    Mods, there is a reason why I put this in Setup, but move it wherever.


    My setup before my folks got me this new drum machine was bass to input, patch bay send to pedals, pedals to patch bay return.

    The drum machine does not have an input. My bass head is a Gallien-Krueger Backline 250, with only one inport jack. For some reason, when I tried bass to pedals to input, and drum machine to patch bay return, I got a really fuzzy sound (It actually sounded kind of cool though).

    Anyone see any solutions?

    I think you're either going to need a Y-cable (two female to a single male connector -- I like those odds ;) ) or an ABY switch. I had the same thing going into my GK 400RB-III through a Morley ABY and no problemo.
