so this weekend my band played a few shows. i love getting compliments on my bass sound.... soundguy friday night: "dude, that amp sounds so good. i didnt even need to mic your cab. it is seriously the best bass sound i have heard in all the years i've been doing live sound." sounguy sunday night: "i must say, im not really into hc, but your bass sound is sick." i also said to him, that he may not need to mic me. so he argued for a few minutes with me while i set up. i kept saying, dude wait till everything is ready, you will see. so he sets up a mic and a di box. so, i plugged right in, and turned it on. he comes back over to me ten seconds after i turned on and he said, "yeah, you are right, they will hear that rumble all the way across state line(we were close to pa).
