Someday I want exactly that setup... a 15" in a cab, two 12"s in a cab, a good power amp, and preamps for each era - an SMS for 68-72 and John Kahn, an F2b for 73-86ish, an SWR Grand Prix (out of production) for 87ish-95. With the two-output setup you describe I could run the neck pickup through something cleaner like the F2B and the bridge through the SMS with a little more dirt.
Sigh... ok, back to earth.
That Free-Loader looks sweet! Hmmmm, how about one of those per pickup, then to a blend knob (could I use a passive one in this case, like the 8th or 9th one from the top here?: http://www.bestbassgear.com/pots.htm#
Then to a master volume and single output
. Yes, I'm sorry I'm lame... one output for me, please! For now, anway.
So that would give me the controls of Volume, Blend, Load Controller, Load Controller, then the switch which can do... what? I don't know. Maybe switch one pickup to out-of-phase? Just for special effects during Space?
I don't find passive tones to be all that helpful so I don't mind not having them... but I could put one in the current out-put jack hole and move the ouput to the body edge the way Phil did.
Hey, Brad... how much for one or two Free-Loaders, voiced for bass and with no cases? If this is a good idea, that is...
