We're so old, I stopped using backline over 20 years ago  ::)

Tell me you don't miss that.

My preamp flightcase with MB1, wireless receiver (bass) and wireless sender (inears), DHP-33, Tuner & Rolls PM 351 still weight a ton though.

But indeed, I do not miss lugging big bass amps and cabs at all  O0

@Peter - I can't imagine life without a back line (I get that that's they way it's become for some  :facepalm: ). Not that I play out much these days, but in Australia, (mostly) having your amp set up is still expected and ok.

I plug in (directly into the power amp or effects return) to whatever is available, if my bandmates need me to plug in (when no monitors are available to them) with the in-ear setup I can hear myself better than I ever did using a backline (which is great especially when I need to play fretless).

Hey Harley, the lighting guy had the back truss right up to the ceiling tiles, so he got the blame, but he went either side of it so it wasn't the cause.  It just went off, and covered me and my rack&cab with black slime that you can't wash out of clothes  :facepalm: .  By the time the fire brigade got there to turn it off, the water had pooled up to the bar and there was just us band people to clean it up (brooms, fans, hair dryers, whatever we could find).  Also it was that modular aluminium stage with a carpet covering on top and right angled bits along the bottom/floor really hard to get the water out.  When the front line par 64s' came on during the show, sweat city.  The things we do, it was a good show in the end. Though we couldn't start until they had replaced the sprinkler head....  Luckily I hadn't got a guitar out when it happened.  Being a 35C day (mid summer here) I had to throw out the shorts and singlet I was wearing, the black stuff (settles in the pipes) just wouldn't wash out.

I played with In-Ear-Monitors (IEMs) for years, just brought a 1x12 and my rack with me. Yes, I could hear myself and everyone else just fine....in fact, a little too good. You really couldn't tell what the ambient sound was like without a couple mics pointed at the crowd or some overheads.

Also, we couldn't talk to each other onstage, all of us had our earphones in...blocking out that ambient noise. So, I started pulling one out and listening that way....eventually, I just left the IEMs in a briefcase and don't use them now.

They make it way easier to sing without blowing out your voice, but again, I can't tell what is going on onstage, feels so separated from the whole experience.
