So we played the Whiskey a Go Go on Sunset, LA the other night and OMG! their house sound system was absolutely amazing. I brought my rig, but all I really would have needed was a simple DI. I mean every note from all of the instruments and all of the voices were crystal clear without it really being that loud overall. Actually, I think my stage rig was detracting from the sound because of the phase conflicts. But we've played a lot of venues and nothing has ever sounded and made us sound as good. It puts all of this "perfect bass rig" chat into a new perspective.
