Ok, so this has been bugging me for a while. I currently use a TurboRAT for grindy, crunchy distortion tones. However, this causes some low end loss, and I am sucked out of the mix. I've tried boosting volume and low end, but nothing. I just can't get heard with the lower notes, higher octave notes aren't much of a problem as I can be heard. I would assume a blender may help to keep my low end, and help me be heard. Would this be right? And if so, can someone suggest a fairly cheap but effective blender? I'm leaning towards a Barge Concepts VB-jr. Many thanks.
