Re: Band PA?

Well, well. The percussionist turns out to own a PA setup. We played a pub last night at an open mic and it certainly was BYOPA!

Re: Band PA?

I'm getting pretty convinced to buy a pa now, I want modular as possible. So two powered speakers like the 15s... but smaller maybe, for cafe gigs. No subwoofer, but just a mixer. Is it possible to set the speakers just behind the vocalist so no need for a foldback? EDIT: that will bleed into the m...

Re: Band PA?

Ive kind of collected bits and pieces over the years to have a PA that would work. Sometimes borrowing what I need but these days we have a fairly decent and compact system - 3 x RCF 15s and an Allen & Heath Mixer. I also have a little Mackie Mix 8 desk for cafes etc. The sort of stuff we do sounds...

Re: Band PA?

Wow, go you Bazz, that's great! A quick glance at the calendar and it looks like 3 out of 9 gigs this month have their own setup. That setup varies from a full house PA and operator down to speakers and a power amp that you plug your own desk into. Last month it was 2 out of 7. So lots of our venue...

Re: Band PA?

With our band we all chipped in using gig money to buy our small PA. As we’ve been more or less gigging weekly for almost 2 years now it’s been a great investment as most our gigs have been at venues with no PA. As a jazz/funk/soul band we are generally are playing at restaurants, cafes and wedding...

Re: TO ALL WORKING BASSISTS

I think like a lot of industries, the musician industry will continue to be disrupted. I think you're holding onto a dream that you will be treated well and not exploited. This kinda casualisation of work with few protections or worse no pay (internships) are become so everyday across the board that...

Re: FIFA World Cup 2018

Mbappé (French player) did get a yellow for an Oscar-worthy performance. Saw that. Deserved it. France v Belgium the winner of this game will win the cup Yeah I tend to agree, but this Cup has shown all of us, that favouritism counts for nought. I think this cup has shown us that whilst the gap bet...

Re: are nut slot hieights misunderstood?

Yeah most factory stuff is on the high side, and with low and mid-priced stuff, the angles are also often a bit dodgy. But yeah, they have to put the guitar on the wall in a shop and have it play ok with all sorts of players. Especially all those guys that pick it up and slap the crap out of it in ...

Re: are nut slot hieights misunderstood?

I recall seeing a youtube tutorial by a well respected luthier who thought the same thing about nut hight and most factory produced basses. His tip was to press the second fret, and look at the space between the bottom of the string and the first fret. It should have just a tiny amount of space, ju...
