I have really enjoyed reading of the reasons and paths that lead to the purchase of the Bose systems.
My decision to buy a L1 2 with tone match was pretty similar to most ie: portability,sound and set up time.
Here in New Zealand the Bose is still not well known and this forum is probaly the best way of gaining an insight into the Bose.
I used to play in hard rock bands but havn't played for 20 years or more (gulp)nowadays I play acoustic and sing in what I s'pose is a country style.
I have a 10k PA with all the effects and 16 channel mixer just for me "crazy stuff" no way would I ever play out with all that gear.
So the upshot is the Bose has given me the tools to do what I like doing again.
Hi Allan H H,
Thank you for joining the forum.
You are in good company here with many folks who have played in rock bands and have moved to acoustic solos and duos.
Singing in what you "s'pose is a country style"? What kind of music is that? (song titles?)
Please tell us about the venues where you are playing.
Do you have a web site?
Just curious - what kind of guitar(s) are you playing? What kind of microphone(s) and other gear are you using?
I have a fender acoustic and Takamine santa fe
as well as a "Strat" that I have had since 1965
microphone is Sm58.
I have had the Bose for a little over a week upon first firing it up I must say I was totally under whelmed, being used to ny other system.
My wife and I looked at each other both thinking have we sold the shirts off our backs to not sound any better!! (Laughs)However,once I set the Sm58 preset and I used the taylor for my Takamine WOW!!! fantastic.I will load the takamine preset when I have time.
because of the clarity it showed showed up some sloppy guitar playing, so I concur with the view that this system improves your performance .
I like my guitar straight and just a little reverb on voice and I don't want to be twiddling knobs and I think this system is going to tick all the box's.
I like playing are of the Australian out back
ie: longyard rider,How to make gravy,Way out west.
I still play a lot of the crowd favourites but would like to do something out my comfort zone and do a show of songs my Dad used to like and songs that I have heard over the years but never played maybe some old Marty Robins,fats Domino and such.
Hey Allan, good to see you here. I am in Wellington and available to answer any questions you may have. I also have a "Facebook" page for L1 fans. Lots of NZ content on that one. Facebook page
