I do a lotta desert gigs and I usually rent a Honda EU 6500 from my buddy for only $250. Problem is he's selling it. So I'm gonna have to rent generators from elsewear or buy one. Any recommendations on good generators to rent? Last time I was in the desert my rig didn't exceed 1600w, so I think I would be fine with a 4000w generator.
An important question - does the genny put out a TRUE sine wave or a MODIFIED sine wave. A genny with a true sine wave is the only choice for audio. do your research before buynig. Or renting
You will hear the difference right away, in the form of noise. Lots of buzzes.
Admittedly I know way more about linear supplies, but I just cant figure why audio devices would see a difference if the AC is a step function or a continuous one.
Nick, are you familiar with "dimmer buzz" issues? you would think maybe that all the power supply filtering would take care of that but sadly at times the audio system as a whole is affected. If you have ever had a frantic time just before a show swapping cables, reconfiguring equipment, and adding inline transformers to eliminate or reduce hums buzzes and whines you will understand why someone who has gone through it would make recommendations for 'true sine wave' power sources.
and the DMX was running down channel 42.
