    Hi, I'll produce a live record and DVD project next month where I play bass guitar and upright, both running trough ADL tube DIs. I'd like to add some air and ambience to the upright on mix by re-amping it. My question if there's someone that did it before and what kind of speaker and/or amplifier (Combo etc.) is better to do that kind of thing.
    Thanks in advance and apologies for my bad english

    I have, and I just ran it through my rig most of the time: early nineties ampeg SVT CL [there are a few differences between this and the current SVT CL] and a musicman audiophile 2 X 12" 1X 6" cab. Other times I have run it through a mesa [tube] power amp into a bagend 12" full range cab.

    No matter what you run it through though I would recommend that you get a RE-amp unit.

    Forgive my ignorance, but what does that mean?
    What is a RE-amp unit?

    Hi Francis, thanks for reply and I did put some other information on my profile. I guess Aaron meant something like the Millennia TD-1 Recording Channel.I'm already aware of that and I guess that the studio where the project is going to be mixed have several units.

    Those are cool and will most likely do the trick, but what I meant was a Reamp http://www.reamp.com/ sorry about the hyphen.

    There are cheaper ones out there. They are generically called a "line level shifter".

    Hummm... nice tip Aaron! I didn't know about Reamp. Thanks!
    I'll get one of these boxes and hook it up with an Euphonic combo amplifier to get an acoustic like tone.
