    My current rig rig is 2x12… using PA support - outside! :thumbsup:

    I did have a 2x15 setup & a 2x10 over 1x15 setup - but really never needed it all (for our purposes) + I live in a condo - so there’s *that* :woot:

    Not exactly a religious person here, but I sure love a well-played p-bass.

    Appreciate that! We try to ‘bridge to gap’, whereby, someone can enjoy the music - regardless of the purpose/message and/or listen for a ‘message’ - if one desires… hope that doesn’t sound to pollyannaish or philosophical? :)

    Truth be told - I am a ‘music first’ guy… lyrics second (gets me in trouble - sometimes) :laugh::laugh:

    Eric Clapton often sports whiskers these days. Looks god (I mean good) on him.

    Drinks? OK, are you Catholic or Lutheran?

    I caused some trouble for unthinkingly calling Tequila Sunrise at a baptist gathering. Which the band then unthinking played a version of.

    Welp- I didn’t specify what type of ‘drinks’… :roflmao: *This* (music) group represents the group I work with (Stauros) (hence my user name)… I work with folks dealing with addictions - so, while we don’t ‘forbid’ alcohol, we don’t drink it :thumbsup: or have it on stage…
    Gatorade & Iced Tea baby! :drool:

    This was at a Baptist church (I was the interim Pastor in 2020) - but we (I) don’t ‘preach’ to people about what they do… I try to help them live life :thumbsup: and know what’s bad (for them) & avoid it…
