[Harp-L] Personal powered monitors

I used something like this for a while. If you're going to plug both ears, you need one that will take a monitor send from the board, in addition to your mic, with two volume controls.
Otherwise, you'll have to do the one plug in/one out routine. Never found that to be a good solution. It can mess with your pitch too.

>> I would appreciate recommendations for personal powered monitors. I have used a 50 watt Powerwerks monitor but it just didn't have enough sound to overcome a nearby guitar. I have been using an effects pedal straight into PA and need a little help hearing myself in some situations over and above band's monitors.
