Hi, Would you accept to run your bass like this? Bass -> DI -> Mixer -> Aux out (pre) -> Bass amp input This way, the soundguy has the possibility to adjust the volume of your amp from the board. Reading all the "soundguy from hell" stories here on TB, I have a feeling most of you would be a bit skeptical to do this, but I thought why not ask you directly? I actually did run my bass like this back in the days. We never had a soundguy at our gigs though, so I was completely in charge of my sound. (The reason was that the DI/line out on the amp was crap). My own answer to my question above would probably be "yes", but if he lowers the volume so much I don't hear myself anymore, I'd not accept doing it again with the same soundguy at the mixer.
