    I normaly say "Hello" ...... "How are you?"
    Or "Hey"

    I'm getting board of those and would like something new. 'Hello' Is to dull. Blends in to much. 'How are you' is just to deep and 'hey'. Well 'hey' isn't cutting through the mix. I'm sure I just need a new greeting with more wattage. Should I go with a combo greeting or a stack greeting?
    How loud is to loud when it comes to greeting? Like I don't want to be on the phone and wake up my nieghbours at night. I'd also like one that can be loud but won't lose its togetherness played at low levels.

    I was thinking 'Yo' but it doesn't have enough punch. Then again a punch to the shoulder, has to much punch.
  2. What up.
  3. "69?"
  4. How'rya? In a thick, incomprehensible Irish accent. Dah ladeez be all up on ya farmer ass.
  5. "How ya doin'?"

    I like to use a seperate head and cab - that way I have more flexiblity for each situation. I generally run the pre greeting at about 7 and set the post greet gain depending on the room. I usually scoop the EQ a bit for most greetings...

    In person I like to go with a "Howdy" - it makes me feel like a cowboy - and on the telephone I like to just say "Go".

    Boost the mids between "What's shakin'?" and "take 'er easy." I wouldn't worry about cutting through unless you're using more than a touch of distortion.

    Well, I usually go with the

    "Hey, how are ya?"
    or "Whazzup?"
  19. How about "I'M NOT GAY!"

    I use that one and look at how many friends I have. You should try it too.
