the mixing desk is what the PA is connected to.

providing the PA system has a subwoofer (which i'm hoping it does) then it'll be okay. ofcourse you wouldn't be able to change your tone unless you had a pedal setup

Guys... read the first post again, maybe twice more, just in case, and tell us when you realise that he said he doesn't have an AMP.

if you mic the bass, it will not sound the same as it would through the P.A or an amp. If you mic the bass you're basically just listening to the strings vibrate, and not using the pickups at all, which is a waste of time, DO NOT DO THIS, you will get laughed at.

As for a bass, check the FAQ, they've got great beginner basses in there.

If you're going through the P.A. You'd probably need a really long cord, because you have no idea how far away the P.A. system is from the stage. It sounds kind of like you've never played bass before though, so how are you expecting to play a show this weekend? I say just ask the place you're playing if they have any instruments, or ask a friend, you'll be better off.

Edit, To Ben: you missed this post:

I have to ask, do you even know how to play bass? Or are you one of those people with friends in a band that want you to play in the band so they make you play bass? Man this reminds me of a bunch of bassist jokes right now.

I disagree Slipknot is more technical than Necrophagist and more brutal than Suffocation, that's why I do hardcore dances to it with my 14 year old friends.

Quote by jakethesnakeLP
Wow, can i put my mic and bass in it at the same time?

No, he asked if he could use both a mic and a bass in the PA at the same time. He doesn't know anything about PA's, but he knows at least something about playing bass to figure out he might could run one through a PA.

At any rate, the guy either genuinely doesn't know and doesn't own a bass or amp, or he's some guy out for attention. I figure the latter, but humoring him is about all the exitement we get on the bass forums.

Now, on the off-chance that this isn't complete spam, what the hell are you doing booking a gig without any equipment whatsoever?

you cant just run a long cable from your bass because the output is unbalanced, you need a DI box to make the signal balanced then the cable can be as long as you want.
hopefully the sound guy has a DI box.

Join date's far too early - and Jake the Snake was a wrestler, whereas Ozzypossum was just an arsehole.

BTW, Ozzypossum was the same dude was EpiphoneSG41 or whatever the hell it was?

i'm gonna go out on a limb and say it'll be his first gig or close to it and there was an accident involving the loss/destruction/both of his rig.... or he's screwin with us...either way. yes it can be done and your sound guy can adjust your tone at the mixing board if he has a decent one.
