yYou've spent years developing and fine tuning your sound. You've spent hundreds of $$$ on different amps and gear trying to match that bass sound you've had in your head. Doesn't it really tick you off when you get to a gig and the soundguy says, "We're just gonna put the bass through this directbox." Then they don't even want to use your direct out or mic your amp. What the hell is with that?
