Foolish, I know.. but all this talk of how EVH got his 1st album tone, with some folks claiming he "slaved" a Fender Showman into a Marshall, effectively turning the Fender into a big overdrive... it all got me thinking... so I thought "screw it" and plugged the ext. speaker out into a cab, just to see what that would sound like.. this is dangerous, you are supposed to use the main out first and only plug in the ext. jack if the main out is seeing a cab... Well, it's very quiet and it sounds AWESOME. IMHO. Here's a clip, click on Bassman ext. out: http://music.mp3lizard.com/peterthorn/ I could easily hear how this, in front of a Marshall plexi, would sound just awwesome- I tried it into my badger for a minute and it sounded really great... so now I'm like, great the Bassman makes the best OD box in the world but I'll probably blow it up if I keep this up!
