Been experimenting a bit after landing a regular gig at a fairly large venue that supplies all the backline. The house bass amp is a Warwick 150 w single 15 speaker combo with a line out to the PA. The bass stage sound is very low and almost impossible to hear above the drummer and our two guitarists. Everything is on fold back except the bass. (well its only bass, so why does it matter, Lol.) Was told that out front the bass sound is perfectly adequate, but no help to me from where Im standing. No room on stage to use my own gear, so I am stuck with it. After a couple of nights of nights wondering if I could carry on with hardly hearing what I was playing, out of desperation, I put my Sadowsky Standard 4 through my second Sadowsky stand alone pre-amp. Very little boost on the EQ, but volume up full on both. It made quite a lot of difference and I can now hear my notes a lot clearer. I know it sounds a bit like over kill, and also it goes against all the rules, but it seems to work for me. Anyone else tried anything like this?
