I'm an Owner/Operator Truck Driver, so I don't gig very much anymore. At one time, I did the 40 hour a week job, plus roughly 220 live gigs a year thing, and I used much more portable gear back then. My band plays classic hard rock and old school Metal covers, with some original material. Because I use a Tech 21 GED-2112 preamp, I use a stereo power amp, and run separate "Dirty" and "Clean" channels into separate cabinets. 95% of the time, my pair of PH212s is more than I need. There aren't very many bars to play live in my area, especially for the material we play, AND that we're group of old guys rocking out, but that's not really my band's focus. We're having fun, and playing local festivals and seasonal outdoor gigs is what we're working towards. I'm buying the PH610 for the rare outdoor gig, where I'll need more stage coverage. -And to finally have that stupidly massive bass amp that I always dreamed of in my youth.
