    I'd like some sort of headphone amp to run from my (Future) amps tuner out and then in to my back pocket and up my back to headphones.
    Is this a good idea?
    Does the korg PX4B have a line out and a separate headphone out so I could use something like that for personal monitoring?

    Thanks in advance.

    Depends on what you need to hear. If you are just wanting to hear yourself, most heads with a headphone out just require a set of headphones. If you want a mix of you and the rest of the band, with independent control over the volume of each, you'll need something along the line of a headphone amp. What I use is the little Beringher 4 channel mixer, mixing a monitor send from the main board with the parallel out from my sansAmp DI. It works really well, and you can get them around $60-$80.
