I used to search for info on how well gear worked for live use with only moderate luck, so I'd like to contribute by reporting on how things work for me. VENUE: Small club, roughly 100(?) capacity. GEAR: Ampeg PF-350, 8-ohm Eden EX112, MIM P with La Bella Black Nylon tapewounds. GENRE: Americana, bluegrass, singer-songwriter. Line-up was guitar, bass, drums and electric cello. The guitar went through a Mesa combo, the cello through FOH. When I walked in, the sound guy told me an amp without FOH support would be enough, and my 1x12 would be sufficient. We had a short soundcheck and I thought I was too boomy, so knocked down the bass a little. There was a lot of RF buzz from my guitar so I rolled the treble nearly fully off. Controls ended up at bass 10 o'clock, mid 2 o'clock, treble 9 o'clock. The sound guy also handed me an Ebtech hum eliminator which I used and seemed to work. The buzz came and went, though, so it could have been anything. I could hear myself clearly during the gig on the lower notes, but had a little trouble hearing notes around the octave G. Don't know whether this was my amp settings or instrument setup, have to look into that further. I feel confident that the room could hear me because the rig was at my ankles, backed up against the wall. That's all I can think of for the moment. Any questions, comments, advice welcome!
