    I play bass for my high school band my amp is not quite large enough so my band teacher hooks my bass to a direct box which is connected to an JBL EON15 G2. It seems to be woorking well but is there a problem doing this?

    Jesus. If that's your band, my mind is blown. If it's not, it's not.

    What's wrong with that song? When I was in the Bahamas last week, that's pretty much all the bands played.

    I'd have to agree with Munji here, I don't hear anything wrong with that song, and I don't see why you should be "embarassed" to play a song like it...
     
  8. No.

    It's called "playing thru a PA system"

    And, that's what most successful, working bassists do.

    Play thru a PA system.

    Nothing, I repeat, nothing, wrong with it. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
