Something to plug my BG and my EUB into.

    As the title says I'm after something to plug my BG and my EUB into, so I don't have to unplug one from my amp, to plug the other in. Something that won't affect my sound.

    My amp is a single channel Genz Benz Shuttle 3.0.

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section !

    Thanks.

    This will likely be moved to the "Effects" or "Misc" forums, but if you have no volume issues and just need a box to switch bass inputs, a simple A/B splitter box 'aught to do the trick. However, if there's impedance issues between your EUB electric upright and electric bass, you might have to spring for a more expensive "Direct Box" that's basically a mini-mixer you can plug multiple instruments into, balance gain issues, and gives you multiple in-and-outputs among many other things.

    A simple A/B box is what you're looking for.

    I'd put this in either effects or amps.

    I use a PreSonus TubePre to deal with my impedance issues.

    Signal chains go like this:

    Ergo EUB --- TubePre --- A/B --- AMP

    Electric Bass --- effects ---^

    Allows me to keep the volume even between the two, and keep the amp itself pretty much free of any EQing. I keep my amp as clear as possible for the upright, and use the effects portion to EQ the electric.

    I've used a Radial Bassbone to great effect. Like an A/B box, but with preamp and effects loop. Works very slick.
