    Listening to Tosin talk about his done but then hearing how silly the open low 8 sounds clean got me thinking that maybe the right amp for the higher strings isn't the right amp for the lower.

    What if we had a way to send different strings to different amps?! You'd lose the string interaction that effects the tone of the preamp but maybe you gain a whole new approach to guitar tone?

    Is it just my add talking or could this be an interesting approach for improved extended range tone?

    Look at why people use more than one amp, or why it's common to split the bass DI in metal. Granted it's not the same thing, but it's still a similar idea; you're processing different frequency ranges individually.

    Per string output would be weird, but you could biamp your signal. It was a pretty common technique to run a really gainy mesa alongside a less distorted plexi. Getting articulation while still having girth.
