    I have the following gear:
    Fender Jazz bass (with 60's jazz bass pickups and a Badbutt bridge)
    Boss GEB-7
    Boss TU-2
    Sansamp DI
    (more effects to come)
    Carvin PB-200

    I use the amp as a monitor and run through the DI on the SansAmp. I usually run this in the effects loop. The only problem with this is that if I need to adjust the volume of my amp, it affects the signal, since it controls the preamp output. I want my effects to go through the house too. Would it be better to go straight to the sansamp, GEB-7 and then to an ectra direct box?
