  2. Must of been bad sound that night because when I saw them on their most recent tour the bass sounded great. The whole band sounded and played great. A lot better sounding and performance wise then the Test for Echo tour I saw years before
     
  3. Hey Smash I see you like Blacky. I like Voivod a lot too. I love Blacky's tone on Nothingface especially.

    When they last played Winnipeg, years ago, they had the best concert sound I have ever heard. Geddy as perfectly clear.

    When they played in Manchester NH, the bass tone was great, but you couldn't hear the vocals at all. That sucked.

    Chris A.:rolleyes: :bassist:
     
  7. The show I went to in West Palm Beach sounded great like I said, and I could hear everything. I also did'nt mention I was on the lawn too and it still sounded amazing. Last time I went to the same venue to see the TEST FOR ECHO tour It was barely loud enough and I was in seats(near the back though). This Vapor Trails tour Geddy sounded great on bass and with his vocals. Peart and Alex played top-notch too. I also saw Peter Gabriel in the same venue recently, that sounded really good as well. Tony Levin has a great sound as usual.

    My main gripe the last time I saw them (Test 4 Echo, in an outdoor setting) was that the keys were so fat and bassy and loud that his bass, by comparison, seemed way too thin and almost nonexistent on songs when he went back and forth.
