My main venue is live Gospel. Sunday mornings, some evenings, and at least once or twice a week, I'm at some church backing up a choir w/ 30 to 40+ voices, playing along with at least a Hammond B3, mic'd drums, maybe another Keyboard, and on a rare cassion, a lead guitar. and competing with HORRIBLE accoustics. I never get a line to the board. For regular gigs in average size churches, I play either my Epi 212 or both of my Epi 112's On a rare occassion, I'll bring all three of them for a monsterous stack!! My tone is routed through an Alembic F1X and SF2 into a QSC 3002 for up to 3000 watts of power (1500 to each side Max, averaging about 1200 though - 1200 to the 212 and 600 to each of the 112's depending how it's set up.) And my one and only axe is a punchy as you wanna be Ken Smith 6. No FX. Don't need them for Gospel. And when I say Gospel, I mean the genre of Fred Hammond, Hez Walker, Daryl Coley, John P. Kee, Yolanda Adams and the like. Other guys out there in my similar situation? I know there are. Because I run into you at the various churches I play at and you always wanna plug into my rig and check out my stuff!! What are your rigs? (And why don't you ever bring them?) I've been told that I'm into over-kill. But I don't think so. I never get a line to a board, so I get heard based on what I show up at the door with. And like I said, HORRIBLE ACCOUSTICS! Not that power and volume make up for horrible accoustics, but I prefer being told to turn it down rather than "We can't hear you on the second row!" What about placement? I try to set my rig up near the drummer and stand near him as well. Otherwise, I have to set up where I can be within eyeshot of the Organist or the director for cues. It's usually one or the other. But if I can, I'll bring one of the 112's and put it on the floor behind the drummer so that he and I are locked in while the 212 is my main "to the crowd" speaker. For flexibility and freedom to move around, I have added a wireless (X-Wire) but I sold it to get better gear. A used one will be my next purchase. It'll free me up to move around. And believe me, there ain't NOTHIN' BETTER than the X Wire. So fella's and gals out there, talk to me. Whatcha got? Whatcha usin'?
