    Guys, need quick help.

    Short story: my gear is already sent to the place I'll be plain but I will only get there a few hours before the gig. I'll have the opportunity to play with 2 amps there (silverjub 25 and ac30).

    My pedal board is very simple (Archer - KoT - vibe - chorus - ad9 pro delay).

    So, the question is, if I use the wet dry out from the ad9 pro, when the pedal is disengaged will I have dual mono signal or just 1 amp will receive signal??

    Extra question is: any mods on the outputs are possible/recommendable on this pedal??

    Thanks everyone!!

    Maxon's web site says: "Topping off the AD-9 Pro are dual outputs that allow routing of the dry and delayed signals to two separate amps or mixer channels. Both outputs feature Mechanical True Bypass via a 4PDT switch."

    So it sounds to me like you get dual mono out.

    updating on this.

    I've been playing my wonderful wet dry rig for a while now. (I bought a humdigger, from gigrig to do it).

    All sounding amazing, love the feel of the two amps completing each other, many new different tones comming out of it. I recommend everybody to try, its really something else.


    Now, the new issue. Until today I had absolutely no problem with hum, and I've been playing almost everyday in the amp room (thats how I call it now), today I got there and voila! HUM FOR DAYS! I have no idea of how could such massive hum could have appeared from one day to the other in a room that was completely noise free.

    Any expert could point some troubleshooting tests I could do?

    thanks!!

    edit: just a few more details to enlighten the history.

    After that gig where I played wet dry for the first time I bough an AC-15 to complement my OR-15 and I'm a happier human now :)

    On the hum issue: is it possible a ground wire came loose during play (vibration) or moving the equipmemt?

    I havent moved the equipment, besides the guitars. would you be more detailed on the explanation? (I`m not really sure which wire would be the one ground wire).

    thanks!

    Sadly, I wouldn't be sure which one(s) it could be, either. Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will step in soon to help narrow it down.

    Sorry, gotta be honest. :smile:

    Hello Guys, Problem solved!

    All I had to do was, NOTHING. I just got back home yesterday, turned the amps on and no hum again... go figure.
