    FRFR Question - Headrush, Yamaha, QSC?

    For out of town up in the mountains out in the weather gigs I use the Headrush cabs.For closer to home high paying gigs I use QSC K10.2s or CP8s.Modelers are secondary for me and $2k powered speakers don’t sound half as good as my 1982 JCM 800 combo.So I use what I deem appropriate.The Headrush...

    Are you still using an Atomic Amplifire in 2021?

    Going back and forth between my A6/M9 pairing and just putting a wah in front of it with the MBritt presets. I have been creating patches on these modelers live and in the studio for 30 years and the Atomic amp models are very good. Just missed an A12 yesterday.may grab a three button just to...

    Tubes amps cranked up with distortion or OD pedals in front of them have squirrels too.I used my Atomic 6 button for teaching/ practicing all day at my studio then went to a rehearsal with my 1982 JCM800 50 watt combo with an SD-1 and Blues Driver in front of it.Real amps have squirrels too when...

    What do you play when you are asked to play something?

    Lately I will play/sing My One And Only Love or A Change Is Gonna Come. It changes all the time but I have 500 plus songs in my head(book).The instructors I work with call me a walking encyclopedia of music lol!

    Boss GT1000 - Incredible String Definition ...

    I played the GTk at work yesterday for 45 minutes.Not the first time I played it.It is very very good and the size/build quality are of course beyond solid.I may have to pull the old trigger today!The gigs are coming back and small and EZ are the new normal!

    FRFR recommendations / Never mind...

    I‘ve used Maltos/JBLs/ EVs/Bosies and Posies.My two QSC CP8s are very good and reasonably priced.Acoustic/Electric/etc...they sound great.Very small and lightweight .Tough to beat.Modelers and power amp cabs I’ve tried but don’t get?My amps sound better than that setup.IMHO/TTFN/YMMV...

    Why do you not like the Headrush Gigboard or PedalBoard ?

    Nothing at all wrong with Headrush or Atomic. Failure rates? No one here really knows what those are.The constant update/free stuff /instant gratification minded group of consumers drive modeler sales.Simple as that.My Headrush Gigboard sounds/works great.My atomic units do too.I sold my Stomp...

    Are you still using an Atomic Amplifire in 2021?

    I gigged the hell out of my AFB Firebox until Covid.I am getting my Atomic 6 button ready for the gigging that is starting next week.It’s a fantastic unit with a great editor.I will pair it with an M9/Zoom 50g etc...for effects.The company is small and has a low profile but the products are...

    Does gigging when you're old even make sense?

    I will be 60 in September. In 2019 I played over 220 gigs.I can still play and sing circles around the younger musicians here.I am also a full time instructor.Music is a lifetime learning growing experience for me.But you must have thick skin/real chops and desire to do it after 50.I like to...

    QSC- CP vs K series.

    The CPs are excellent I have two CP8s.The K series are great I have 2 K10.2s but they are for full PA use.The CP8 is a killer value priced speaker for modelers.Can’t go wrong with them.

    Marshall DSL40CR

    I grabbed a vintage look older model on FB Marketplace for $250.It kills with my Thin Lizzy Tribute band.With my Les Paul Tribute it’s almost as good as my 1982 JCM800 model 4010.
