im going to level with you. I want 3 different preamp/distortions in my bass chain 1) because why not? 2) they look killer 3) they sound fantastic 4) blend them all for MOAR BASS TONEZ !? Im planning on getting a Trace Elliot Transit B and a Darkglass B7K Ultra to partner with my Darkglass X ultra. So: plan is: Wireless > Tuner > Trace Elliot Transit B > Cali76 > Noise Gate > ABY Splitter \ X Ultra >> Radial Mix 2:1\ ......................................................... = FOH ................../ B7K Ultra >Radial mix 2:1/ Kind of thinking i will treat the Transit B like an extension of the onboard Bass EQ that also takes on that Trace Elliot colouration before it then hits the rest of the chain. Its why i am thinking Cali 76 etc after it So 3 preamps/distortions working together being blended and summed together into one output going to FOH. The darkglass Ultra's will also use 2 different Darkglass IR's being blended here too. The only thing that will probably be giving plenty of gain will be the X Ultra. The B7K and Trace will be a mix of purely clean or slight grit. So its not like im going to have 3 distortions cranked all together. Overkill? or insanely awesome idea for ultimate Ba$s ToNeZ ? The trace also has a bass boost button for bossted sub frequencies (killer) and another button for their iconic pre shape EQ which gives that scooped slapp bass sound i can turn on/off when the parts in the songs need it. The darkglass pedals will be always on, set and forget.
