I will be playing in the orchestra pit in a local high school musical in a few weeks. I'll be playing my acoustic bass guitar (amplified, of course). When I played it with an orchestra in the past I found I could really use some sort of monitor as it was hard to hear myself with the rest of the orchestra, and I suspect I may be in the same boat with this situation (the amp had to be in front of me or exactly next to me to avoid feedback).
I am not really playing out otherwise (though I'd like to be, and hope this might lead to some other things) and am focusing my efforts on the double bass right now, but I am interested in finding a way to hear myself in this show as cheaply as possible. (If I need something good later, or if playing out becomes a regular thing, I'll look into a better system then). I figured I could use the Line Out on my bass amp to connect some sort of monitor.
+1 if I can use whatever I use here with the pickup on my double bass to hear myself with my current orchestra.
