      I am an active musician and my older brother who is a studio engineer has been trying to convince me to get IER's for a few years. I finally faced the fact a few months ago... I mostly play guitar now (came from bass and drums) either your on a massive stage and your cab is mic'ed backstage or your is small venue you probably don't want your amp there...Practice has been getting loud for me... I like things relativly quiet. I have always carried a pair of musician reuasable earplugs on me.. for whenever I play drums or am with a loud drummer. I was worried with IER's that my guitar tone wouldnt be that good. I bought some MEE M6 IER's and they are great. My brother is an audiophile also and he had tested all the IER's under $ and those were what he liked best although for him they have too much bass. Which isn't the best for listening, but for live I think its a little better to be able to hear the bass and the kick drum. Those are also ear plugs too so I can have my mix so much quieter than the stage noise that is going on.Anyways tested it out at a small venue the other week and WOW!!!! The tone was all there (I have a very complex pedal board with a lot of great pedals) I can't wait until a bigger venue with a mic'ed tube amp. In floor moniters things get really loud and harsh quick. They are often muddy and even in expensive ones they lack clarity. They also help feedback. With IER's I can hear the mix with clarity. My guitar tone is still there, but it has clarity and I am hearing details I did not with my amp...Now to the PM351Its really solid. It looks and feels like it will last years. The breakers annoy me a little. They are a little tought to change and seem like it would be frustrating to in a gig with low litghting. It would really stink to lose that little piece. I also wish it had a stereo XLR in the mon mix and EQ could be nice, but that would also take away from why I like this and that is it is SIMPLE.I think it is really useful it sounds great. For singing you can tell if your off the mic even a bit. If you are using a cheap mic with this you will notice it may be time to upgrade to atleast a sm58.The DI out is really nice. No it isn't a studio grade DI, but it is better than a lot of cheaper ones. The DI sounds great. I have had recording engineers, sound engineers, and other musicians wondering what it is. One sound engineer I work with a lot loves it.The possabilities with this seem endless.For drummers this is the setup I would use-Click track > instrument in-Kick drum > mic in (what drummer doesn't want more umph?)-Mon mix > MonThe Stereo instrument and mix in are really nice.I have also used this in conjuction with an Aviom system. For that I use the out from the Aviom into the mom mix of the PM351 (being the instrument and vocal signal from the PM351 is a little cleaner and more adjustable) For the price it is incredible and worth every penny. Finally a quiet detailed Mon Mix :) One happy musician here.

      This is one of the best, inexpensive in-ear/Headphone monitoring units out there. It has 3 inputs: line level; which is the overall band, mic; speaks for itself, and instrument. It would. Be nice if it had proper switches for stereo/mono and ground lift, instead of using pin jumpers which are a pain in the ass to remove. Also the construction slightly differs from unit to unit. I purchased 5 units and some jumpers are easy to access, some are not. It has a built in DI out for the instrument, although it would be nice to have a single output instead of dual XLR out (right and left). What i would like to see is a line level thru port which can be used to join multiple units together instead of using a separate splitter unit. Overall the band is happy for it can offer at the price.

        Comments about Rolls PM351 Personal Monitor Station:

        I've used a ROllS PM351 for 4 years in gigs and rehearsals with a 7 piece 70's rock band, and a three piece jazz/eclectic trio. I use a 4 channel xlr stage snake to take the mic thru and stereo channels out from my guitar to the the main snake box. I use the fourth channel with a short XLR/TRS cable to bring the monitor mix from the board into the line-in input. I mounted it on a trombone accessories shelf that slides onto a music stand, and leave the PM351 end of the snake connected all of the time. I did mess one up by using too hot of a signal from my VOX Tonelabs LS Pedal as Line instead of AMP output, but that was my own error, not the boxes. I run it rhu headphones with the seven piece band, and thru a Charvel practice amp as a monitor with the trio.

