We did our standard rock set lists. No 20s stuff.
If it was, I guess 20s would have to be something like Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band or even electro-swing! Nice, but exotic.

That looks great Owen. Quick question, how are you finding hearing drums with those barriers in place?

Drums are plenty loud enough with the shield AND earplugs. The cymbals & snare aren’t as harsh. Need a tiny bit of kick drum occasionally.

The singer owns it and brings it to gigs to help him hear better. Less mic spill too.

Proper stage 1.2m, excellent sound system & engineer (Jimmy) made the 4 vocalists sound divine. Also great lights & lighting guy (Andy), :thumbup:

Nice one Owen. It was a brutal weekend for outdoor gigs. We played at Tates Hawkesbury and it was still 39C under their big outdoor tent at 8pm ffs. I like playing there, but that tent is like some sort of heat trap or something. I saw that you had an outdoor gig too but hoped it wasn't in the sun - sheesh, the things we'll do :)

Here are a few clips from the Sweat Lodge (sorry, aka Tates Hawkesbury Hotel, one of my favourite venues) on Friday night. It's right at the limit of what our little PA is capable of, but never mind. I'm also not sure what is up with the video/audio sync, sometimes it's ok sometimes it's a little out, seems dependent on what you're playing it on. Anyhooz:

Having fun with it. I've probably used it on half a dozen gigs so far. I like it a lot in bigger open venues or outdoors. It feels a little hard to control in some of tight little boomy venues (it's not alone there, I have a couple of venues where many basses have tried and fallen by the wayside, by which I mean, of course *I* have tried and failed to pull a usable tone). We played one such venue on Sunday night and I tried every combination of pickups, preamp and my HPF and I seemed to be constantly juggling between obliterating everything in my path :lol: or unable to hear pitch very well :hmm . I have a lot of "baggage" to unlearn before I get the best out of it. Things work with it that I wouldn't expect to work and maybe a little vice versa. The Gibson pickups drive my HPF and amp very differently to anything else I have used before.

I wish it had a blend control instead of the errr what is it? Phase switch? The OBF2 sounds fabulous, very nearly transparent, but the bass pot gradient is just .... well its steeper than any onboard pre I've owned. Quite the hair trigger. Handle with care :)

It's a fun beast for sure, enjoying it a lot.

Hey Mike

The switch you're unsure of is a high pass switch. It lobs out alot of the lows in similar way to newer Rickenbacker 4003 basses. Did you try that in the boomy venues?

Glad you're enjoying it, venues aside :)
