Howdy! I started playing in a 3-piece cover band, and we have a couple QSC K12s and KSub for our live sound. For the first couple gigs I tried running directly through the PA without my rig, and was really surprised at how good the bass sounded. I've been really happy with my setup (SVT-4 Pro with PR 410 HLF), but I have been considering moving to a K12 with a Tech 21 V Bass (they have a fancy website that talks about this type of setup). I would have to sell my current rig in order to make that happen. Part of my reasoning is that I now live on the 3rd floor with no elevator, and the cab takes 2 people to carry downstairs. I'm not ready to relegate it to the garage (I live in Florida...), so it is not practical to lug around. I haven't been in the market to change things up for the time I've had my rig, and it appears that a lot has changed. I'm told (by "them") that more and more bassists are migrating to the kind of setup I'm talking about, but I'm not completely sold... I would truly appreciate any thoughts or opinions, as I am truly stuck on this decision.
