We have a couple gigs lined up that go well beyond our current sound gear capabilities, so we're having to invest in some new stuff. We managed to VERY QUICKLY come to an arrangement that works for us. The guitarist / BL just purchased an additional mixing board, speaker, and instrument mic set. I purchased an IEM system. That should have us pretty well set for the first big test (Ford Field, Detroit....opening for a monster truck rally on Jan. 11th) How do others handle such investments?
