I play bass in my church for a Gen X service(mostly light rock,and folk,with a drummer,and guitarist), and i am thinking about upgrading from the Peavey i have right now. My problem is two-fold: 1. How big is too big? The drummer and i have talked about starting a more rock/funk group ourselves, and i know the Peavey won't cut it. Yet i don't want to overpower everyone during the church service. i do send a preamp signal to the PA, but it just doesn't cut it onstage, since i am right next to the drummer. 2. I am currently in college, and on a tight budget, so as much as i would love to buy an ampeg, or SWR rig, it ain't in the budget. So i need something reasonable, that will get the job done for both church and any future work i might do. any advice would be greatly appreciated.
