I've successfully managed to not think much about gear for perhaps close to two years now. I've been using the Clarus SL and Wizzy 10 combo for everything, in combination with a Full Circle. Every now and then I think about using a mic but can't be bothered although I will occasionally use a stand-mounted one at a concert gig. Interested in the new Vektor but haven't gotten around to ordering one. Of course in reality I'm not really happy with the amplified sound I'm getting. I've had it with using the Wizzy for concert gigs. The portability is just so damn great for regular jobbing gigs but I really do not dig the sound as much as I've tried to live with it. So harsh and artificial sounding at least with the Full Circle. No punch, no warmth. Unfortunately when I look at other options for something highly portable but still capable of playing most situations, I am stymied as to what to do. I keep wondering about a Series III AI combo because of the weight and combo convenience. I had a Series II in the past and grew to hate the down-firing woofer but people tell me the Series III sound much better. I know about the forthcoming forwarding firing 2 x 10 but am not prepared to go much above a total head/cab weight of 22 or 23 lbs. With the Clarus SL and Wizzy 10 I'm not even at 20 lbs. The Phil Jones Flightcase BG-150 is interesting but there are concerns with how much it can pump out although my experience is that I really don't need that much sound. Also wondering about the Genz Benz STL-10T or STL-8T cabs with the Clarus SL or even the combos. I did actually try and order a STL-8T when Marty first clued me onto it but it never turned up. Separately I am thinking about the Phil Jones 4B cab with the Clarus SL (possibly not enough power?) for concert gigs. 39 lbs is more cab than I ever could have imagined but I hear the sound is damn good. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
