I played a new venue this past weekend, new as in new-new, not just new-to-me. Small room, maybe 200 people-ish. Great sound system best vocal monitor mix Ive had at this kind of venue, and the sound guy was running it from mobile apps and all. Fancy for our little town. We sound checked the bass, then he says You have any crazy pedals I need to know about, like a fuzz? Want to make sure you dont fry my speakers. Not the friendliest way to ask, but fair enough otherwise. I hadnt been able to set my levels because of amp issues, so I winged it. But just with the fuzz. I wonder if some of my synth/envelope effects would have more spikes to worry about than the fuzz pedal. Or what about an octaver? Should I have checked those, or is it just the clipping of the fuzz that endangers FOH speakers? Do you soundcheck your effects? And is it really accurate to sound check the bass by itself anyway? It seems like a lot of what sounds loud and harsh and too much during soundcheck is actually swallowed up in a mix when the full band starts.
