    Re: Omnidirectional Mic through bass amp

    Keyboard amp would be best. Maybe try to trade the bass amp for a decent keyboard amp, which will cover the bass needs when you get sorted for a PA.

    I like C, but I’m coming from a ‘cello background so running from bass through tenor into treble is very common for us.
