Bud has two identical pre-amps, each with independent EQ, separate FX
loops, independent reverb, full 48 volt phantom power and an input
gain control to adjust for different pickups. There’s also an
auxiliary input on channel 1 so that whatever you are using it for
can be EQ’d separately from your instrument signal. Channel 2 has a
bright switch for instruments that need more high end push.
is a balanced XLR out on the back of the amp which is post-EQ,
post-reverb and both channels summed – meaning the signal you’re
sending the house (or mixing console, or other amplifier, etc…) is
the same signal you’re hearing from the speaker! For pre-EQ and
individual channel output the FX loop send/returns can be used.
you need more sound pressure, there is a parallel extension speaker
output to make full use of The Bud’s output power. The Bud can
drive a 4x10 bass cabinet with no problem at all, and if you plug a
1/4″ dummy plug (headphone adapter plug) into the headphone jack,
it defeats the internal speaker but leaves the extension speaker out
live. Did we mention there’s a headphone jack?
possibilities are nearly limitless, all from an amp so tiny you won’t
believe your eyes, but you will believe your ears.
