I am kind of worried about what soundmen do to my tone etc. Im in a cover band that does a wide variety of music. Example RHCP, Tool, Green Day, Rush etc. So my tones will change and vary. Using a pick for Tool, Greenday etc then finger for the other 80%. Distortion for NIN and Orgy etc. Well I worry about them changing my tone. It seems like most of the soundmen out there use a low , punchy tone but less defined tone setting thru the PA. But this doesnt coincide with what Im am trying to achieve for some of our songs. I wonder if I am battling with the soundman. Or if they are making me sound bad and one dimensional. I have listened to them run sound sound for other bands and it seems like they are always going for the same tones. I have tried talking with them but they are for the most part rude and set in their own ways. Sound checks usually consist of 20 minutes of mic and amp checks. I hit a few notes and they move on to another mic or instrument. What can I do to feel better or remedy this. Is it just the way things are??
