    I'm trying to blend a clean and distorted signal with a boss ls-2 to sound similar to this



    I will buy a rat but using a generic distortion for now.
    I'm running through two 7 band bass specific equalizers, one on clean and one on distorted.

    +/- 15db boost/cut at frequencies 50,120,400,500,800, 4.5k and 10k

    My question is how should I configure them? Should I have only highs feeding into the distortion like a high band pass filter and treat the clean as a low band pass filter or would I need to keep highs and lows in both?

    I also have compressor pedals at my disposal

    cheers in advance

    IMO cut above 800 on your clean and leave your distorted at your normal clean levels. That's how I like mine but it's a real personal preference thing.

    I do it around 150 hz on my Rolls crossover. If you're getting odd sounds it's probably your distortion coming back out of phase. Ls2 is missing any phase control.
