Hello all, A few days ago, myself and a couple of friends played together when we were auditioning for a local organization. Our performance was terrible. Guitar tone was too distorted that you couldn't make out the individual notes, bass was either too thumby or too trembly and drums were too loud. This combination has even led to bigger mistakes such as playing off rhythm every now and then. It sounded like it was our first time picking up our instruments even though we have been jamming together for a few years. Did any one ever face such circumstances? I am starting to think it is really not possible to play using someone else's equipement without spending at least 30 min sound checking with a few warmup songs.
