How do I get a more ballsy bass tone out of my Orange Crush 100.

    Hey I'm currently use a Trabren standard 5 string bass tune to A#,F,A#,D#,G. and an Orange Crush PIX CR100BXT.
    For my pedal board I have a Boss Ls-2 that splits my bass signal; on one chain is my main clean bass tone with a Mxr Compressor to a Source Audio Soundblox 2 Manta to a Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi.
    One the second chain is my distortion with a Sound Audio SoundBlox 2 OFD.
    Can anyone help a hand out on getting more ballsy tone for metalcore and melodic metal out of my amp. I have been experimenting with effect pedal but I still can't work out a setup on the amp to give me a ballsy clean tone.
    Thank AidyFaults

    I think you are trying to do too much with a small combo amp. Plus, you have two distortion pedals - one in each channel? I am not sure what you are trying to do exactly. I suggest starting with the LS-2, your bass and ONE distortion pedal and see if you can get something that sounds good to you. One channel for distortion and one channel for clean, THEN add another pedal into the chain and see where that gets you. In the end, I don't know if "ballsy tone" is magically going to come out of that combo amp. (at least what I think you want...)
