It would be prudent to preface my comments with a little background, and perhaps by telling you that I have no affiliation with either the good folks at AccuGroove or their Canadian distributor, GH Services. I am merely sharing my recent personal experience. As to the background, I've been using Acme speakers and specifically the Low B2-II cabinets for a while and they've really delivered the goods. I will continue to use them for smaller venues, but as of this weekend they are no longer part of my default stage rig. Four B2 cabinets with three kilowatts of power did sound truly astounding (especially with 5-stringed instruments) but it really seemed overkill to haul all this around. Two B2 cabinets just weren't cutting it. The main "issues" I was having didn't relate to achieving "my sound" but had a lot more to do with cabinet efficiency and projection. This is what got me thinking about AccuGroove cabinets in the first place. I had no success finding a major chain up here that was willing to source AccuGroove for me, but I don't give up easily and it wasn't long before I noticed a listing for a Canadian distributor on the AccuGroove website. I called them right away. Mark Wright was wonderful to deal with, and after some discussion I was able to decide on the El Whappo. My order was in the queue and my new cabinet would soon be on the way! I tried to provide as much upfront lead-time as was possible given that a very important date was looming on the calendar. Mark (AccuGroove) and Greg Holmes (GH Services), who was also great to deal with, moved heaven and earth to get the El Whappo built, through Customs and up here on time. Although there were a few tense moments on Friday night, my cabinet arrived this past Saturday morning with just enough time for an appropriate break-in period before our sound check. Greg really went the extra mile to pull off a miracle, because on Friday the cabinets were stuck in Toronto with apparently no possibility of delivery until Monday. In the end everything came off without a hitch and both of these good folks are due a very big THANK YOU. My initial concern with choosing an El Whappo was the size and weight. For the record it is neither huge in size nor is it difficult for one person to manage. I was able to load the new lighter model in and out without difficulty, and compared to most here I am an "old guy". Although the sound is quite similar, to my ears the El Whappo does everything that the Acmes do well plus a bit more. Notably I found the overall sound to be more transparent with little or no coloration, even on the lowest notes. Some have written that "you hear the true sound of your instrument" and I agree with this statement wholeheartedly. In fact the rest of the band commented that they could hear actual note fundamentals for the first time. It was also a surprise to run the levels on my DB750 so low... roughly 1/4 of what the Acmes needed to produce the same level onstage, but with amazing projection. So as to the moral of the story, I'm carting around a whole lot less and the band and the audience are now hearing exactly what I hear on stage. Who could ask for more? Thumbs up on the following: El Whappo AccuGroove and Mark Wright GH Services and Greg Holmes You all rock! And the end result? It looks like the band schedule will be VERY busy for the forseeable future. Sincere thanks to all concerned.
