Hey! I have an amp with distortoin built into it and lvoe that distortoin so I'm wondering this: On a bass DI when you plug an amp into it (off the "amp out" output) does it affect your tone ? So basically, say im running distortoin off of my amp instead of pedals, and I plug my amp into the DI "amp out" output, does that add the distortion to the sound going into the mixer or not? See what happened is, I found an 80 dollar amp and cab (traynor ts50) and it has some sweet distortion. But it only is 50 watts, so now Im plugging into both my amps (hartke b60 combo and my new-to-me halfstack). The hartke stays clean and the traynor gets a nice distorted growl that I love. So would the DI work to add that distortion to it, or would I have to mic both amps? I think I'm gonna end up getting one of those morley AB boxes, because then I can switch from clean to dirty (switch amps) real fast. only problem is I would definately have to mic both amps then I guess. Any suggestions?
