My church just had our live recording concert with over 1000 people. There was 2 bass player for that concer, and I was one of them. I was playing my Alembic Rogue 5 string, and the other guy was playing a MIA Jazz with J-retro, and a sadowsky preamp through a GK 4X10. After the concert, people came up to me saying that they could not hear a good and clear tone when the other bass player was playing, and mine was a bit better. My deepest frustration comes when playing live, people(engineer or musicians) here like to listen to very FAT bass, i mean extremely fat, it comes to a point where it's really annoying to listen to it anymore. it's nothing but lows! I get a group of people i work with who always complaint that my tone isn't fat enough or low enough. Yet when I was in Vancouver canada, we did a concert where the live engineer did an awesome job IMO that every single ghost note, every muted noteI played was audible to the audience. That was great!! That particular engineer went to the extent of coming up to me and listening to my tone on stage. He would request a minor adjustments to my amp etc, and maintained my original tone to FOH. Anyone here experienced the frustration I went through?
