    Good luck! Should be great to play out.

    We've done several outdoor gigs at a local brewery and a couple vinyards with outdoor stages that have gone well. It's a different sound situation than inside, of course, so we pay an experienced friend to run sound and help with the extra equipment.

    I saw Roy Buchanan turn his amp backwards so I tried it and found out I can drive the amp a little harder with no negative volume results lol. Set one is done. Now for set 2 3 and 4!

    I do that with some cabs, changes the tone, smooths it out. You need some opening in the back though :)

    One more amp question- are you micing only the back of the speaker? If so, how does it sound?

    Looks like a great gig! So happy to see live music happening anywhere!

    It gets somewhere between the magnet and the paper of the speaker from the back. It sounds great! Kind smooths out the tone

    Only thing I wish I wouldve had for the gig today was my old steel. It wouldve been perfect. But it was still awesome nonetheless
