The "sportsbar/restaurant" where I've been playing almost exclusively lately has a decent PA and adequate monitors - one mix. I have been using my Eden/Bergie as a stage monitor. I have a gig on Saturday and was thinking of trying a more "direct" approach. Here's the plan. I thought I'd use my Fishman preamp/DI and a Yamaha MS202 powered speaker. I'd be through the FOH as usual, and in the monitors for the other guys. I'll use the MS202 so I can hear myself - kind of like a "HotSpot" monitor. I know it won't have bass response, and I won't "feel" the rumble, and it won't be really loud. That's not necessarily the point of a monitor. I am hoping it will be enough so I can hear what I'm doing. My rig is there from last nights gig so I do have a backup if this tanks. Have any of you tried this? Any thoughts? It'd be sweet if I could just walk in with a briefcase (tuner, chorus and Fishman pedals) my bass and a little speaker.
