Signal too hot for pedals
« on: April 11, 2018, 09:42:57 AM »
Hey guys!

I read somewhere(can't remember where) online that wurlys signal is too hot for guitar effects pedals and that it will burn them out.
Whats the truth to this? How can you correct it?

Thanks!

Just use the Aux out and not the Headphone out

Neither my 120 or my 206 chop have an aux out. I play them out of the piano amp into a DI box, either a ProCo CB-1 or ART ZDirect 1 ($29 of brilliance!) Knocks the signal down for pedals/amp or directly into the board.

120, 206 Chop, Baldwin, Gulbransen, Nord & Yamaha digitals, Antigua Strat, Selmer Mk VI, 10M Naked Lady, etc...

Your 206 chop needs only a few components for aux out. All you need is like 2 resistors, shielded cable, and a 1/4” jack of course. The 206A is a different story.
