Hi all, just set it up with an A/B foot switch ( Boss AB-2) and it works realy well and has, to my ears, a better mix, with the non fx mic channel clear and strong with the fx mixed on top. Thank you all.
For info the mic is a Neumann KMS105, which sounds amasing thro the T1 and pole. I am also able to get much higher volume before feedback because I use a optogate PB-05 http://www.optogate.com/pb05e.htm
we have 3 mics and 3 poles all with optogates which has the added effect of reducing stage sound going thro the mics.
Also I have just gigged using the Marcus Miller pre amp for the first time thro my pole....wow..I`m in hevan...the dynamic tone and valve commpressor is the best I have ever used.
Once again many thanks...Bernard
