    Oh forgot to mention, trumpet player told me "I wanna call you 'Iron Man' cause you dont flinch! You're so steady!" Nice compliment, I'll take it! :cool:

  4. @nbsipics CHICAGO! My girl's favorite -we got tickets for July.
    @alanloomis1980 any compliment from a trumpet player is high praise! That is very nice.

  5. As part of a 3 pc with a cajon and no drums, I also find that I don't miss the drums. Balancing the sound is so much easier and the cajon sounds fantastic. I don't know what kind of mic our lead singer/cajon player purchased but it clips right to the hole on the cajon, so unlike a standard mic on a short stand, if he moves the sound never changes.

    Load ins with a smaller setup are nice aren't they?

    Good gig report, call backs tell you all you need to know about your performance!

    As a reformed trumpet player myself, I know it's a very high honor! (Egomaniacs, those trumpeters :whistle: ;) )
    I just love it. It allows us to play low volume gigs, dinner hours, brunch, happy hour, etc. Its still weird to me to not be the first one set up!

  7. I built a little stand for that. I had some leftover plywood, grabbed a bit of scrap conveyor belt from work and bought some rubber feet from Amazon. Cost me $5 and an hour of my time.

    Love the pics, thanks for sharing. I played with a cajon drummer for a few years and loved the easy load ins (I used a small 1x12 Markbass).
