The new band I'm in is all about these in ear monitors. I tried 'em on one gig. Couldn't hear my stage volume or tone worth a damn, and the tone of my bass in my ears left alot to be desired. Question: would you be willing to try them yourself, or would you have a definite policy or feeling about it either way? My other option is to use a hot spot monitor and I have never tried those before. Anyone? My high standard for quality of tone from my bass on the gig is the conflicting factor. I wasen't sure which forum to post in so pardon this if its a near miss. Thanks.
