Hi folks. Here's my question: I am running 4 basses, 2 active and 2 passive, through a tube preamp, into a Bassman 100. I was thinking about running a Pod through the effects loop, as this would enable me to have a few channels for eac instrument, but equalize the output levels before the ampstage. Then, my EMG loaded bass is the same volume as my passive 60's reissue, at the flick of a switch. My question is, is there such a thing as too much preamp? This setup would mean 2, sometimes 3 preamps before the amp section! I know I will have to watch my gain structure, but am I going to be sounding like I'm playing next to Niagra Falls?
