Hi everyone, I've gigged in the past, but they were always small gigs where professionalism didn't matter so much. Now, I'm finally getting back into it after a long break, and I've got some serious concerns. I have a Peavey Tour TNT combo, and a VB-2 with an Acoustic 410 cab; probably both will end up being gigged on at some point. My main bass is a Precision with a Dimarzio Model P and roundwound strings. We play mostly covers, and a large range of rock/blues/pop/funk stuff across the 60s, 70s, and 80s. I like to change my tone to suit the song - small eq adjustments, channel switches, flipping other switches on and off; obviously, my bass sound for Rush covers isn't going to work for the Beatles. How do you guys change your sound on stage for the song, especially if you use different settings throughout the gig? I could easily reach over between songs and tweak settings that way, but something about that seems a little unprofessional. That leads me to my next point. If most venues want to run bass DI, then how does my stage sound translate to the audience? Do the settings on my rig matter? How do I get the sound I want if my sound is being run through the PA and set up by someone else? I'm sorry if these are stupid questions, but I'm truly baffled and I want to transition back into the gigging world as painlessly as possible. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help out.
