Nice Kustom monitors. Must be a 60's revival band.

Thus demonstrating the reason the finish on the Kustom cabinets is called tuck and roll.

Those cabinets came in a number of configurations and sounded pretty good. What's missing is the chrome mounts with wheels on the bottom similar to the mounts Vox used on AC30s but instead made for these columns. And you're right Frank, it was very common to see these type columns on top of tables moved to either side of the stage.

Many years ago I saw a band who had a PA comprising 2 2x15 horns and 2 double horn+tweeter arrays per side all resting on top of tables stacked 2 high (may have also had chairs in the equation but it was in my youth) obviously to allow any falling equipment to land squarely on the audiences' heads. Nice!

Bob, Trevor,
Indeed, the speakers are ground-stacked (thank goodness)


I was actually referring to the stage platform itself...  I could just see a bunch of folding rectangular tables put up as a stage...

I wonder why they didn't hang speakers from those ladder "trusses."  After all, they should get them up high.

I have played on worse.  A few years ago I did a gig on a stage made out of old farm trailers and pallets nailed together.

This one is actually quite good by comparison!
