I've been enjoying playing in a community theater production of an old time gospel show. I have not been using any mic or pickup and my bass is strung with guts. I'm on the stage. The show is in a High School cafe with a decent stage. During opening night, an upright bass player in the audience said he would have liked to hear more bass. Director said he can't mic me (not sure why) and suggested I bring an amp. I have an old GK MB 200 and a Realist. I'm positioned at the back of the stage. I have a hunch that I'm present during most of the time. I think the issue occurs when the actors move to the front of the stage (where mics are placed) they block the acoustic sound. Also the vocal mics might be picking up the bass when they are not being used by the vocalists. Will the amp help? Any other tips?
