    Yep.
    I guess Sir Paul is not a TB member since he didn't know not mix cabinet sizes! :D:bag:

    Just out of curiosity, I wonder who was the "first" one to post on the TB amp forum not to mix bass cabinets - maybe BFM, or was it someone else? Anyone know?

    the mix sounded good thru my system. so did Don's Ampeg. the dude who played w/eurythmics sounded very good. huge!
    a good show overall.

    ps - I think the Vox were being used by the folks playing the little 6 string things :bassist:

    Since we're bring up old topics.... anyone notice that the backing band and backing singers used music stands? And didn't I see a headstock tuner on Frampton's guitar?

    Nope! Jeff Lynne had the headstock tuner. Not Frampton.

    Don't mix BFM, or any other horn, because of the differences in horn length. Go and mix different sizes of any other type of speaker/cabinet.

    Woah, woah, hold on... wait a second.

    I skip the gear threads 'cause my rig consists of 1. a bass (any old bass'll do) and 2. a cable. What's this about not mixing cab sizes in a nutshell?

    thanx
