I play in a rock covers band using my 1x15" speaker Ashdown EB 180 for the small pub gigs we do and DI it into an FBT bass bin for the larger function venues we play. I play a Fender Precision Lyte through this. In a few weeks I have been asked to stand in as bassist for a 7 piece folk/rock band at a small festival gig. I must confess to being completely ignorant to the technical side of gigging etc (hence joining this forum to learn from all you enthusiasts!) and haven't had much experience gigging where I haven't used the bass bin or my own P.A. So, I am wondering if my Ashdown 180 alone will be loud/punchy enough for this gig given the size of the band. Presumably it would be DI'd through the P.A? Any advice would be much appreciated. Perhaps it is time I upgraded but I really like the size/portability and general sound of the Ashdown.
