    If you just want to sit on the beach for a week, the panhandle area around Pensacola is fantastic. That also extends into Alabama--basically anywhere from Gulf Shores, AL to Panama City Beach, FL is great. Orlando is cool for Disney and golf, but no beach. I've never been to Tampa but that might be another way to mix big city and beaches if you don't want Miami.

    Woo hoo, I'm all official!

    I'm 40 this year, been playing bass for 25+ years, and started playing in church last year. Our service is super casual but growing very fast. The worship team is cobbled together from the congregation under a young woman who is one of the best disciples and ministers I've ever met. Her primary instrument is drums, but she sings and plays acoustic guitar in service. None of us are professional musicians and you can tell, but what we do fits into the style of worship pretty darn well. Our worship service is the new contemporary worship service in a 90 year old downtown traditional church. So we're not the only thing happening at our church on Sunday, we're just the newest thing. The traditional worship service is super traditional, with an amazing choir, a working pipe organ, etc.

    I have 2 sets and have used them in a miriad of settings from coffee-house to large pro stage and have never experienced RF interference. But! They are not recommended for use with pre-amped instruments. This causes an audible carrier frequency noise that prohibits use but not on all my pre-amped basses, just most.

    Good thing I'm all-passive. Sounds like they might be worth trying out at least. Thanks for the info!

    I have thought about wireless but I don't move around much and have a guy that makes me great cables to make my wired IEM set up work great...and I save a lot of money as wireless can get expensive. One less thing to worry about as I seem to be going back to as simple a rig as possible. Active bass is my only real "downfall" these days. Passive DI, wired IEM's, no effects.

    I can agree with the less is more philosophy. I started out far more complex seeking ‘quality and reliability’ for the broadcast (webcast)
    environment.



    Eventually I decided that gear took to much time to move/assemble/dis-assemble so I’ve morphed to my current setup. It also addresses nicely the lack of definition that troubled me.

    The wireless first came along as a means of hearing my gear in the room, but now is mostly a means of reducing cables underfoot, a pet peeve. Even the wireless and tuner have been reduced to the smallest and simplest form-factor I could find.

    Thanks, let me check those places. We just want to relax and do nothing. A small town with a nice beach and pretty downtown would be perfect.

    Praise the Lord that you have two services,many churches are down to a handful on Sunday that used to have two or three hundred. Many have no midweek at all.

    I’m starting to build my first pedal board and want opinions on a really good Conoressor pedal that is easy to use and sounds good.

    I have owned the EBS MultiComp and TC Electronic SpectraComp multiple times. I am just getting rid of this...Which is possibly the best compressor I’ve ever used, besides the ones built into my Trace Elliot SMX amps.
    Moving this to make more space on my board for a Sadowsky pedal. My 6th SpectraComp arrived in the mail today! LOL! I like being able to change the settings via beaming in the signal.

    Doesn’t get any easier than the Diamond BCP.

    Built like a tank. Very high circuit and build quality and an included 18v supply provide terrific, noiseless audio quality. One of those “always on” pedals that simply makes everything sound better.

    Attack and release aren’t adjustable, yet somehow it works for everything I throw at it, including upright, AGB, new and old school electric, even guitar on occasion.

    Just three knobs:

    Tone control with a frequency switch that works nicely for fretted or fretless.

    Compression goes from almost nothing to a heavy squash.

    Volume has enough headroom to work as a gorgeous clean boost, in addition to balancing levels.

    I need the Dual Band option. Being able to tone down my thumps and slaps on the lowend, but able to let my chords, triads and pops shine thru on the top end, is like butter and syrup on a half stack of pancakes to me :)

    I forgot about the Diamond comp that @steve_rolfeca mentioned.

    I didn’t have much success with the Aguilar compressor. I need it to just “Do Its Thang”, but I always felt the need to adjust the Aggie, when switching from my passive Jazz Bass to an active 5 string. Me having to crouch down during a service or performance is like a federal offense to me.
