  1. Interesting FRFR story..

    Yes but I do have the FRFR as my FOH mix that the audience hear because my monitor amp is turned down as low as possible, I only ever use the bigger cab for larger gigs where the 735s are at their limit, those would be gigs where with your vocal pa and amp setup would have involved hiring in more kit.
  2. Interesting FRFR story..

    That's the point I am trying to make to Al, if my kit got stolen I'd get an extra 735 and use that as my amp, cheaper than a comparable bass rig (not what you personally require, comparable on technical specs), I can't see a reason why anyone would buy a big rig these days.

    It's nothing to do with that, they get excessively more elaborate as the weeks pass, becomes comical almost, when I in Spain I don't expect them to put on an English accent when they use my name.
  4. Interesting FRFR story..

    Any system is only as strong as it's weakest link and there's some understandable confusion regarding the FRFR being used just for bass monitoring on stage, as backline without pa support and backline with pa support and all the variables of the pa system. Strangely neither me nor EBS_freak use the setup we're harping on about as such, I use either a small combo or a bigger bass amp and he uses in ears mostly. We both use RCF as foh though and we both own our Pa systems rather than band shared so the option to use the pa as backline or monitor for other gigs where we either dep or have full professional pa support would allow us to use the RCF kit. With your current kit essentially you would be governed to a venue where the drums and bass can cut through and the stage area volume has to be loud enough for people at the back to hear.

    My bug bear with presenters is the one up manship of foreign names, it started with Charlie Hebdo and I started a thread about it at the time I think? As the weeks pass we go from Charlie Hebdo to Jarrrleee Erbdoughh, the same thing has happened with the Julia Scripal thing, Hoooliaa Skreapaal.
  6. How well do low end DBs hold their value?

    How you getting on with it mate?

    "Hoshino Gakki began importing Salvador Ibáñez guitars from Spain"
  8. Tonewood worth more than gold

    I'd have it but it's a German pattern!
  9. Birthday Gig Lineup

    She looked thrilled, lol
  10. Birthday Gig Lineup

    We had a Canadian at the double bass bash in Bicester last week!
  11. It's Squier, Squire

    Pedant alert, although I'd never say it in a guitar shop it would be pronounced Eebaneth in Spanish.
  12. Interesting FRFR story..

    All joking apart if one should wish then an FRFR setup would work just fine to amplify a lute.
  13. Does anyone just use a bass & amp?

    Do you eat the beans first, does that give you extra heft?
  14. Does anyone just use a bass & amp?

    Even at small venues I go through the pa these days, if the venue is big enough for a sound engineer you should be aiming to keep your amp volume lower than the pa. The bigger the venue the quieter the stage
  15. Does anyone just use a bass & amp?

    I'd happily put my bass straight into the desk with a decent monitor wedge pointing back at me.
