IMHO of course. Not trolling or wanting to start a huge melt down here. Anyway, thanks to a couple TBers advice Ive changed the way my signal is routed and have had stellar results. I now run 1 wet and 1 dry to the FOH then, via a blender, to my amp pushing a cabinet as a monitor. Like most bassists, I have dumped a ton of money into different basses and equipment in search of the perfect tone. Cant say I wasted time because its always a learning experience, but after years of experimenting with cabinet & amp combinations I have found MY tone. No more settling! I would say my tone is a cross between Geddys Hemispheres/A Farewell to Kings tone meets Paul DAmours Undertow (especially Crawl Away) tone. If any of you are interested in an absolutely huge killer tone, here are the specifics; RIC 4003 with tone pot in (not vintage) > Radical DI XLR balanced > FOH Channel 1 (dry) Radical DI THRU > Xotic X-Blender > Sansamp Paradriver in blenders effects loop > Sansamps XLR balanced > FOH channel 2 (dirty). Also from the blender out to a Markbass SD800 amp > fEarful 12/6 cabinet as a monitor. Obviously, the RIC has everything to do with the overall tone. The Sansamp can be swapped with your favorite dirt producing overdrive/fuzz pedal. The Markbass SD800 can also be swapped with any amp to include just a poweramp because it adds absolutely no color to the end result. I like the MB SD800 because the amp is very clean. The other key ingredient without question is the fEarful 12/6. Greenboys design cabs are extremely clean so you hear exactly what the FOH blend is. No color. Besides the RIC, this has made the biggest contribution to my rig. I cannot say enough about fEarfuls. Just thought Id share. Additionally, I just acquired a Demeter HBP-1 and will more than likely run it before or in lieu of the Radical DI. The HBP-1 does not have a Jensen, so Im worried about some FOH dude hitting the phantom power button on the board and killing the HBP-1. However, I understand there is a work around by utilizing the unbalanced out from the HPB-1 to the DI pedal. This will survive a 48v kill signal. The downside is having essentially 2 DIs in the signal path.
