Connecting Amp Head to mixer / headphone amp through...? (+ head circuit question)
I have a couple of questions for you guys:
I'm trying to put up a good electric guitar rig for studying and home-recording (for now.)
I need to play with the headphones, else, to connect an Amp Head to the Heaphone amplifier somehow, and eventually to the mixer/ADC (.)
I've been using some crappy tiny headphone amps, and now I'm using a linear gain booster, which I connect to a good headphone amp with better results.
I've been thinking about getting an amp head, but would not know how to connect it to the headphone amp and/or to the mixer.
I have some technical issues I haven't been able to solve.
1) I've seen that many Mesa Boogie and HiWatt heads feature a "slave out", "power amp out", "balanced out" etc...
Are those all line-level outs? Can I connect the Heads to my headphone amp and/or to a mixer directly through those outs?
2) What's behind those outs? An attenuator, a transformer, or just the preamp section? What kind of output stage is that?
3) Would buying a cabinet simulator be an anyway better solution?
4) I would like also to ask whether a mixer beetween the amp head (or cabinet simulator) and the headphone amp is needed
Again, use the search function. Weber is a very well regarded name in speakers and attenuators and will be fine for your amp, whether it's 1500€ or 200€. GS is a good place to get educated about good gear you may not know about.
Again, search the forums for keywords like "attenuator", "silent recording" "speaker simulator" The topic of connecting a guitar amp to various gear to reduce or eliminate sound has been covered over and over, but if all you want is a headphone tap off your speaker line, the Weber will be fine.
