Bar Rig...

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Scott Waldy, Aug 14, 2007.


  1. I have looked at both "Show Your Rig Off" threads. Very nice pics. I now have LOTS of wallpaper. :D

    I am curious as to those of you with those really nice rigs, do you actually gig in bars with them? I know it is a stoopid question but, all that smoke, spilt beer, cigarette burns? If I had a rig as nice as some of those, they would NEVER see the inside of a bar, tour - yea sure, but a smokey bar nope. :scowl:


    So I guess my question is you have a seperate bar rig just for those shows? :confused:
     
  2. I dunno which ppl or RIG's rather, U mean as REALLY NICE. My rig I think is REALLY nice-Fender 300PRO or Ampeg V4BH into a Bergantino NV610 & yes I use it 4 pub gigs whenever we have 'em. Good thing here is- all pubs are SMOKE - FREE now!!!! Even tho I do smoke-a li'l ... It's nice not having stinking gear! :)

    Same in CT - smoke free. :) I was one of the happy ones when that law passed.

    The only beer I need to worry about is mine and that goes on the floor, off to the side, where no one can walk through.

    No special "Bar" rig required.

    I don't think there's a rig around that shouldn't be played out. Why do you buy the stuff?!. I can't imagine owning anything that I wouldn't play out with. A "tour" can be harder on your gear than the local pub/club gig.

    I use the same rig no matter where I play. It's mine and that's why I bought it! Not to sit at home and get no use...

    This is all you need to control spilled beer. It is a mis stand with a bike water holder clipped to it using hose clamps. It works great!!! Also, buy covers and or cases for everything. If they dont have a cover for your speaker cab...........have one made. I wont gig with a cab unless I have a cover for it. Protect your investment!!
     

  10. I LOVE IT!!!! :hyper:

    AS for not being able to smoke in the bar, that law hasn't passed. I am a non-smoker and having my gear saturated with smoke concerns me greatly. :meh:
