I'm fairly new to TB and have been enjoying reading through all of the threads. Since it seems that there are a lot of pretty knowledgeable players in here, maybe someone can help me out. I play a lot of festival type settings, open air locations with big crowds. A lot of the venues have decent sound systems with good monitors, but many do not. When the monitors are lousy, I can't hear myself clearly without turning up on stage and blowing out the rest of the band. Okay, maybe it's because I'm 2 days older than dirt and after 40 years of pounding out the funk my hearing is shot (advice to young guys .... protect your hearing), but I need to try to find an answer. So, the question is; What is a decent bass monitor that I can hook up for my own purposes? I've tried moving the amp, tipping it up, turning it around, whatever, and nothing helps. Just for info, I'm using pretty stock stuff, Hartke 3500 with a VX410 & 115, usually a Fender Jazz 5 or an Ibanez SR505. Anybody willing to help out an old guy? Thanks in advance.
