    hi everyone,
    I was wondering how I could connect my sansamp to my main amp, a fender bassman, and then have the other effects like distortion and wah on a separate amp (crate) anyone know how to wire these two things together??

    thank you

    I'm assuming you have a Sansamp RBI.....Ok-here's what i would do. The wah is the only thing that i'm not sure where it would plug in. When you said distortion i'm assuming you mean the gain on the RBI. Ok-here it goes

    On the back of the RBI, the Sansamp signal goes to whatever one you want to have the distortion, the unaffected one goes to the one that you want to have straight bass signal.

    I used to run my Sansamp RBI into the effects loop of my bassman 200 so that i would bypass the internal preamp. Now, it's racked with a power amp that has dual channels-once i get another cab I'll do the split signal stuff.

    That's all
