Hey guys, I'm onto the 5th round of experimentation with the setup of my Mesa 400+ rig. I usually run my MM Stingray 5 thru the Channel 1 jack (Active) but now I've decided to try a new setup to separate my clean/distortion channels into the two inputs on the 400+ Take a look: MM Stingray 5 (Active) -> Tech 21 Sansamp RBI -> [Sansamp Out -> 400+ Ch 1] [Unaffected Out -> Boss TU-2 -> Distortion Pedals -> 400+ Ch 2] This way I can use the tuner to mute the Ch2 when I dont need it, and kick it in at the right times, blending the combination of clean Sansamp bottom-end and distorted chao. But I was wondering if Ch2 is the hotter input, maybe running an active bass with such a distorted/boosted signal into what should be a passive input is good/bad for the amp? I really like this setup, the tone is insane (like 2 rigs in one!) but I dont want to be overloading the preamp. Could just switch the inputs too - any ideas? Thanks!
