And I'm going to. No muss, no fuss...no whining about tone. OK, there was a little whining about tone. But after using a PF-50T and PF112hlf on our gigs (blues and jazz is our thing), I decided to bust out the Micro VR Stack with them for the first time last weekend. All of them raved about the sound but especially the look, and asked me to bring it to all our gigs because it looks like a tiny SVT. I suggested using the cab with the PF-50T, and the BL says, "Then it won't look like a tiny giant Ampeg. And if you ask me, you sound better with this than the other cab." He was smiling, but he was serious. And he was right. It won't. And I did. I get it. I love a tight looking stage with a little gear scenery, and I like bringing the gear that sonically works best for the band overall. The 210av is my best cab for the job but the Portaflex and SVT looks do clash. Certainly not going to rush out and buy new gear for a new band but I'll bring whatever they think works best from my stash. It makes everyone feel good about the job you're doing if you bring the gear they like best. Now I'm definitely going to bring the tube amp if the stage is big enough to where I can hide it, but that's not always the case with us. The hard part is when band members want you to use something they own that's a piece of crap, I'll grant you that. But when you do a lot of fly gigs you get used to having to play whatever piece of crap gets thrown at you, so I'll at least try it and see what I think. Maybe I can get an idea of a sound they're looking for with my own gear. And maybe that piece of crap turns out to be better for the band than your stuff. But as long as they don't expect me to spend any money on pleasing only them, I'm cool with giving it a shot. I know it's still going to bug some of you. But by and large, it doesn't happen often, and I really don't mind trying something new on occasion. But if it does, then what I suggest is to only own stuff you enjoy playing on. That's a major reason why I don't mind bringing what they want.
