Hi, I'm new to the forum and new to playing Bass. I've been playing for about 3 months now. I currently use an old Crate practice amp, but I live in an apartment and the neighbors hate it when I turn the volume even a little louder. I've tried using the headphone out on the amp, but it sounds really bad. So I want to make some sort of headphone rig. Here's what I've considered so far: 1. Get a better practice amp and use the headphone out 2. Use a direct injection box, like the Behringer BDI21 in conjunction with a headphone amp, like the Behringer MICROMON MA400. 3. Use a small mixer which has a built in headphone amp (not sure if this will even work). 4. Use a multieffects pedal with a headphone out. One's available in music stores near me are the Korg AX3B and Zoom B1 or B2. Given that I'm just starting out, I dont want to spend too much on the setup as I want to upgrade once I get better. I'm into all kinds of music, but I don't see myself using too many effects - I think something to model different amp sounds might be better. Does anyone have any experience/comments/opinions on any of the above setups? Thanks.
