Good Sunday to you all and Happy St Pat's day. I play at a couple of churches and use IEM's going from my pedal board direct with no amp support. I am also playing in a couple of bands that play large venues and small clubs. I have triple driver custom molds with incredible seal/isolation. I am very satisfied with the my monitor sound and really can't hear my amp with the IEM's anyway. I am not one those guys who has to feel the air behind me. Regardless, we all have to trust the sound man. I take out an ear periodically to get a quick feel for the sound in the room. But based on everything, I am really considering ditching an amp/cabs in all siutations where I have an IEM mix. Very interested in your thoughts on this.
