The Acoustic bass & Electric bass run into a Morely A/B switch.
The A/B switch runs into DI (direct box), for a non-effects signal.
The DI then runs into the Boss ME-50B Bass Multiple Effects Module pedal board.
The cable then outputs from pedal board into second DI (direct box) for an effects signal.
The second DI (direct box) then runs to the Epifani amp head that sits atop my Epifani speaker cabinets.
Christian uses a AMT clip-on acoustic bass mic that runs direct to the house/monitors.
