Page 15 of the Blue Tube DP v2 manual states that "An active instrument has an internal preamp and should be plugged into a line input rather than an instrument input."There are no line inputs on the Blue Tube DP v2.  Would the 20 dB pad switch solve this problem??

Yes. The 20 dB pad should provide enough gain reduction to use the instrument input. An alternate solution would be to connect to a direct box and use the mic input.
