Hi, I've recently purchased a Mapleglo 4003 which is great, I'm looking to try rickosound but with one amp, has anyone successfully achieved this using a small mixer or similar to recombine the 2 signals after they have been processed separately. My amp is only single channel.
Many thanks in anticipation
Lefty Steve

You can route the two stereo channels via different effects and then re-combine them with a mini-mixer, if you wish. I don't know if there is a 2-into-1 effects pedal, but if not, there sure should be!

I do something different; I split the mono signal after my SansAmp and run it straight to one amp and via an effects loop to another.

Hi, thanks for the reply, since I posted I bought a small simple behringer 4 into 1 minimixer which powers via my ashdown pedalboards power supply. I routed each rick o sound output to a separate input channel and the level controls balance the signal to be sent to the amp. It works far better than I expected, no colouration of the signals, minimal (if any) noise, I can vary the balance to bias towards either pickup, and also I can process each pickup separately. All in all a good result.
An added bonus is I could also have 2 more basses plugged into the remaining 2 channels, and then changing instrument would not require any unplugging, just a turn of a couple of knobs.
Cheers Steve
