I'm in a situation I don't like. Our system at church requires us to keep stage noise to a minimum as the building is very dodgy acoustically (damn stone). Therefore, guitar amps may be moving off stage to another room, and the bass am is likely to go altogether. We use in ear monitoring so a lot of people have taken to using DI for the bass anyway and the bass amp is sitting on stage for no reason.
I'm no bassist, but I've been given the job of looking into how we get good bass tone by going through DI only. Is the answer a sans amp? Are there cheaper alternatives that are any good?
Any help is appreciated.
