The Palmer TINO SYSTEM - The clever solution for switching two amps to 1 cabinet
guitarists often use two amplifiers in order to obtain different basic
sounds. However, transport, space restrictions and the decrease in
output associated with PA speakers can be very inconvenient. This is
where TINO S promises to help. The switcher system allows you to use two
amplifiers with only one box as an alternative. Regardless of whether
you use tube amplifiers that require getting a load, or transistor
models. Even a mixed combination is possible without any problems.
switch-over between the amplifiers can be operated via a pressure
switch on the device or via an optional standard foot switch or
switching system. If the switch cannot be done with a switching system, a
standard foot switch can be connected to the corresponding 6.3 mm jack.
(Requires a switch, not push-buttons!)
TINOS routes the guitar
signal to the chosen amplifier, while the second unused amplifier is
turned off to prevent unwanted interference. (As if the potentiometer on
the guitar was switched off). The gain from the instrument input to
output is one (Unity Gain). The built-in buffer only converts the
impedance, so that a high-impedance guitar becomes less prone to
interference. When the guitar signal is switched, the speaker is
switched simultaneously, while the speaker output from the mute
amplifier is connected to a load (Dummy Load). Therefore, tube
amplifiers are absolutely safe from dangerous idling.
connect two amplifiers with one another, a heavy buzzing sound often
overlays the guitar signal. This undesirable effect is known as ground
loop and occurs between mains-operated devices because of double
grounding. The TWO IN ONE prevents this from happening by decoupling the
outputs to the amplifiers using high-quality isolating repeaters. A
sliding switch-over between the amplifiers also ensures that the process
occurs click-free and without interruption. The power supply is
provided via the supplied 9V power adapter.
