I can't back this hard enough.
I have a Kemper and a FCB1010 with the Uno4Kemper chip in it which I use straight through the PA/wedges at 90% of our shows. I also travel with a .44 Magnum in case I need to run through a cabinet, but it's rarely necessary. I live in The Faroe Islands, so I have to fly out to basically all our shows which means that I can't travel with a cab. I got a good friend of mine to build me a custom flight case for the KPA + floorboard and I couldn't be happier:
I have been considering picking up a Pod HD-500 for certain gigs though, simply because it's lighter and smaller.
I don't tour, so enjoy my buddy's tour shit:
Yamaha birch custom absolute, ziljian A custom and K custom cymbals (chinas are oriental and an A custom)
Line6 G90 --> Kemper -->PA for both guitars, controlled by a FCB1010
I also would like to try out the IE route...but I am very afraid of blasting things to much and never be able to work as an AE again
Here's our bass/guitar/iem rack.
Below the pullout drawer is a rackshelf where our wireless receivers are mounted.
Everything is prewired to an xlr panel in the back so when we get to the venue we just patch into whatever stagebox is closest and then we're done.
Hey...wait a sec....
I'm gonna just throw this out there and say fuck bands that consistently ask to borrow gear. That shit gets annoying.
I can honestly say I've never played a show and asked another bassist/guitarist for any sort of gear because I was always prepared.
One guy asked if he could use my bass because I was the only other guy with a 6 string... I asked what tuning he was in (to be nice) and it was way different than mine and I didn't want that to screw up my neck so I had to say no.
And it wasn't that something was wrong with his bass... He just straight up forgot to bring it...
How the FUCK do you forget to bring your instrument to your own show?
Ok, forgetting something after loading back out of the venue - I can see that, it's happened to my bands int he past.....but straight up forgetting your guitar at home....?!?!
And that drum kit posted above.....Staind, aye?
And yeah who the fuck forgets their instrument? I have had sympathy for dudes that have amps get fucked right before the show, but instruments?
