I mostly play a passive P-bass, and I use a JDI for my DI. While the JDI has been great and has never let me down, soundmen always ask me for more signal. I just shrug my shoulders and tell them that's all I got, and they turn up the input trim and it's all good, never had a problem and my sound has always been great. But since I'm only using one of the channels on the F2B into my power amp, I thought I might try using the unused second channel in front of the JDI (like in the title of this thread...Bass > F2B > JDI > FOH). That way, I can give the soundman all the signal he wants, and perhaps also get some of the tubey goodness of the F2B into the FOH. Of course I would still set the tone controls on the DI'd channel as flat as possible. What do you think? Pros? Cons?
