FDP Forum / Fender Amps: 1985 - Current / Question about jumping both channels of an amp

I have a late 80's two channel Fender Princeton Chorus. Can the channels be jumped together without hurting the amp, and if so, how would I do it?




Why do I keep fixing things that work?

If it is the older stereo Princeton Chorus (40 watt), it is solid state and the channels can't be jumpered. If I remember correctly, one input is high gain and the other is a padded input for active pickups, as not to overdrive the input section of your amp. If you overdrive the input on that amp, it sounds really harsh and crappy.
The amp that did this are the Power Chorus and I think the Deluxe 90, which had a mode button to do this.
That is a great little amp and used mine for quite a few years.

Yea, there's no jumperable version of that amp I've ever seen.

It's channel-switching, not two independent channels.

You are both right, now that I think about it!
