So I just found this precious little gem called the Sadowsky Outboard Preamp. I like the unit very much, and will now not part with it. I am stuck though on how I should run it. I know its primarily used before your head, but I'm curious about what kind of different tone you guys would precieve I would get running it in the loop. Does anyone have any knowledge about this? I must say that I love my basses passive tone, and I don't use the preamp for radical tone shapping. I use it to give me a little more "support", and "heft" at 40Hz. Now if I'm correct in my theory, you would get a more "passive" tone running it in the loop, having the bass plug directly into the amps head, and then using the Sadowsky as an extra EQ, dialing in more lows. (I have the bass knob no higher then 8 o'clock / 8:30 for just a little boost to the booty) vs. Having the Sadowsky first, then the head. Anyone? Again, the goal is to keep the tone sounding as passive as possible, but I do want to keep the Sadowskyin the chain, because I love the way it boost at 40Hz (BEST I'VE EVER HEARD) What do you guys think?
