I recently bought Alesis Strike Amp 12 for my E-drums and I having a real hard time when I want to connect my phone to it - I have no idea what cable to use.
Whenever I want to connect my phone using a TRS 1/8 jack connected to my phone and a 1/8 to 1/4 TRS adapter jack connected to the AMP, I have a terrible sound - I don't really know how to desribe it, but for example I almost don't hear the vocals - I'm not a technical kind of person, but I guess some channels in the cable are connected together when they shouldn't be.
If I do the same thing, but using a TS guitar cable (with 1/4 to 1/8 adapter to connect to phone) the sound is good.
My dad made me a cable that's standard 1/8 jack to connect to phone and a 1/4 TRS jack to amp that only has 1 channel connected to Tip and ground to sleeve - ring totally disconnected and it works OK.
So I'm wordering whether I should just use a TS mono cable or what, as the specs and manual included to the AMP says, that sockets for jacks on the amp accept TRS cables. Sorry, if my description is not clear, but I'm not a technical person and I'm not a native English speaker.
Thank You in advance!
