Played our 2nd gig with my new ASP5 last weekend. A 2 nighter at large club and the bass sounded great. Big thunderous bottom sound set perfectly in the mix (not over bearing) with each note coming through clearly. People told me they could feel the bass. IMHO best compliment they could give me. I played through my usual rig and our drummer surprised me by showing up with his Hartke 4x10 cabinet to add to my rig. He jokingly said it's a big stage, you need a big looking rig. It was really nice of him, but sound wise they weren't needed. Afterall my rig is really just a stage monitor for my bass. I run straight out of my SansAmp BDDI to the board. Oh yeah, plenty of compliments on it's looks. We're off again this weekend, then April and May are full up with at least 2 weekends per month for June, July and August. I'm sure we'll fill some of those dates before too long. Love playing the honky tonks of Oklahoma in a weekend band. The club is almost 100 miles from the house, so I took my Squier VM V as a backup and sat it up on the stage with me. We gave the club owner a signed First Act Guitar (I found this one on craigs list). Best PR move we ever made. She had a blast when we invited her to jam with us on stage while we played Oklahoma Breakdown. I think our front man enjoyed it even more. A picture showing our view.
