Optimum use of an Eden Pro Tour head
Very soon I am up for a multiple band gig where all bassists will use the same Eden Pro Tour rig one after the other. I'll not have the opportunity to mess w/the settings--nor do I dare, for it has a lot of knobs and I am blind and cannot even read the settings. However, what I am accustom to using consists of a dirt box or two, an EQ pedal/a line level tube EQ and a preamp put into a power amp. I'm thinking this (minus the power amp) would be a lot of gain put into the front end of the Eden head.
So I am looking for suggestions on how to best optimize my use of this amp during my stage time. Should I...
1) Plug my rack/board into the power section; absolutely bypassing the Eden's pre/EQ sections?
2) Leave out some of my gain structure (as well as some of my sound) like my preamp and line-level EQ; plugging directly into the Eden's front end?
Any opinions/suggestions would be appreciated.
We're gonna play this foot stompin' music, everybody get up and groove
