    Im not sure this is the correct place for this but I couldn't find anywhere else to put it.

    I have been playing bass on and off (more off) for many years and used mainly combos. I have recently become a bit more professional with my gear and have the following :

    Trace Elliot GP12SMX Preamp
    Trace Elliot RA300 (High)
    Trace Elliot PPA1200 (Low)
    Trace Elliot 4x10
    Trace Elliot 2x15

    Gibson Grabber (1973) - It still works ...!

    Boss GT6B

    Ok I have almost sorted all the issues with cross over and high and low pass etc etc ....

    So some questions. I can never seem to get enough gain from my trusty old Gibson... It just doesn't seem to drive the preamp I always get the increase gain light and never the OK light. The Bass is passive - anything I am doing wrong here? - Is it possible to raise the pickup on a grabber?

    The effects - I have always used a CE2 Chorus but recently splashed out on the GT6B (seemed like a good idea at the time). I have always had my effects in line but the preamp has loops for this. I am not sure how I should connect this. It would be nice to use the stereo effects that this thing can produce. How do I wire it?

    Thirdly - Full range or split high and low. Whats the best?

    I am experimaenting with all this at the moment so please fogive my ignorance.

    Cheers - Paul
