Some friends of mine are looking for someone to help them out with bass duties in their prog/ power band. I have a bass and that will serve well enough for recording, however if I am to join as a full time member I may run into issues if I need a full amp/ cab rig to play live. I've had it suggested to me that I could just DI at gigs and keep it simple and cheap. At this point the Sansamp BDDI comes to mind. Would using the BDDI through FOH be enough at a decent 200-300 capacity venue, or could this pose issues with level or monitoring? My own view on it is that most bass heavy mixes/ bands end up causing clarity issues with loud amps on stage, so this could rectify that issue, plus this will be cheap, light and potentially more consistent between venues as the amp won't be on stage and affected by the nodes in the stage area. Has anyone done DI only metal tones live before with success?
