    This is Robert Lewis, the bass player for Snoop Dogg. And yes, that's an MTD 735 in his hands...

    He should enter his rig in the super giant rigs of doom thread.

    That is true, but if you were getting paid what snoop pays his touring group, you wouldn't be able to resist all of them bass goodies.

    I bet the FOH guy LOVES trying to fit that into the mix:D

    One that note, anyone know if there is truly a phase issue in a larger venue when there is a massive backline setup like this and a FOH system several meters out in front of it and if so, how its dealt with?

    Especially with the HUGE sonic footprint that the MTD 735 must have through that rig...

    yes there are phase issues, even with smaller backline rigs.
    you simply delay the foh system the appropriate amount of milliseconds to fire when the backline sound reaches the mains.

    and if you think that rig is big, you wimps that think it's unnecessary should see what he puts on his side of the stage for the main rig...

    Interesting. I'd like to see/hear that done.
     
  13. Bigger doesn't necessarily mean better, but it is a GK so I'm sure it kills.

    Haha, I love how when stuff like this is posted everyone starts complaining about necessity and phase issues.

    If I were playing for a big name, you bet your stars I'd have a huge and unnecessary rig... especially if I was being endorsed. Who cares if it makes the FOH guys life a living hell? This isn't some cover band where the sound guy is making beans... I'm sure the FOH guy for Snoop Dog is paid quite well for his duties.

    I have a feeling that only one or "Maybe" two of those stacks and heads are used and the others are there for Looks or as a backup. Really..if they use IEM's...But I bet it sounds killer either way!

    Yeah, but never from the FOH control station watching it get done.
     
  20. I'd like a 1/2 hour with that rig, that'd be nice. :hyper:
