Our band are trying out some acoustic setups for quieter venues.
We had a 3-up session last week (vocals, acoustic guitar, piano, and me on bass) and for this I had my Ibanez semi going straight into an old Marshall acoustic amp. Sounded pretty good.
I'm thinking of various options tho, and wondered what others do/would do:
- Stick to an electric bass but use a small portable amp like a mark bass 801
- Acoustic Bass into acoustic amp
- Semi acoustic bass into a small amp
- Bass (electric or acoustic) into an FRFR or DI to desk and hope monitoring is good enough
