Fender Super Bassman XLR Out
I had a gig lately, playing with two other bands. We agreed to use my Fender Super Bassman Top as it is a nice sounding amp..
Now the soundguy split the signal right after our respective pedalboards to the amp and his mixing desk (PA). He wasn't a very nice man to say the least. I was a bit bugged because I use the overdrive channel for distortion and of course that distortion never reached the PA as the signal was drained to it before that so only I would've had the sensation of it.
Luckily I brought my Bass Big Muff with me so I could at least add distortion but not really the one I would've liked the audience to hear. Because the guy was seriously not in a good mood I didn't dare asking if he could use the XLR out of the Bassman.
So the question goes to you. Would they usually do that? It is kind of crucial for me because I like the slight compression of the clean channel (which I always drive pretty hot as well and I do not own a compression pedal) and the overdrive of the other channel.
I suggest you reconfigure your pedalboard in such a way that, if your amp were to self-destruct, you would have the necessary tools on hand to send an acceptable signal to the mixer and/or secondary amp. Given your description, here's an example...YMMV:
Tuner > Compressor > FX (chorus, OD, etc) > EQ > DI
Set the gain and this pretty much becomes a constant...IOW, throw this in front of any amp or connect to any mixer and you'll be 95% there. Soundguys love this sort of thing.
