in my gigs happens something that intrigues me, my paych of acoustic guitar sounds great in PA, clear, deep and bright, but in my earphone it is totally overload, but the curious thing is that it is only the acoustic overload that is, the rest sounds good, kick, snare, bass guitars are great but the patch acoustic guitar overload, can someone help me?

My patch has tube comp, reverb and preamp+eq

mixer is 9 db and is in the center

tube comp tresh 91 and level 24

I have learned to trust my tones when using in-ears. I play electric violin, and in-ears seem to make it sound awful. No complaints from soundman or audience, but distorted in my ears. I don't know why. Make sure your sounds are solid in FOH during warm up/sound check, and resist the urge to tweak during the set. The
more I use iems, the less I like them, and I've used rolls, aviom, and everything in between. My guess is that the iems usually run on low current, and any acoustic or bass-heavy tones are vulnerable to clipping. Trust your tones and use earbuds that match the impedance of the monitor sstem, or as close as possible. Tweak at home, hands off the knobs during the set.

I'm just telling you what I know. The only other thin I can tell you is to play around with your master volume, and have the soundman adjust your input gain and monitor level. That's a house issue, and in no way a problem with your own equipment.
