Yamaha PE-200A , guitar/keyboard preamp

Unread post by Buzzard » Wed Oct 23, 2013 9:09 pm

Yamaha PE-200A

2 channel clean preamp with sound effects: Reverb, Tremolo, Auto Wah / Wah with expression pedal.

This oldie has been tampered with A LOT, and I have some difficulty figuring out which expression pedal to use.

So far I've tried a Roland EV-5 , with no luck, and a Yamaha FC7 with little effect.

The best controller so far is the output from a BOSS FV-60, but still not very good.

I'm planning to use with two Yamaha PS-75 active speakers as a hybrid guitar amp,
hoping to get a "new" vintage sound. :D

The PE-200A needs to be cleaned up, and a bit of trimming to get back to it's former glory.

ANY information, technical info, or experience with this model will be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards
Peter

After a lot of experiments with this hybrid set, I got some great clean vintage sounds,
very good with pedals too, however, it never had the mojo I was hoping for, so I sold it. <->

Some of my Yamaha amps and speaker systems use the JA-4001 speakers, that's where it's at.

That's a shame Peter. But it sounds like you gave it a good shot.

Anyway, thermionic valve amplification is where music reproduction starts and finishes. That is of course in my opinion Young Sir, being your ever so humble servant, as Uriah Heep might have said.
