    Hi, i play a warwick bass through an SWR bass stack at the moment. One of my mates has recomended the bass pod pro, i know its pretty good for recording direct into computers and studio setups but how would it fit in with my amp would i be able to go into the pod then route into the amp head and then into the cabinets? if so would i benefit in anyway when playing live, or what would it do to my over all setup??

    Ooops - slipped. I meant to sling this to "Effects", since we don't have a "Crappy Overpriced Effects" forum. ;)

    You could do it a couple of ways. You could go into the POD and then into the amp's input or you could go through the effects loop of your head. It's really up to you to decide if you gain anything as far as tone. You'd want to turn off the cab emulation when running through a real amp so it's really just a matter of deciding if you like the POD's amp models combined with your amp's natural sound. When I do jazz gigs I use a behringer v-amp (similar to POD in setup and somewhat in sound) plugged into the input of a 1x10 combo. It really does improve the sound and gives me more flexibility as far as tone. If your amp already sounds good it probably wouldn't really help though.

    Yeah, I am quite sure the POD works in a 110 combo just fine.

    If that is all you ever play through, and as loud as you need to be, then the POD may be a good fit for ya.
