i've never played in a band in a bar that needed bass in the monitors. in fact the bass amp would always be next to the drummer anyway so it's pointless. whenever i'm the bass player i specify no bass in the monitors because it usually just sounds bad even through high quality wedges.
Do you play drums? Just because you don't like bass in your wedges doesn't mean a 30 year vet of drums shouldn't have bass in his wedge. Stick with your bass playing okay don't be giving advice about being pointless about what drummer's not needing bass in their wedge just because you don't like bass in your drummer's wedge. Maybe not all bass player use a bass amp. I know few bassist that show up with a bass POD? Um lets see I don't allow bass in my monitors.
