I've got a question for you gigging musician's. I play in a group that has an awesome PA system that is scaleable from large outdoor shows to small club setups. We sometimes run 6 seperate monitor mixes on stage and have a wedge for all of us. I normally use one of my tube amps and mic it to the FOH. The drummer and some of the other guys have a little of my guitar added to their in-ear mixes or to their wedge. I don't normally need any guitar in my monitor for that setup. I'm wondering if for the smaller shows or for shows where we have to have a quick setup and teardown if getting something like one of the new Tech21 character pedals which has an amp/cab simulator and the sound of a renouned tube amp might be a good alternative to using my larger tube amps. I could put my guitar in my monitor wedge and allow the FOH guy to control my guitar out front. I know I'd lose the "feel" I love so much about tube amps but maybe the lack of hassle for those rare situations would be worth it. Ideas? Thoughts? Experiences? Thanks In Advance.
