Taking the truck pack to a new extreme
« on: March 06, 2007, 04:18:13 pm »

So Tom and I did a "smaller" gig yesterday. I didnt have the van, so Tom brought his truck down to help me out. I only was going to bring 2 subs and do Yamaha's on sticks to save space. But, going  from filling a van to his smaller truck was a challenge. We were kind of puzzled about how everything was going to fit at first. But after some measuring, well, just look:

Yes, it fit....

...Well, almost:  Very Happy

Taking mobile mixing to a new extreme as well

Got everything in the back except the board.
So, I rode with it on my lap for 40min out to the gig.
Good thing we didnt need any processing racks or a big board.  Laughing

But, once show time rolled around, it was quite packed:  Rolling Eyes

We rocked a crowd of 35 people all night.

Take about an unorganized event. No one knew what was going on when. There were 2 dance groups, 3 bands and a fashion show that never took place. All in all, it was a pretty boring night. At least it paid well and we were home by 9:30.


Oh, and how about a board shot:

That's what the back of my Astro Van looked like when I went on tour with my group.
4 guys, and a small system like that, w/ amps and drums!!! Good Times.

I've seen 54' trailer packs that looked just like the Dodge pack you have pictured.  Not good times.

Yes, and the worst part is the dull reminder that hangs in the back of your mind all day.  You know it has to go back in and you know there is no good pack map to work from.

That's what camera phones are for.

Maybe.  Although I've been on calls where brandishing a cell phone equates to a quick trip out the door.

Evan, sitting next to your new toy is a small box under your SPL meter.  It has what appears to be 6 or 7 mic inputs going into it.  What is it? Embarassed
