  • Came to a VERY sad realization.

    My instrumental rock duo is going to be playing some VERY quiet gigs in the near future

    I need to rethink my rig, big time.

    Not sure my Muff pedals and multiple 4x12's are going to sound so great at sub-talking levels.

    damn coffee houses

    I did the audition with my trayer ycv-40 at 8 oclock on the dial, and they told me it was too loud, and the guests couldn't order anything. (still got the gig though)

    I seriously might be playing a Boss SE-50 through a fender champ 600. no joke

      if you are using a muff(s) for od then how about throwing one of those ehx 22 calibers on your board? then you could just bring pedalboard and a cab.

        You need a 1x12 with an inefficient speaker in it.

            lots of good ideas here.

            1. I'm thinking about just using my Barber Dirty Bomb since it still sounds good and big at low volumes.

            2. I didn't even think about the 22Cal. Cool idea.

            3. I also didn't think about how efficient that WGS BL80 probably is in my Traynor YCV 40.

            great points, gentlemen.

              It's about exposure and playing out though.

              I've been singing and playing lame acoustic covers around here at bars for years. The gigs come to me

              but..............

              I had no clue how hard it would be to get an instrumental, electric gig at high volumes though.

                  been there tried that. We had a handful of people that would follow us around (they were all musicians). apparently "normal" people just don't get instrumental stuff at all

                      Well, the thing is, there's actually a post-rock scene around here, but my drummer and I are total outsiders (non-hipsters, no beards).

                      a couple of local groups with a following bring BIG talent to interesting, small venues.

                      El Ten Eleven played a pizza joint
                      Caspian played at the coffee house
                      This Will Destroy You and Lymbyc System played at a dance club
                      Arms and Sleepers played in a college lecture hall
                      Timbre played at an art gallery

                            Play outside the venue, loud enough that you can hear it at a moderate volume inside.
