At my 60 years my gigs are church gigs. A new very nice PA and sound board was installed in the church recently and they now have me using a Direct In box from the Amp out into the PA and the sound man controlling the sound mix. Previously I was punching out through the amp to get the bottom out into the room. I have put the amp on a stand about three feet high and stand directly in front of it, turned high enough that I can monitor what I am doing, but low enough that is not punching out into the room from the pit. All room sound now comes from the PA system. Obviously I can't do my chops and go out into the room to hear this, but am assured that it is the way to go. What are opinions on this? I am interested in all comments.
