusted the amp to. I do not have a professional soundman where I play, so the Line 6 amps having a seperate volume that allowed you to use your amp as a monitor and leave the main signal volume that you send to the PA board untouched was a Godsend. Is there a way to do this with a line 6 Pod XT floorboard? As you can see, I do have a vetta II and I love it, but I would love the warm sound of a tube amp, if I could seperate the signals from the tube amp and the PA system that it is going to. So, how do you have YOUR tube amp (old or new) set up to go through the PA system?
