absolutely heartbreaking ....
Yeah, so I told the drummer to ditch the 10 piece instead.
Many a woman has told me exactly that.
Repeatedly. It happened so often that I got rid of a lot of my "whole rig" and can now fit a tube head and guitar 412 in my car. Amazingly enough, this has been a good enough bass rig for most of the places I play.
I still love those gigs where I get to borrow a power amp and set up my 810 and 215, though
I'm going to show you something that will shock and surprise you, but first I'll need you to move back a few feet
That's a Dom Deluise quote, BTW.
I played a gig in college in a small venue and was informed by the band "leader" that I would have to run direct because there was no room for my amp. Bear in mind, both guitarist were running full stacks and the drummer had a double bass setup. To make matters worse, there was only one monitor on the other side of the stage. I told the leader I would leave unless they made room for me, but he didn't believe me until I walked out the door. Turns out, they didn't think my rig was going to "look right" on the stage with their stacks. They found room for my amp, but it was the last gig I ever played with this band.
paging prockenklang and tombowlus....
wheres the bowlus bergantino PA pic when ya need it?
I had to tell MYSELF that! Because the other members of my band are self-centered slackers and drive vehicles that are inappropriate for the music business, I have to haul the PA. 99% of the time I can't take my NV425 because it takes up too much room! The most infurating situation is when I haul the PA and arrive to find that everyone has already set up and left room for either my amp or me. Not both.
Never really had that problem. I become the dictator when it comes to amp setup. If you have no room for me, my amp will go where it'll blast a guitarists head off. I am possibly going to be getting a 212 soon, so my 4x8 and 4x10 can take a break. That may give me a bit more swinging room./
Yep. Fortunately, half my rig is usually more than enough.
Yes. But that was back when I ran two SVT heads and two SVT cabinets.
Correction: I ran only one stack; the other was for show -- this was the era when whoever had the biggest backline won. But I was still disappointed when I couldn't show 'em both.
P.S. Roadies moved the gear, not I!
I've brought an amp to a gig only to find out taht I have to run into the, I'e done it even without monitors before and that gig went fine. A bass with high output and a long cable were key to me in those situations....I didn't really mind. Sound=In the hands =)
I know what your thinking and if I was to tell you you'd think I was talking in centimetres.
Usually I run a Bergie 210 with a Bergie 610, powered by my Mesa 400+. If there isn't enough room (occurs once in a while), I use just the Bergie 210 and head, which gets plenty of volume although not quite the tone I want.
I think you need to add another.
I meant in the vehicle you are travelling in....
I'm like Chuck Norris on this. I just tell 'em, "There's not enough room for your ass on this stage." Then I roundhouse kick 'em into oblivion.
Yeah... no room for my cab. Got ok borrow opening bands cab, but when I got there, they wouldn't let me run my amp into it. I had to play the show on their gear/no pa support. Bleck... won't happen again.
If i had my way i'd run my nv215 with an nv610 and a 750 and call it a day. Unfortunately my band has limited me to one cabinet in the rehearsal room after experimenting with a 2x15, 4x10, and 4x12 at the same time. One day though...
