I have heard that the RAT sounds very good for bass, except it drains alot of low end. Well I have an idea, and wanted to know if this would work. I have an all tube Fender Bassman 135, with 2 nonfootswitchable channels (bass and normal), with two inputs on each. The #1 inputs have more gain than the #2 inputs. For some reason, the normal channel has better tone and more bass than the bass channel. Could I plug my bass into Input 1 of the normal channel, hook an instrument cable from input 2 into the input of the RAT, and hook another cable from the output of the RAT into Input 1 on the bass channel? Would this give me a good overdrive without sacrificing bottom, since the dry signal would be going into the normal channel, which has tons of bottom, and the RAT would be going into the bass channel, which actually has less bottom? Have I lost you yet?
