    well, maybe just a DI box in between an xlr (from the board) and 1/4 inch from your Gtar?

    Normal 1/4" to 1/4" guitar cable from the bass to the DI. Normal XLR to XLR mic cable from DI to snake. The snake should have XLR inputs. The soundman will tell you which snake connection he want you to connect to.

    That's the one I use. I would recommend it.

    If you ever also wanted to power a bass amp on stage, you can run a normal guitar cable from the DI to the amp. On the radial this is labeled the "Thru" jack.
