or we could shorten it to HOOMGBAADPOMAAW
For me that acronym will forever be associated with Tim Rice in the Rocky Horror Show. Not that I dress like that. Not even on stage.
Forget about the term Girl or Woman or whatever.
Two Genz-Benz 12inch speakers just died.
Excuse me sir, as a non native english speaker, I simply must ask: What is an AA member? Anti-Aircraft member?
And the OP's problem is why a brick wall limiter is in the rack that powers speakers here, especially the ACME B2's(QSC 2402 feeds 4 ohm ACME's...700+RMS into 350RMS cab).
Thank you very much both to ficelles and Inara for an explanation
The guitarist in my old band used to have a backup pedalboard that he used for bar/pub gigs where there could be a chance of damage. And he'd lay a piece of clear plastic over the top just to be safe. He saved his good one with the nice pedals for church and corporate gigs.
But yeah, I'm not sure what the gender of the drunk patron has to do with any of it.
At first, I was going to say, "Wow, what a bunch of hoo-ha over nothing. Girls, boys, whatever." And then I thought about how some people I work with like to refer to us in the band as "Boys," and how irritated I get. And then I thought how I hate being called "Men" worse. Anyway, what was I saying?
Hmmm.... i collect those cheap Ibanez Tone Lok pedals that have the knobs that push into the pedals itself, so you cant accidentally change the settings.
Ive always been paranoid about pedal EQ sliders being vulnerable to damage......this takes it to a different level though, sheesh!
So you invite a drunk on stage and then blame her for damaging your gear. Sounds like you're just as responsible as she is. She wouldn't have been up there if you hadn't asked her to join you. People who are not in bands have no idea of where they should and shouldn't step. As a musician, you know where your pedals are in relation to mic stand, other band members and so on. It's unrealistic to expect someone who has probably never been on stage to know where everything is. This is why I never allow anybody from the audience on stage.
I wasn't blaming her. I was explaining what happened. And read my reply on the first page where I mention that I blame myself.
Edit: OK, my title insinuates I was blaming her, but I completely understand that I'm mostly at fault.
I only use one pedal (bass driver programmable DI) and it sits on top of my amp head. The only people I ever invite on stage are musician friends I invite to sit in. Inviting an unknown intoxicated person is just asking for trouble.
I blame the Roland Corporation. I mean, +15dB?
Well yes your theory is of course correct and valid but in any case - who in their right mind steps over stuff anyways? I mean, do you also go to the butcher shop and start walking over the sausages? As stupid as this comparison is, it only points out the obvious. You step where it is free to step. Not over people, not over pedals, not over sausages.
Edit: In my book, people are mostly ignorant and don't care about things that aren't in their possession. They honestly don't give a damn if they damage your cab or not or anything in that regard. Just a few days ago, a tourist woman crashed into my 1978 USA fender Pbass while I was performing and landed directly on my jack input with her butt (of course, the cable was plugged in at the time). All she quickly said was "sorry", in a half absent way, while I was feeling like... "Do you, ignorant little woman, even realize how non expendable an almost 40 year old piece of hardware really is??" Of course she rather crashed into my gear (consequently into me while performing), in order to avoid an empty restaurant chair. Jesus Christoph.
Thank the gods above, my jack output was and still is ok.
sorry dude , but what you should of done was wave her of the stage not call her towards you or stage equipment ! so in my opinion its your fault your amp died on you not hers.. that popular song you where playing wouldn't be mustang sally would it ? lol.
Lol bassists are so socially inept.
I hope OP was playing this at the time:
Is this really the argument going on over 3 full pages?
That is honestly the first time I've ever hash tagged something...
