My G.A.S for high end equipment is gone after a recent performance going direct out from my GK 1001RB to the evil soundman. I've spent hours dialing in the right sound on the amp & bass, buying rackmount, finding the right cab etc & this guy changes EVERYTHING. I was going for midrange punch, very little bass & almost no treble to the exact opposite on stage. What are we all G.A.Sing for anyway? Why spend 4K on a Ken Smith, 2K on an Aguilar DB750, 1K on Epifani cabs etc... In fact next show I'm just going to run my Direct out Pre EQ, hell why bother? So I figure I'm going to get that flashy Musicman with tons of midrange punch to turn that soundmans smiley face EQ upside down. I want my mids heard & I want my bass sexy dammit. SO Musicman owners in a rock band... can the Soundman destroy you genuine EB tone like he did mine through the P.A. or is your axe enough to take him out?
