    Default Silly rig for jamming at home

    Inspired by Billy Sheehan's dual outputs on his Attitude bass, I'm going to run each of my pickups to a separate output jack, then run to two Fender Rumble 15s. There's an eq setting I love that really suits the P pickup, and another that suits the J. Seems like both together should be a lot of fun.

    I'm well aware that the dual Rumble 15s are essentially toys, but if you're just playing at home and don't want to rattle the house, they sound pretty good, and are extremely affordable.

    There's some guy out there that made a splitting box so he can into 4 Rumble 25 combos

    Should be an interesting sound but will it be worth it, more useful than say
    Just using a $200 amp and blending your pickups at the bass volume controls? Only you can decide

    Chris Squire did a version of this. One pickup to a Marshall guitar amp, one to an SVT. Instant iconic sound.

    Billy Sheehan’s setup is P pickup with a high pass filter to a distorted amp, EBO pickup to a clean amp. It sounds awesome. I’m not expecting that, but it seems like it’d be fun and not cost much.

    I'd be concerned the 15 Rumbles will be able to mix sufficiently for this to be awesome. Not enough amplitude to get the mix right...

    Dug Pinnick also has an epic tone, if not as well-known, for splitting highs and lows between a guitar and bass amp.

    It’s also pretty common among doomy stoner rock bands.

    If you don't want to drill for a second jack you can just use a stereo jack instead and share the ground. Then use a stereo cable to a home made breakout box to split it. That way you have minimal change to the bass and only one cable from the instrument. Name:  Untitled.png

    I can sell you my Yamaha Attitude Custom, no mods on your current bass ;-)

    The SVT came later on. In the early 70s he used a Sunn Coliseum and Marshall Super Lead, or Fender Dual Showman.
