      And also assumes that when I said the music is in a good place now that we don't already have that...we've had 2 and 3 part harmonies when appropriate

      since our first gig 2 years ago, although they are a lot tighter now than they were then.

          the best way to increase the value of a band is by really working on multiple part harmony vocals. It will do more for the bottom line than any gear purchase.

              What did tighening up your harmony do for your band? I would guess it really upped what you were getting. The big paycheck tend to come from playing events like daves band does. Upping the vocal game is what got them there according to his reports. When they went to the two girls up front did the trick.

                  The problem with harmony is that there isnt any room for error. they have to be spot on to be effective. In fact weak harmony is worse than no harmony in many cases.

                      Harmony is the thing that puts bands to the next level. anyone can go buy subs , but they dont have near the impact on pay as multiple part vocals.




                      but if you are playing stuff like ENTER SANDMAN with no lowend you will get sent back to your garage with no gigs regardless of how well you can sing elaborate harmonies.

                          Your point is well taken , but high end gigs takes more than that kind of music still. If all it took was subs , every bar band in the country would be making big money, and we know they dont. Way too many people try to put the big PA cart before the talent horse and just end up as a lame band with a nice PA>

                              If "return on investment" is truly what you're looking for - having high quality, genre appropriate vocals will move you up the chain far faster than investing in gear. That said however, you will struggle to deliver high quality, genre appropriate vocals is you don't have a PA that is properly sized, properly configured and properly mixed. You can typically throw money at the latter ... however, obtaining true high quality, genre appropriate vocals is something you either or something you simply don't have. If your current lineup doesn't have it - money spent on gear is money squandered.
