So I'm still trying to fix my live sound - it gets lost in the mix, I play direct into a DI into the mixer without going through an amp. I've gotten various ideas from many of you, so I kind of want to crystallize the choices I'm considering and see if that helps clear my head. I'm not really a purist, so analog vs digital doesn't bother me that much. The band doesn't play anything that requires much distortion, so that's not a big factor. My main bass is a vintage Rick 4001 - not that versatile, but I'll never get rid of it. Since I only play through the mixer, I would think that an amp modeler would make sense as I have none. I have a Korg Pandora PX4B, but I've never used it live, just for practice. Don't know if that's my solution right there. My budget here probably maxes out at around $300 - I'd like to stay married... Here are some of the things that are in the running: Boss GT-6B (or ME-50B) Line 6 Bass Pod (best version i can find for $) Sansamp DI New Fender Jazz (reco. by bassist at local store - Japanese import can be had for around $300) So, what would you do?
