Hullo All- I know there are bushels of threads on this topic, but I just want to ask directly about my set up... My instrumental three-piece is heading to the studio tomorrow night, and I AM going to be using two rigs to split the tones. However, I was hoping to see what folks might advise on a few details. How I have been running it it as follows: Fender P-bass > Morely ABY as the splitter...>> Clean tone: Diamond Bass Comp Jr. > Ampeg SVT-II > Ampeg 410HE/15EN Overdrive tone: Keeley Bassist Comp > Fulltone OCD (I know, I know...) > Tech 21 VT Bass > Mesa Subway+ DI > Ampeg SVT-7pro > Mesa Subway 210/115. The result is mighty huge and ferocious, but it is only in our practice space setting... Now, I also have two Bergantino HD112s that I was considering instead of the Mesa cabs, seeing as how I have more that enough thunder from the SVT rig (which I plan on using no matter what). They seem to be punchier for the dirt effects. Eh? I know some conventional wisdom states that one should use the big tubes as the dirt and the SS (Class D hybrid) as the clean, but I think the SVT-II (non pro) sound amazing, and since there is no gain knob, I would have to use one of the pedals or earth-quaking volume to get the break up, so... no? OR, do I use the Mesa Subway+ with the SVT-II? Also, I am having trouble dialing in the OCD v.1.7, in that it really does seem to lose a significant amount of bottom, however, if I am going for the overdrive on this 'channel', does that even matter? I understand that its 'whatever sounds best to me', but I have run out of time to mess with all of the combinations at realistic volumes here at home. Plus, its just plain fun to see what combos folks might come at me with... Well... those are the ingredients, what would your recipe be? What say you!? Cheers!
