Ok. After months and months of reading that the best way to get a really good distorted sound without losing the low-end is the have two amps, one running clean and the other dirty, I had an idea. Since most venues that I have played use a direct box for the bass and then mic the guitar amps, this shows that the have the ability to do both to me and my bass setup. So I was just wondering if I could set up something like this. Bass --DI Box--Effects pedal--amp with a mic in front of it Then just run both signals equally or however they seem fit. I'm sure that this does not appeal to most soundmen, since it adds an extra line into the mixer but with my band being a three-piece I think that I would be ok. What do you guys think?
