    Carlsboro cobra head - not bad. Does the job for vocals and handles 2 ohms nicely.

    No need for our own PA really. Very few venues don't have one. :hyper:
     
  8. I'll see what I remember....

    me:

    jazz bass, precision bass or mustang bass
    trace eliot 300watt combo
    zoom 506-510 pedal (any number between 503-510 really)
    bass podXT

    guitarist:

    Epiphone les paul special
    challenge rickenbacker 330 (on loan from me)
    crafter electro acoustic (just acoustic now...the electro parts not working)
    2 cheap acoustics
    bloody loud souped up marshall head ("accidentally" swapped with a Motorhead tribute we once played with)
    marshall 4x12
    3x HH 2x12
    some AKG vocal mic

    keyboard player:

    proteus 2000
    roland jv1010
    a large yamaha or roland keyboard with 88-hammer action keys
    a smaller keyboard similar to above...
    (not that sure - he buys and sells stuff every 4-5 weeks...so I'm never THAT sure!)

    drummer (used to be the above-mentioned keyboard player):

    drumkit
    cheap d-112 copy (on loan from me)
    superlux studio condensor (on loan from me)
    sm 58 (on loan from me)
    another sm 58 (on loan from singer)
    superlux like mine (on loan from singer)

    band purchases:

    1200-watt soundlab powered mixer (actually mine - not seen any money for it yet)
    secondhand drumkit (better cymbals than those plastic ones that come with a kit when you buy it..)
    2x 600-watt speakers
    400-watt power amp (for drums - singers amp)
    2x double-12-inch 400-watt subs (again, singers)

    should I pull half my stuff from our gear list? - if anything happens to that desk or those mics then i've got nothing...

    I am not sure exactly what the other members of my band are using, for sure.

    Ampeg SVT 4 Pro
    Ampeg SVT 410HLF
    Korg DTR 1000 tuner
    BBE Sonic Maximizer
    Furman power conditioner w/lights

    Guitarist #1:
    Fender half stack
    2 guitars (Washburns, methinks)

    Guitarist #2:
    Randall half stack
    2 guitars (Ibanez and Epiphone)

    Drummer:
    high end Tama kit
    DW 9000 double pedal (I think)
    Gibraltar rack
    Zildjian cymbals
    Sennheiser drum mics

    The PA:
    (4) JBL SRX series dual 15"+horn cabs
    (4) JBL SRX series dual 18" subs
    (2) Crown Macro Tech 3800 watt amps for the subs
    (2) QSC PLX3402 amps for mids
    (1) smaller QSC running the 4 horns
    Mackie 24x8 FOH board
    Mackie 16 channel rack mount monitor board
    (4) Yamaha wedge monitors
    (2) Crown power amps for monitors
    Shure IEM systems (used instead of wedges most of the time)
    (3) Yamaha 900 series effects processors
    DBX compressors and EQ's
    DBX DriveRack PA
    100 ft. snake
    24 Par 56's and 4 Intellibeam lights

    All hauled (with the exception of guitars and basses), in a 16' tandem axle enclosed trailer.

    I have a couple of different projects going, but the only variable in them is in the guitar players. The drums, bass, and PA remain the same in all of them.
