For the band I am in, our bass player uses an amp but uses the balanced
(XLR) direct out from the amp to the board.

I -- with my Marshalls -- mike my amps, if the venue calls for it. Some
places are too small and don't need it.

And I will also contend that if the guitarist using a 100 watt Marshall
is more powerful than the PA, he's got no business playing a full stack
onstage. For most gigs I've found a 50 watt combo (also Marshall) to be
more than adequate...

Oh, well, we're going off topic...
