If you're playing a small club/bar (with full PA support) with say 3 bands going on, do all of the bands use the same drum set and the same bass amp (usually the last/headlining band). If you know that you're going in to this situation and can't contact the last bands bass player,... do you bring your rig? Do most of the band members and the sound man not want you to use your own amp because of set up time and convience (it's just easier to plug into one bass amp for the whole show)? Do you have to use your amp for your sound or is it strickly just a bass monitor? I find that here in Toronto that is usually the way it goes. I like it because I can just walk in with my bass, plug in and play and then have a few drinks and walk home. But I'm always a little hesitant walking into a place and hoping that the bass player will let me use the amp (hasn't happened yet but I'm super polite and never really half to mess with any tone controls or set up),... and I'm hoping that it's a decent amp at that. All I need is a clean monitor but sometimes I get this 1960s distorted guitar turned into bass rig halfstack and I'm wishing for my SWR WM12 combo. What about the rest of you and the places you play?