        Comments about Rolls PM351 Personal Monitor Station:

        These mixers are awesome. Our band now has 3 of these, they work brilliantly and have heaps of flexibility. Drummer mixes his own voice, a feed from his electronic drum kit (headphone out) and a monitor mix from the desk and can control all 3 levels to his in-ear headphones. Bass player does a similar thing. The unit seems really rugged and we've been using them for over 18 months now at gigs with no issues. If I'm really picky, the only thing thing I don't like so much is the use of jumpers on the circuit board to change mono to stereo and to ground lift. You need tweezers to change them, most long nose pliers won't do the job. I think slider switches would be far better, and also lessen the chance of dust, dirt, beer etc getting onto the circuit board. If Rolls also added space to house a 9V battery, then this would be the perfect monitor mixer.

          I paired the PM351 with Yamaha MSP-5 (5") studio monitors mounted on a custom bracket. I also tested it with in-ears. Works perfectly. Tons of gain, no noise. An added feature is the stereo instrument input and 2-channel XLR output, which can be used for 2 instruments feeding two separate channels on your sound board. You'll need to use a TRS "insert" cable.

          The only downside, which cannot be avoided in a personal monitoring station product, are all the wires coming up the mic stand, and the extra setup time that goes with it all.

          Another downside, is a lack of *small* powered, mic-stand mountable speakers in the market space. Most of what you'll find have multiple inputs that duplicate the Rolls functionality. You'll end up buying studio monitors and making custom brackets to stand mount it. But if you already have the speakers (like I did), and all you need is the personal monitor mixing station, then this is it!

            Wow, this works really well. I bought it for the band at our church. Makes it very easy for someone who plays an instrument and sings to have a decent in-ear monitor without spending a fortune.

            Very solid all-metal construction. Setup and use are very simple; the diagrams & labels silk-screened onto the top make it easy to see what should plug in where.

            As a nice additional touch, it doubles as a direct box for the instrument input. I highly recommend the optional MSC106 mic stand adapter if you're using this on stage.

            Only drawback is that you need a long cable or an extension for your ear monitor / headphones. If you mount this on a mic or music stand, you don't have a lot of room to move.

            We'll be buying a mix of these and the 1-channel PM50s to move our whole band to in-ear monitors.

            Comments about Rolls PM351 Personal Monitor Station:

            If anyone in your band wants "more me" control of their in-ear foldback for both their vocals and an instrument (or two instruments), then this is THE box for them! Ok so it costs more than the 2 channel competition, but this has the essential 3rd channel the others lack, plus an integral stereo DI box, so the total cost is much the same. What is really nice is the way it can be set for mono or stereo inputs on both the instrument channel and the main foldback. The cct diagram even contains instructions to convert the mic channel for line level inputs. A really useful box, and a much better buy in real terms than the competing products, for use by real musicians!

              We use the mixers in a church setting. We have successfully unplugged and moved our wedge monitors offstage! The individual controls are excellent, and vocalists can hear themselves pristinely. We're even getting some more mixers for guest musicians.

              The switches to change from stereo to mono are a pain .. but that's really because the whole unit is so small, which is actually a benefit.

              I would recommend these highly.

              Product is used in a church setting. I was amazed at how many inputs and outputs there are. All the 1/4 ins can be stereo. The mic-through is fabulous. I have a monitor feed coming into the line in and a stereo instrument (keyboard) as instrument. I can even run it through only one ear and tune things to a very low level. It lacks EQ controls and so you can't turn down the treble, say, but I haven't missed that for my purposes. The price and quality are great!

                  Comments about Rolls PM351 Personal Monitor Station:

                  The Rolls Personal Monitor system is an inexpensive alternative to the $$$$ systems by Roland and Aviom for schools, churches and other users without a big budget. We needed to add an additional musician station to our existing system and found the best price for an individual unit at B&H.

                  I bought this box to use with in ear headphones as I play on the worship team at church. I play electric guitar and sing, so this works perfectly to let me hear a general mix, my voice, and my guitar. Having the "more me" knobs available to me is so much simpler than asking the sound guys to turn me up or just singing louder. I can hear every nuance of my playing and singing now, which is a little scary. :) I can tell if I'm singing off axis or too far from the mike when I close my eyes. The sound quality and build quality are amazing.

                  I take a copy of the monitor feed sent to our drummer since we don't have another monitor bus on our sound board. So this is a great, inexpensive solution to our problem.

                  I like that there is a lot of head room on the pots. I turned each of them up to only about 9 o'clock or noon.
