@Tim - yes, brainfart on my part. Many guitarists prefer mic to DI because they believe their speaker adds tone, they can play with feedback etc. DI is much less hassle for the soundman.

Perhaps a separate question is required about DIs?

@NReilingh a balanced cable (we're talking XLR) can take instrument-level signals along long signal runs, so you don't need to amplify first. A typical "big gig" setup would be guitar -> pedals -> guitar amp -> mic -> DI -> mixer -> PA amp

Not quite. A DI box turns an unbalanced signal into a balanced signal suitable for transmitting over long cable runs.
