    I started jumping the two channels together on my '62 Brown Deluxe with just a short patch cord--using the channel my guitar is pluged into as my main volume, and using the other chanel to overdrive it a bit. I have only seen a couple of people do this before. Do any of you do this? Does it hurt the amp any?

    I do it constantly, always play my Clark Tyger and Gibson GA40 this way. In fact, tried it on every vintage tweed and brownface fender I've come across. Depending on the amp, it can add a little or totally wake the amp up.

    I play around with jumping all my Tweeds ,they seem to like it. Teleman is correct IMHO read and heed. My 5E3 and 5f4 do well with channel jumping.

    I'm a little confused. I've heard of this before but I can't figure it out. How do you jump it if your guitar is plugged into one of the inputs?
    What am I missing here?

    You need two inputs per channel, two channels, to jumper via cable. Or, as long as you have two channels, you can do it via A/B/Both switch, plug into both.

    I jumper the channels on my four input amps with a Reinhardt Hitman. It's basically and A/B/Y box with a boost built into it.:cool:

    I used to jumper

    I found that the harmonics and richness are there and more present without jumping. I think that's why a lot of famous artists didn't jump their Marshalls. I think the jumped tone is warmer, but if you crank, the brights peel off and the tone is sweeter not harsh.

    I've noticed that when I've jumpered the channels on my tweed Deluxe clone, vs. not jumping.
