    I want to find out what amp configurations other TBers have used to take advantage of their Rickenbacker's stereo output. Here,s a crazy idea I've been kicking around:
    I've been playing through an Aguilar TH500 and two Bergantino CN112s for a while now. I was thinking of adding a second head, splitting the signal with the Ric-o-sound box, and going through one CN112 for the treble, one for bass, with effects and distortion on the treble.
    Is that crazy? Is these some reason it won't work? What have you done?

    Here's some videos from Amy Humphrey of Clatter that describe her Rick setup and how she utilizes the dual outputs:

    I convert 4 string Rickenbackers to 5 string basses.

    Hmm, she doesn't seem to be actually utilizing the Ric-O-sound at all, just splitting the regular signal to different amps, as far as I can tell.
