I have tried using a di and I get clicking. I tried using a mic one time and that seemed to work well, but it was hard to hear on stage as my amp was running at a low volume. I'm not sloppy, so I was wondering if maybe I just didn't have something set up right with the di box??? My amp has a di to but I think it's crap. I did notice my p-bass sounded much better through the di than my jazz bass that has active electronics? I was also thinking my bass amp alone would be loud enough without running it through the house pa at all. I have a 4x10 and 1x18 cab?? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
