    Here's my setup for tonight and every Wednesday for the next few weeks. I've been playing here all summer.

    I've used this setup pretty much unchanged all summer--close to 50 gigs. The only modification was getting a bigger tip jar.

    Playing a Tap House.
    Newer place, small, lots of hard surfaces.
    Bought a Poerwerks PW50 Powered Speaker (see NPSD thread).

    It's small, lightweight and seems to sound pretty good.

    After a few 9.0% Beers, they'll think it sounds great.

    Carter S10 Pedal Steel, '72 Tele, Baritone, pedal board, SF Vibrolux....
    Oh, and a Shure 58 for my lack luster vocal contributions :D

    My next gig is tonight, in Marble Falls, I must wear a black shirt, pants and shoes.
    I know the bass player (who hired me), and the start time, 7 PM.
    So far, that's all I know.
    More details will follow soon.
    I am going to play my avatar guitar, and my Chet through my Cube 80XL.
    I'll sing through my Audio Technica M8000 mic.
    I may bring one of my Les Pauls, probable my Custom, because it fits the color scheme.
    Looking forward to it!

    They look like the best.

    The next gig is Ribtoberfest! It is an outdoor rib cook off with a lot of German beer. We get to set up on a nice sized deck in the shade. I'll probably switch between my Tele w/ a Rolling B Bender and my L.P. Junior for most of the songs. I use a RIC 12 string for a few too, all through a Vox AC15. It should be fun.

    Tomorrow night I have a bass gig, subbing for my friend Kelly at Donn's Depot.
    I'm bringing my PJ And PRS Kestrel basses, and I'll use his bass amp.
    It's a bigger rig than I normally use, a 4-10 and 500W amp.
    I don't know the make.
    I'm looking forward to it.
    I love playing bass, though admittedly, I'm no Vctor Wooten.

    Next gig is tomorrow from 11am to 1pm, outdoors, fortunately the weather should be nice. A harmonica player that I've known and worked with for years lives near Lake O' The Pines near here, and he's a supporter of that local volunteer fire department. Every year he puts together a band for their annual fund raiser, an all day family oriented thing, usually very well attended and a lot of fun. I can't remember how many consecutive years now that I've played it, along with all or most of the people in my current band. We set up on a big trailer, do an easy couple hours' show, and get fed a big BBQ meal. (Brisket and sausage or chicken, not burgers and hot dogs--for those who take offense at how the term BBQ is used. :lol:)

    Guitar gear will be my Lite Ash Tele, Peavey Studio Pro 112, pedalboard with Zoom G1, BBE Boosta Grande and Sonic Stomp, and Behringer TO800 overdrive. My vocal mic will be either a Shure 58 or Behringer XM8500--whichever I pull out of the bag first.

    Our band just added a drummer a year or so ago, and we're at that growing pains point where two of us, the bandleader and I, are combining our PA gear. He's got an old Peavey XR600E six-channel powered head, which we'll use for power. I'm taking my Phonic Impact II 12-channel board to mix at least four vocalists, two amp mics and possibly one acoustic guitar, and a couple of drum mics since we're outside.

    What I really want to do is start using the XR600 for a monitor amp only. For mains I've got a pair of 400 watt Behringer B212As that I think would sound better than his old passive Peavey 15s we're using, but the Peaveys are three way and our bandleader swears they sound better than anything on earth, so I don't make an issue of it.

    In any case, this should be enjoyable, and it's now my longest-standing gig, because we just found out we are not playing the East Texas Yamboree Street Dance this year--for the first time in well over ten years.

    I'm playing bass tonight at my old haunt, Donn's Depot, with Donn.
    I have played guitar with a cast of thousands there since the mid 1980s.
    It's great to play bass for a change.
    I'll use my PJ and my PRS Kestrel into my massive GK stack (150 W combo and 1-12 ext. cab).
    My friend Jon Emory is on guitar and he's a real hillbilly rocker!
    Our friend Beth may show up and sit in on sax and flute.
    Big fun!

    I'm going to take a Tele, a little Quilter pedal amp, and a 1x12 down to the Irish bar's open mic to sing whatever old songs will suit the room, like

    Trouble Again (Outlaw)
    Whiskey in the Jar
    Thirty Again (Haggard)
    Wild Irish Rover

    stuff like that -- over here, worn-out Irish chestnuts aren't heard as much

    Saturday afternoon sitting on my back patio with a Custom Telecaster and a Vibro Champ playing to the ducks and frogs behind my house trying to get good enough to some day gig. Might not ever happen because I am 60. Wasted a lot of years not playing but enjoying it now.

    Sunday Evening at a local dive-bar.
    The Owner has a Friend that is having a Birthday Party.
    My Buddy and I are the opening act, we'll play about an hour, maybe less.
    He will play his Ibanez ES175 copy, I'll play one of my Baritones. Prolly the Danelectro.
    We'll play through a pair of '73 Fender Champs.
    House has very nice PA and, a guy that can run it.

    After us, the local Rock Star Academy takes-over.
    The owner teaches Drums there.
    It is a bunch of guys that started late but, they really enjoy it and, put in the time.
    THis is their chance to get some 'stage' time.

    I've heard a few of them play, I think it will be a lot of fun.
