Terrapin from Friday

Postby playingdead » Sun Jun 08, 2008 5:31 pm

The experiments continue ... this is with a Real Tube Reverb, Trio and Crown power amp.


This was from Friday's show. Changed out both E-120s for Saturday's show, and discovered in the process that the damn cabinet was wired backwards ... negative was to positive on both speakers (JBLs are wired backwards, God only knows why), so they move in instead of out when you apply voltage.

It was not out of phase(both speakers were wired the same), but I'm thinking maybe that's been thinning out the tone all along. Unfortunately, on Saturday, the soundguy unplugged the MiniDisk before I had a chance to save the file, so we lost the board. Might get it off the camera though.

We raised more than $20k for the foundation set up to honor our late keyboard player and research his cancer, so it was a very successful weekend.

Comments welcome ;-)

Sounds pretty damned good for having the speakers reverse-wired!

Srsly, that's some good stuff; especially enjoyed the Supp jam out of it.

Congrats on raising the $$ for a great cause.
Seems like I've been here before...

i agree with chuckles. sounded great. wish i could have been there, especially that show on the charles by the museum of science on saturday. Great place for a show.

i actually thought you were going into NFA at the end of terrapin.

do you have any sound bits from the acoustic set? I'd love to hear some of it.

Excellent sounding guitar!
Such a long, long time to be gone, and a short time to be there...
