Lehle switcher question

    Ok, long story short: I'd like to have a clean signal and a dirty signal using Lehle Sgos, Tone Hammer pedal and Darkglass B7K. I have a TH 500 amp but I would like to be able to have 2 seperate signals all the time, so I figured switching to the pedal is a better idea.
    Anyway, my idea was to use the TH as a clean signal, the B7K as a dirt signal and keep the third output free for when I need to play through a bass amp (which happens alot).
    Question is, will this work through any bass rig? The lehle has gain knobs for each channel so it'll be possible to balance the outputs.
    Thanks in advance!

    The problem with your question of "will this work with any bass rig" is that most bass rigs are not designed for mixing multiple different inputs. They may have two jacks on the front, but they are typically designed in a way that is NOT suited to mixing.

    You would need a splitter AND a mixer. Maybe add a Boss LS-2 to your toolbox.

    Bear in mind too that "SGOS" is a term Lehle uses for a bunch of different pedals; you would want to be sure you got the right one for your task.

    So I'll have to add the Boss LS-2 to the whole Lehle-TH-B7K circle?
    I should add that I also use a Smoothie, ISP Decimator and a Polytune Mini.
    It would be really cool if you could give me some more details on the whole setup since I'm quite clueless :(

    I'd go:
    tuner --> Smoothie --> splitter (Lehle) -->
    output 1 --> Tone Hammer
    output 2 --> B7K
    outputs 1 and 2 --> mixer (LS-2, SFX "Mix", or another Lehle like the 3@1) --> amp.
    If you absolutely have to use the Decimator, you could put it at the end of the chain.

    Well, I play through a Pedulla Rapture 5 but I also have a Musicman Stingray which can get pretty hissy combined with the B7K, so I'd only be using Decimator with the MM.
    Do I really need a mixer? It seems like the Lehle acts as mixer (since it has seperated gain knobs..)

    Those knobs control the volume of each output. Think about what happens when you need to plug into a typical bass amp, which is only designed to have one thing plugged in at a time.
