Hello out there Due to my bands 'guitarist situation' I'm in need of a two stage overdrive setup to make parts of the songs heavier etc. Had my second rehearsal today with the setup posted in my signature (except for the tube-bass which i'm currently waiting for), but it sounds odd! - really! Mostly because of the two different sounding overdrives I've got. It just dosn't work out for me. This is pretty much what I'm looking for: step 1: clean step 2: light overdrive step 3: heavy overdrive So I came to think about resizing my setup by just having the following: Now for the question (drum solo): Will this give me what i'm looking for? And, won't the overall volume go insanely loud if/when I kick in the mxr booster to reach the 'heavy overdrive' level? In other words; I'm not looking for an overall volume boost, just hit the 2nd gain channel on the preamp to get the light overdrive and hit the MXR for the heavy one. I'm by no means a tube expert, the tube-bass will be the first thing I've ever had with tubes in it. Anyway, thanks a lot in advance!
