    Who doesn't?
     
  4. How do you like that NADY wireless (if it is the VHF bass)?
    I bought one a while ago and let's just say it doesn't get much use anymore. :eyebrow:

    I just finished taking a bunch of shots for memory sake the last couple days.
    Switched over to Bose PAS a couple months ago and have them setup on the stage where my ex plays so I took the opportunity to get some pics of the Bose and Bag End pa systems side by side. (When we split I let her keep the Bag End's and I took one of the Carver's and bought some JBL's.)

    So while most would opine that it's hard to have too much head, how much for the BH-260?

    Already gone to another TBer (just packed it up). The Peavey ships Friday.
     
  11. Well said, well said. Just for arguements sake, the "V" on my wireless, from a distance, can look a bit like a "U." :meh:

    Anywho, nice stuff Mr. Zilla.

    I'll admit, it looked a bit fuzzy on my laptop's screen; had to look twice, but it's definitely a U.

    It's a U. The V stuff was crap, but I have to admit, I'm impressed with his unit thus far. It also goes down to 25 or 30 HZ (can't remember which right now), so my low B even punches through.
     
  14. Alright students today we will be learning about a disease know as Gear Acquisition Syndrome (GAS) This is what happens to people with GAS:
    Notice the 2 different tube heads, and also two of the same amplifiers. These are the textbook symptoms of GAS. Lets look at a few more examples...

    And two of the same tuners... :smug:

    ...and one of the ways GAS will manifest itself is with justifications demonstrated second from top. Yes they are the same amp, but the GAS sufferer actually believes that since a couple knobs are different, that they are different amps!

    I understand GAS is actually quite pleasurable for a disease, except for the ill effects on the wallet and the nagging ("You just bought WHAT?") of the afflicted's spouse.

    Can we ever hope for a cure? We need a ribbon, what color?
    Anyone wishing to join in the fight against GAS, PM for details on donating to the United Megoto College Fund. All proceeds will be squandered recklessly.
