I kinda have an interesting problem and wonder if some of you may have a solution. My teacher and I have been trying out different cabs, amps and such in the effort towards better tone. In many different spaces, everything seems to work fine. But in the club where he holds a weekly jam session, good sound is hard to find. I'm sure some of you have experienced this before so maybe one of you will have an answer. Everything we've tried seems to always have some sort of drawback. When using a AI Coda on stage, the bottom end is inconsistent in some places in the club, and great in one tiny spot away from everything else. My teacher has tried using a Clarus head with my Flite 10" cab or an Aguilar Cab (a 12" speaker) and he seems to lose all low-end power. He used to use a polytone amp and that seemed pretty consistent but we wanted something more hifi. Here's some more variables: 1) The Room - bar/restaurant space with tables and chairs enough for about 30 people. There's a curtain behind the stage. The room is rectanglar with the stage in one corner. The band faces width-wise to the room. 2) The stage - the stage is a raised platform. Probably hollow inside. About 10" high. This is what I'm guessing that eats up alot of sound. There is a PA + mics for the vocalists. The baby grand at the very end of the stage is mic'd too. 3) The band - usually a trio or quartet will be playing. Drummers that play there usually aren't that loud. At first I was thinking maybe the cabs we're using aren't good enough or not set up right. I've noticed that the Flite (as much as some of you are not into them) needs to be coupled to a floor otherwise it loses it's bottom end. So I haven't been able to try much in terms of raising the cab off the ground. Putting the coda on it's side wasn't any good either. I have an Epifani UL110 and I'm hoping that it'll be the silver bullet. Suggestions?!?
