About a year and a half ago the bandleader made the announcement that we would be moving towards in-ear monitors and encouraged me to move to a smaller amp that we could DI out of and push through the PA. I dug in my heels and said I was good the way things were with my larger amp and if they decided to axe stage monitors altogether I would be fine; I started gigging in the 90's without them and I can still get the job done. Last gig was kind of disastrous as I watched the BL and soundguy frantically get things set up and working for everyone. I felt kinda bad about it and figured the best thing I could do is fall in line. For amps I figured something like the GK MB series amps would be a good pick. I can play it with my upright in jazz gigs and still get a decent stage sound out of it. It won't be a 4x10 but it'll get the job done. But in-ear monitors are the one that troubles me. I was warned ahead of time that they tend to have very little bass response. Am I getting myself in a situation that I'm going to hate? Are there some in ears that are better than others? What should I be aware of as I go down this path?
