Onstage Amp setup

Recommended Posts

Hello Foax,

Just trying to get opinions on what you are using for your onstage monitoring / amplification setups. I use a Behringer 1604 mixer, feeding the FOH and my Barbetta Sona 32c as a stage monitor. I'm not too happy at the stage volume mix, as it seems to get progressively LOUDER at the end of the nite!

Any thoughts, suggestions greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Tom Bitondo

Actually, this probably has to do with setting beers on the amp. As the night goes on, the amp realizes you're more into playing than drinking and starts drinking your beer. Before you know it, you've got a loud, drunken amp on your hands.

 

Seriously, I have the same problem with my amp/band. I find that keys take up so much of the sonic spectrum, that turning down a little causes everyone to play softer (unless they're drunk, then they don't notice). Of course, you have to have bandmates that actually listen to each other http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/rolleyes.gif

I play through a pair of Mackie SRM-450 powered monitors, fed by a 1202-VLZ mixer. The mains go to the FOH and the Control Room outs go to my speakers. When I know the house is mono I'll just bring one.

 

There is never an issue with my getting drowned out nor with breaking up if things get loud (my Roland KC-500 has been relegated to a home practice amp). The downside of the Mackies is they're heavy.
