When I'm playing gigs I allways get the soundman to take a line out from my amp (SWR Bass750), and I have the switch set, so it includes the preamp tube. I thought this would be the best solution, But after reading several threads on DI's it seems that amp lineouts aren't regarded the best solution. Am I cheating myself for a better sound through the stock DI's they have at the venues we play, or is this solution good enough. I've never had any complains over noise, and the soundguys seem happy enough. Any thoughts?
