: I have been playing for 3 years now and i need some help. Our band has a fairly large PA system, but when I plug my bass directly into the board it sounds crap. I've followed everyones advice, about setting the board and bass up and I know that it doesn't work. will it help if I line out from an amp?? Why line out from an amp?? Why mike up an amp, instead of using the line out?
: Any answers to the following questions would be greatley appreciated!!!!
Well, it sounds crap because you are amplyfing de bass with a non-bass amplificator!!. It's better to amplify the amplifier's signal if u can. Why a mic instead of a line out?. I don't know; it depends of the amplifier, the mic and the player. If u have to plug in directly to the PA then try to use a pedal such an amp simalutor (it sounds more or less OK) or if u don't have an amp simulator u can use a graphic equalizator (but this is the worst option).
Hope this helped!
