I was watching the monk documentary "straight no chaser" And there's a segment where they are recording in a studio. And It got me thinking no one is using headphones (I have never heard of headphones being used back then).
And when you look at old pictures and concerts it's rare to see mics on the bass atleast when it's in small clubs.
I was wondering if anyone on this forum was around then that could tell me if the bass players where a hell of alot louder and the drummers much quieter. I think I read somewhere that the drums wasn't as loud as they are today. And the heads where really different.
But alot of people today play really really old basses so there's no difference there. But I've never seen a bass player who isn't plugged in no matter how small the venue is.
Not really important but I'm curious about how much things have changed.
