Title: Running my Valve amp with Generator
Post by: ajmsrv on January 21, 2014, 09:03:40 PM
I am wondering how safe it is to run my HRM 50 with Clator with a power generator, can or will it damage my amp. Any help greatly appreciated as I have a gig this weekend outdoors.
Regards Al

You're going to need to be assured a power regulator or power conditioner.

Most low-cost generators, like those for construction sites, deliver "dirty power" inconsistent voltages, surges, sags, and lots of line-level sine wave distortion. Dirty power can ruin devices like computers, televisions, etc.; with guitar amps the issue is noise. Guitar amps are primitive designs with low and weak filtering because heavy filtering makes amps too stiff and "hi-fi."
