Hey all. I'm a bass player in an Alternative Rock band that feature some experimental and progressive areas, and as such I use a few different pedals. My pedal board order and list is as follows. Bass (Fender Blacktop Jazz) -> Korg PitchBlack -> EHX Bass Soul Preacher Comp -> Sansamp BDDI (I use this set up as a light overdrive/EQ, i.e. with the intent of going into my amp, not as a standalone DI) -> EHX POG2 (used for a subtle sub boost during chorus's/Heavy parts) -> Boss ODB-3 (used for grindy distortion) -> EHX Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi (used only a few times on songs)-> Bass Whammy V -> Ampeg SVT-II Pro For a quick easier to read version: Bass -> Tuner -> Comp -> Sansamp BDDI -> Distortion -> POG2 -> Fuzz -> Whammy -> Amp. I LOVE the sound that I get. I routinely get lots of comments and interest in my tone live, and whilst I'm very very aware its definitely not everyones cup of tea and very genre specific, I'm proud of it. My struggle is that when I'm unable to use the ampeg live and having to use a DI (for example the sound guy not being keen on Mic'ing the cab, or not wanting me to crank it). The Sansamp is set up that its being used as an EQ/Overdrive, and not for a FOH sound. I've tried using it at the end of my chain with all the effects going into it, but Distortion and fuzz sound absolutely nasty and ratty as hell through it, and just changing the order of where its placed in the first place changes my sound which I'm not keen on. So because I have my amp in a rack, I'm thinking of buying the Sansamp RBI to run all my pedals into, and then setting the EQ to be as close as realistically possible to my ampeg with any rattyness dialed out and having this be sent to FOH as my DI signal, and then running the uneffected output into my ampeg and using it as normal. Would this work? Or would you guys suggest any other alternatives? (ideally 1U sized for a rack) sorry for the long message! Thanks!
