Hi all, My band is moving to the Furman headphone system for practice. I'm fine with this as I'm not buying any gear to support this decision and I think that the sound and overall quality of the experience will be better - for practice. I really like having independent control over what I hear when I practice. There is some talk of using this system to provide separate monitor mixes on stage and using in ear monitors. The main issues are revolving around having 2 guitar amps on stage. 2 of the guys have a lot of gig experience and are claiming that stage sound always sucks and in ear monitors will fix everything. While I'm aware of the trend towards this in the super high end world of top performers, I'd like to hear your opinions on in ear vs. floor monitors. What do you think? Issues? I'll admit to being sceptical about how bass tone will sound with in ears. I've flat out told them to find another bass player if they think I won't be using an amp on stage though. I didn't spend half of my anual salary (not really) on a rig to use a direct box and turn over control of my sound to someone else! Anyway, I'd love to hear what everyone thinks about this. Thanks.
