    I'm the bass player, not the sound guy! I used to play that place a lot, but not so much lately. Never did understand why he doesn't go direct.

    Could just be his preference. He knows the mic better than a particular di, maybe?
    When I was a drummer many years ago, a place we played in Atlanta all the time, the sound man mic'd everything, including the bass cab. Sound was always phenomenal

    Amp DI pre or post EQ is FOH preference.
    Passive/ active outboard DI takes just the
    instrument output. A bass mic supposedly picks up the tone of the cab but an sm57,
    altho a common go- to, is flat and is the least flattering of options and reflects lack of gear and/ or experience. And this is a bass forum. But you are the final word on what goes out to FOH.

    Very much appreciating the diversity of rigs displayed on this thread. Would love to actually hear these and how they vary soundwise. Recently, reconfigured older Gallien Krueger components into system I put together for rare larger concert I performed, for which my smaller rigs did not seem adequate. I needed clear, deep, warm tones, yet punchy, for a Carole King tribute concert. This system delivered a great sound, supporting the musicians and vocalists in the show, with a good low-end foundation. Pictured is a 1980s GK 800RB head, 1980s 410B cabinet, and a 1990s 210T cabinet. I bi-amped this, using the 4 ohm and 8 ohm parts of the amp to the respective speakers (410B-8ohms; 210T-4ohms), set the crossover and EQ to taste, and was most pleased, along with the other performers, sound crew and audience. Certainly, using a 1980 G&L L1000 contributed to the great sound as well. Will continue to work with this rig for larger venues, however, moving the heavy stuff is getting harder as I get older. Otherwise, I simply use my 200 watt Fender Rumble, which is relatively light and covers most gigs! IMG_0568.JPG

  18. The 800rb was the standard in the 80’s! Crazy durable too. I would load up mine with a multitude of different ohm ratings. It saw 2.67 many times regularly and she never let me down! I sold it about 10 years ago and the new owner loves it and sends me pics of it from time to time.

    I think that windowpane I took back in high school is hitting me again. Your bass looks like it's melting :wideyed:
