Hello my fellow bassist's, I am currently gigging with a Fender rumble 350 combo which is very loud but is lacking in the eq shaping department. When my band plays larger venues I need to put it through our PA system which is unfortunatly run by my drummer. The sound is pretty decent in smaller gigs but when I go through the PA I get that crappy straight through the board sound which would be great if I were in a Steely Dan cover band. I really like the sound of the Sansamp VT but it does not have an XLR out on the basic model and I dont have the cash for the deluxe version and dont have the time to wait for the new one. My question is (finally) If I hook up the VT through my effects loop will it get picked up using the XLR out on my amp ? If so are there any negatives using the loop as opposed to the regular bass input ?
