So this is my first rant but i feel it's better to get it out here than in the real world. I have recently joined a new three piece project. Drums, Acoustic/electric guitar player vocalist, and me the Bass. We have had 4 practices and after the first there was a request from the Vocalist to have he and I use a DI routed through a common mix. The Drummer has his kit miked already so that is not an issue. The guitar and vocals are going through a small Fishman amp then into the mixing board. I agreed to try this. I brought over my SansAmp DI and plugged in to the mixing board. What i noticed immediately was my low end and tone was lost and my signal was overdriving the speakers in my Sony 7506's (I was playing a Warwick Thumb 5, Eden time traveler and Accugroove tri 112 ). So I did not bitch at all during the Practice but did let my opinions by known at the end. I told the others that without an AMP i have lost tone and feel. We agreed to portico with amplification the next time... So after the last practice (today) again the request to have the next practices with headphones? Am I making a bigger deal of this than i should. Anyone else have this situation and what did you do? thanks for letting me vent!
