Any Dug Pinnick or King's X Fans?

Any Dug Pinnick or King's X fans visiting here? You might find interesting what I've been working on today. I imagine my band will cover 1-2 KX songs, so I needed to set up my bass rig in order for it, as well as some other heavy music. I'm a firm believer that blending clean & distortion channels is the way to go. Anyway, here's how I think the signal path will end up.

Bass --> A/B/Y

A --> SansAmp Bass Driver DI --> Behringer Powerplay Pro-XL (left channel - for signal routing)
                           (parallel out)-->tuner

B --> MXR Classic Overdrive --> Behringer Powerplay Pro-XL (right channel - signal routing)

Blended Behringer Powerplay Pro-XL L & R channels --> PreSonus TubePre --> Behringer Ultra DI 100 balanced output --> Front of House

                       DI through --> QSC RMX 1450 --> custom 1x10" cab/1x10" + 1x15" cab

This seems like it's going to quite a versatile setup. I can get various levels of dirt without a lot of tap dancing, and no matter what I retain a deep bottom. Now I just have to put together a pedal board for it. Perhaps I'll wait just a bit since I expect the number of pedals will be expanding.

Anyone else have any cool split signal chains for bass? Lemme hear from you.

Rock on!
