I’m downsizing my travel rig from a Fender Champion 100 2x12 combo and Harbinger M60 sound system down to a Roland Micro Cube GX and possibly another battery-powered amp to run my vocal mic out of.…Continue

"Hi, Taffy! I’ve used a couple bass DI boxes to record albums and do live shows - mostly a Tech21 SansAmp Bass Driver DI and also the Ampeg SCR-DI pedal. The advantage of the Ampeg is it has an Aux input to use an iPad to play along with tracks…"

Retooling my gig rig - 2nd amp or keep the PA?

I’m downsizing my travel rig from a Fender Champion 100 2x12 combo and Harbinger M60 sound system down to a Roland Micro Cube GX and possibly another battery-powered amp to run my vocal mic out of. Most places I play are either dive bars or small restaurants so I’m really rethinking the need for a sound system. I want to keep everything as portable as possible and I’m tired of lugging around a full rig. I just want to get some feedback on if I should ditch the PA and go with a small amp for…See More
