We all read, and some write, that this and that cab or amp or bass or whatever has this sound. That is not true. It is the complete system, that has a certain sound. And we tend to forget the final link in the chain: the room. It became imabrrasingly clear to me yesterday, when I took my very much disliked Carlsbro out to a tent gig. Indoors, I have never like the sound. strange resonances, drifting eq and very peculiar speaker effects occur at random. In all rooms I have tried it in. In the tent, with the grass "floor", soft walls and a rather damp speaker element, the tone was big, warm, well centered. In one word: nice! So when you consider sound, remember to consider *your* venu, and try to test your gear in that environment before buying.
