    So i recently got an electric drumkit and don't really have the cash for a drum amp. I've been trying to run the low end drums through my bass amp (kick drum toms) and the highs through a guitar amp (snare cymbals etc). The drum set does have two seperate outputs but im not sure how to send only some signals to each amp

    Can't you assign things left or right output?

    1. That sounds like a hassle.
    2. If your spare bass rig includes a flat amp and a relatively flat & deep bass cab, try running the whole kit through that bass rig. (In your shoes, I'd use a MarkBass LMII into a Carvin LS1503 and call it done.)
    3. You should be able to assign drums to particular outputs on your electronic drum module.

    This is what I would have suggested as well.

    What you want to do depends completely on your drum module. I used to have a Roland TD-9, it only had stereo outputs for the entire kit, but you could pan individual pieces R/L and achieve what you wanted to that way.

    Guitar amps aren't very good for amplifying anything you don't want sounding like a guitar amp.

    Idk Mr. Foxen......once upon a great while ago, I perfected a drum track by adding some guitar amp style distortion. But that was back when I knew it all, which means I had no idea what I was doing :D
