I Play my Guitar effect pedals directly to my Guitar Amp is this okay?
If your guitar amp does not have an audio output jack (XLR or 1/4' Plug) we will use a dual interface DI (Direct Interface Box to connect your guitar to the DI via the 1/4" input jack, then connect the DI's 1/4" output to your amplifier. Your sound will not be affected at all.
How is the bass amplifier connected to the Bose sound system?
Usually via DI output jack (XLR or 1/4") located on the back of your bass amplifier. If you don't have one, then we will use a dual interface DI (Direct Interface box), Your bass line cord is plugged into the DI 1/4" input and the DI 1/4" output is connected to your bass amplifier. The DI is connected to our mixer via the XLR output jack.
