I'll be honest, I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to live and studio work. I mostly play at home (for kicks) and have only recorded into Cubase SE. Now, I'm finally getting it together to hang up my headphones and get out there and make some NOISE! The question is: Will a Tech 21 SansAmp Programmable Bass Driver plugged directly into the rehearsal room's PA, give a better range and quality of tone than using the output from my Hartke Kickback 120w amp & Bass POD combination? Or, is the SansAmp not really designed to be used in this way? As I said, a bit of a "newbie" question, but I can't think of a better bunch of people to answer it (as none of you will be trying to sell me something, like they would be in my local music store). By the way, I'll be playing indie/rock style music using a '70's P Bass and a StingRay and, tone-wise, I want to bring out the bite and growl of these two bad boys. All views welcome!
