  • TD-10/TD-6 Amplification

    Hello gang

    I have an issue been bugging me for a few weeks, should I buy a specific pre function amp such as a ROland Cube or a Stagg wedge monitor to amp up for spare room play only or buy a Hifi amp to run my Gale monitor speakers in true Stereo via my Mac G4 ?

    I guess it's home studio monitors Vs Stage amp ?

    Thought or suggestions welcome as always folks?

    I go with home studio monitors...
    "Custom" kit: Started with a TD-3 set. Then added TD-6V Module and a PDX-8 for snare, using 4 pd-8 pads for toms, CY-5 for Hi Hit, 2 Crash, 1 Ride (all CY-12). Using stock kits and vExpressions packs.

          I would say none of the above. The transients generated will fry your speakers ...... anything less than a 12" driver will sound dreadful and not last very long...... even then it needs to be good quality ie, i bought a Carlsbro 15" powered wedge thingy, foolishly thinking it would be perfect ( 15" + horn, 400 watts ) .................... 1/2 way through 1st rehearsal it just started farting , then stopped.......... took it back and bought 2 Mackies.

            Hi Steve

            Good point but I am spare room only and were talking less that 100w tops the speakers I have are Gale Monitor Gold Mk2 with cross over's and bass drivers so should be able to cope with mid level driving?

                I would use a keyboard amp you will get better all round sound from one of these. I have used a Behringer K3000FX and in your spare room you would never be able to have it more than a quarter turned up anyway. you could even gig in a small room or pub with one of these or take to practice sessions.....duncs
