Yes, but it's not really practical. You can use a 2:1 transformer to drive the speakers in parallel (i.e. 4 Ω mode), but such an extra transformer is unwieldy and may well colour the sound substantially†. You will lose 50% power. That may sound like a lot, but this is actually only a 3 dB reduction – if you've ever used a mixing console you'll know that it's ...

The Fender 15B is a bass amp. Bass amps are usually focused on clean signal replication and most do little to color the sound of the instrument whereas guitar amps impart more tonal signature to the sound. As you are looking for distortion I assume you are not using a bass as this this effect is rarely used by bassists. If you are playing an normal 6 ...

I have four things that I use regularly... 1) Trio - You play a progression into it, then it plays back a bass and drum backing track in a selected genre and the key that you played in. 2) Beat Buddy - A sadly named piece of equipment, but awesome drum backing track pedal. 3) Line 6 Amplifi - Check it out. Can totally model sound and plug any of the above ...

Get a more traditional amp like a fender rumble and then turn up your gain and overdrive for more distortion. The way people usually turn up distortion in the middle of a song is by turning up the bridge pickup.

You have a few issues there. I'll go for the obvious ones: you are taking too much time to change notes you are stopping a note before you play the next one you aren't using a compressor Practice sorts out those first two - timing your pick hand and fretting hand will make a major difference. Slash plays some notes as hammer-ons and pull-offs as well. A ...

While any latency does upset the feedback loop between ears-brain-fingers, you can of course work around this through practice. You could probably become proficient without being able to hear the sounds at all. Sure, it could slow down learning until your brain has come to terms with the latency delay, but as you still have the physical touch feedback from ...

Different amps have different types of line-out. An early modification for Fender amplifiers was to fit a 'tap' out of the preamp, by splicing an output between the preamp and power amp sections. Before master volume controls were standard this allowed a Fender amp to be run at a cleaner setting, and then bolstered to concert volume using another power amp. ...

You can if it's a line out jack, as it will be a line level output and is made specifically for the purpose of taking the output of the amp section (not cab) and connecting a different cabinet or recording etc. Be careful that you select the appropriate line level on the interface, or Bad Things could happen (most likely a weak signal, worst case a damaged ...
