  1. Try YouTube. Sometimes you get a tutorial together with tab.
  2. What is the suppliers Returns Policy and was it clearly displayed at the point of purchase?
  3. If you sound check in an empty room it will sound different to a crowed room due to the absorption of higher frequencies by the crowd. Also if the guitar cab does not have PA support the sound will be very directional and will sound much quieter off axis and, assuming the cab is at a normal height, will suffer from sound absorption. It will sound like the bass is too loud.
  4. I insure my gear with Musicguard and get £1m PL cover as standard but it only covers me. When asked to provide evidence of cover the certificate for my insurance has, up until now, been enough to satisfy a venue's requirements.
  5. I use the Sony DWZ system and it works very well. The sax player in the band also uses one.
  6. I use Musicguard. Never had to claim but they do cover in unattended locked vehicles and you get Public Liability cover thrown in
  7. Instrument cover with Musicguard includes £1m PL cover but only for the policy holder not the whole band. In the past i have shown my certificate and that has been enough for the venue to tick a box on a form.
  8. +1 for Musicguard. You also get Public Liability cover thrown in.
  9. RCF EVOX 8. Light, small footprint, very loud, good feedback rejection. Brilliant.
  10. Going back to your original post the problem is getting vocals to the front of the mix. Therefore you need speaker that will easily cater for that part of the frequency spectrum. Moving from 12's to 15's i suggest will make matters worse because you are moving to a more bass oriented speaker with out the benefit of a dedicated mid range driver which is where the vocals will sit in the mix. For my band I use a pair of RCF Evox 8's. Each speaker has a 12" sub with a mini line array on top. These are perfect for vocals and are good for feedback rejection. They will also handle normal (not dub) bass SPL's with ease and they are also easy to transport. You would need to get rid of your existing subs but your back and car will benefit. N

    Travel Bass

    Depending on budget a Status Streamline would work. Being carbon fibre it will still be in tune when you get to the rehearsal regardless of the weather that you have just cycled through. I have a 5 string and it is a great workhorse.
  12. I have just purchased 6 plain knobs for my RH450 for the total posted cost of £12.48. For TC spares try Mike at electronicmusicservices.co.uk Very helpful. N
  13. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  14. Are all 4 speakers identical? I'm sure that I have read about some 4x10 cabs having 2 FR speakers and 2 reduced range (rolled off treble) to reduce odd sonic filter effects?

    No treble!

    I think you have already spotted the problem "One guess is our Sound Guy likes a bass heavy tone, so lots of time spent on kick drum & high in the mix. My bass is then getting lost in this area of EQ but might be miles off the mark." I suspect that too many other instruments are occupying your frequency range and your sound guy is trying to boost your top end to be able to hear you. A loud kick drum with lots of reverb will kill anything in the same frequency range. Suggest to your sound guy that you start by turning things down (and reducing reverb) and not up! N
