the 10th of april, my metal cover band will have it's first gig it will be in a bar, about 4 meters wide, and 15-25 meters tall. it has a low ceiling. the stage is about 30 cm higher than the floor. there will be a small singing amp, the rest of us will be playing our own gear. drums will go unplugged. our rhytm gutiarist uses a 120W brunetti valve stack, with 4x12". lead guitriats 100W trace elliot 2x12" combo. i myself use a 400W Trace valve stack with 4x10". we are a bit concerned how to set things up. we fear that we will blow our sound straight on too people. first rows hear everything loud, back rows hear nothing. we could hire some small PA or whatever. we dont have any DI's or something ourselves. what kind of setup will give us reasonably sound? any ideas to make the sound go in the direction of people's ears instead of peoples waists?
