    What to do when having In Ear Monitor Issues?

    Yeah, just a long extension to go from the headphone out on your receiver ( most have this ), it's a quick fix and guaranteed to work for cheap. Piece of gaff tape the cord to your belt or tie it around your instrument cable and plug in.

    For what it's worth. I've had a psm200, Carvin em900, Sennheiser g3, and lastly on a whim I bought the Vocopro iem digital system, think it was $200, price went up a bit as of late. I compared it directly with the G3 before I sold the G3 system. The Sennheiser stuff is not really 100%...

    1st Axe 2nd Real Amp. To me the first one sounded more sterile in comparison. This can come down to preference at this point, but they both sound great, 1 is probably missing 5% of some special rocket sauce.

    IEM Stereo Mix

    Well you need 2 aux sends one hard left and right, and set your psm300 to stereo mode, and pan the instruments how ever you want. Thats the cliff notes version. And yes it is the way to go, it is way less congested than a mono mix where everything is fighting right up the middle.

    Do you prefer high action?

    It's a fine balance. Higher action you can chunk harder on heavy riffs. Really low action, it doesn't let the string ring as well. I love they brought up TNT, you could throw a cat under his action lol.

    How do you dial tones for live use?

    Place your monitor how you are going to use it, in my case it is backline setup behind facing forward. Turn up to gig volume and play. Use the looper to loop a riff and then tweak while it's looping. Always use what you are using live to dial in patches. If you don't know what will be...
