Hi guys, new here and new to bass actually. I've played guitar for 13 years, but tomorrow I have my first gig playing bass in my band.
Yesterday as a birthday present I got one of these: http://ashdownmusic.com/products/6/P...d-Graphic-DI-/
and I'm not exactly sure what it does! I'm sort of familiar with the concept of DI, about converting the unbalanced connection into a balanced one for connecting to a PA, so is this pedal essentially a 'replacement' for an amp/cab set up at a gig? Would I take this along with my bass to a gig, and plug directly into the PA system and use the 12 band EQ for tone shaping? I'm also guessing it can be used as a standard EQ in front of a traditional amp set up.
Apologies if this is the most obvious thing ever, but you have to understand as a guitarist, the thought of plugging straight into the PA with just an EQ is truly terrifying!
