I have been playing electric guitar and bass and church. I have been using the churchs Rolando keyboard/bass amp so far. I have 2 cantatas that I will be playing in where I will be playing with a small orchestra and will be running direct to board. My budget is $300 (I know thats not much). I want to know which route is the best for the money. Buy a combo with a DI, or head with a line out and DI, or a preamp. Looking for a big round sound.
I play an Fender am P-bass > Zoom B1x> Roland combo
I wasn't very clear sorry. I am looking to build a small rig to be able to take to places that is versatile. Not worried about the watts because it will be direct in to board. For $300 what is the best thing to buy. Ex. The small carvin amp for 299 looks like a great di with monitor. Or do l buy a amp head that has a great di and either use ear buds or just use a good preamp and run with my zoom b1x and use ear buds.
