Where in the chain does the drive lie? Obviously at/near the beginning. Any compression before/after the drive?Yea, I've been using that parallel chain with both guitar and bass. With bass overdrive it's the only way to keep the sound fat. I still find the frequencies the overdrives operate at are more geared to guitar and not as pleasing for bass.
+1 on that low cut parameter...I've found it VERY useful when using boomy amps like the vox and mesas.
