Played a gig two weekends ago, small bar venue, probably 40 people max, but with a great sound system and stage. First of all, most un-jaded sound guy ever. Super friendly, asked what we needed, what we wanted, etc. We were playing instrumental, so we asked for a talk mic, kick mic, and a bass di to the wonderful subs they have. My guitarist asked him to DI from my amp, but I steered him towards my Sansamp BDDI instead. My amp is EQ'd totally flat, so whatever is coming out of the sansamp is what I want going out to the mains. My amp is for stage noise. It's a small venue, so I set my volume pretty low so it didn't bleed. Anyway, gig went well, good (if small) crowd, etc etc. I was standing in front of the drummer in the frontman position (again, no vocals ) so I was gleaming my playing from the mains all show. As we began to break down my gear I noticed that my line out from my sansamp to my amp had come unplugged at some point in the show! If I had used my amp's DI, I would have lost everything, probably during a high-energy part of a song (I move and jump around a bit, my foot probably found the cable and yanked it out). Lesson learned, I will always insist on my DI being taken from my pedalboard rather than my amp!
