    Hey there, I've been rocking a super simple rig, an Eden WTDI into a Crown XLS1002, for a while now, and I bought a EHX Bassballs on a whim yesterday, and I was just curious as to how y'all would set it up.
    Bass>WTDI>Bassballs> Power
    Or
    Bass>Bassballs>WTDI>Power?

    Thanks in advance.
     
  2. The latter will probably work best to get enough go juice to the crown.

    Yeah I would go with the second choice as well. Filters are almost always better very early in the chain. But you can experiment and see for yourself where is best for you.

    So did it bite you? The bug?.....the effects bug....warning.....may cause swelling.... ;)

    Yeah, put the 'bassballs' first. With your setup, the WTDI is acting as your bass preamp, so any & all effects should go in front of the WTDI.
