Hi fellow TB-ers! I was wondering if anyone had an experience like mine last night when you should have known better and taken your own rig to a gig. This is my setup: Kolstein Fendt, Kaplan G D A Spiro Mittel E. Ehrlund with its pre + an old Underwood style pu made in Germany going into an fdeck. Both signals are blended with a Boss LS2. TH500 and either an Aguilar SL112 or a Berg AE112. I can massage a really good focused but natural sound out of all of this. Last night was cold (-teens) and I was running to the gig after teaching, so I figured the club has an amp a Markbass LMII and a Markbass 210 I'll use that. Ouch! That 210 is a tone killer. The E string is disproportionately loud and the rest .......just wasn't there. I was so frustrated. I'm, trying to focus on playing not fidgeting with knobs......to no avail. I'm not dogging the Markbass setup, I'm sure it works for some, although I.m not a fan of 210 cabs for upright, especially these deep ones. I'm just ranting for being lazy and suffering the whole night for it. Thanks for the indulgence. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this scenario. Please share....make me feel better On another note, the Ehrlund and the fdeck pre for the other pu are the two amazing pieces of equipment. The Ehrlund replaced my DP mic. Big thanks to DRURB for all the info on both.
