Now I'm intrigued. A Stick and drumset duo? How very excellent.
LOL... Well, there's a Dollar rental location right next to my theatre so that makes it much more tempting?
Ken - can you see a need or advantage for bringing my own L1? It's actually a warranty exchange at ver 1. I never got around to updating. Maybe I could get that taken care of while there?
Driving from work I could bring a couple acoustic/electric guitars, pedalboard, maybe the Champ/5F1 head-speaker? Do you want/need a GNX4, POD XT Pro? Mics?
I'm a bit confused about the equipment, too. There are a lot of people saying that they will be bringing their L1's with them. It would seem to me that there should be enough systems available between Bose and us local guys, that people traveling shouldn't need to bring theirs. I would definitely like to see everyone bring all their individual "tone" tools - guitars, pedals, amps, mics, etc - but I would think we should be able to have plenty of L1's scattered around for people to use. Ken? How did it work out in Big Sur?
You're probably right about the number of L1s available. I'm bringing mine because it's part of my new policy to never take a road trip without one. I mean, what if I happen upon a small venue screaming for a quick gig? I don't want to think to myself "Man I wish I had my L1".
And considering the compact size, it'll make no difference for me whether I bring it or not. Now if I was flying, it'd stay at home in VA.
Here's the Gear List.
As gittar-jonz said, please bring all the tone making gear stuff you use or want to share with the rest of us (A DEMO !!!)
At Big Sur there were 4 or 5 Systems already at the Barn. Then Kyle brought A1s and B1s, and then some of the folks who drove brought Systems too. We had plenty of L1™s but I think that's because we did some counting before the people hit the road. We can do the same thing this time.
Skillydally - great policy -
ST - If I understand the gear list correctly, you could use acoustic/electric guitars and a small tube amp? Would a Taylor 714CE and G&L ASAT (maybe a Z3?) be suitable? I'm considering tossing a 5F1 champ clone head/10" AlNiCo cab in along with my latest pedalboard recipe? I'll make that 100% if you wanna give it a try? Maybe a baritone guitar for those times when we don't really need another bass or guitar in the mix?
If logged in, can users edit your gear list or will you take care of that?
As it stands, I'll probably pass on my XT Pro and GNX4 unless somebody knows they want to use that? I'll have an Adrenalinn and probably a Behringer X-Vamp handy which does a mighty fine job of direct guitar.
What do we wanna play???
I guess I need a little guidance from the at-Bose gang. My band has 5 L1's, with 10 B1's and 2 PackLites. I certainly don't need to bring all that for myself, but I'll be happy to bring whatever is needed for the event. Just let me know if it's needed.
Other things like congas, dobro, lap slide, case of mics (Crown CM310, Audix OM5, Sure Beta87, EV 767, AKG d5900, etc), processors (PodXT LIve, Behringer XV-amp, Yamaha DG Stomp- maybe I'll even have a Koch Pedaltone by then), etc I'll just throw in the car and if someone is interested, they'll be available. I'll bring my ProCo "Sign Off" mic switch pedal for you guys to check out too. The horn players might be interested in that as well - it's a great "hands-free" way to turn your mic off and on.
I'd love to get to hear a PorchBoard if someone could bring one.
And of course, all the cool guitar pedals and stuff that we discuss around here.
You (anybody) can edit the Gear List directly. If you hit the 'Edit' tab at the top of the page it will ask you to edit / create account.
When you follow that link - click Create an account
Just use your Bose Forum ID (Just so we know it's you!) and create a password. That process takes about 30 seconds.
Then you can edit the list.
The formatting is the same as Wikipedia, (if that helps). It's pretty straightforward.
If you are offering the use of the 714CE and the G&L - I'd be grateful. The G&L scale length is a little long for me but (okay just kidding for Doug's sake).
Hey - You could probably get the Taylor ToneMatch™ Presets installed for you and then you can hear your 714CE with the new sounds. Kuhl!
Tube amps are great, but I'll probably be wanting to check some of the other toys.
I just put it on the list in case any of the other guys wanted one.This message has been edited. Last edited by: ST,

Okay Ken. I personally own 2 of them, and I will check with the rest of the guys tonight about theirs. I'm sure they will be okay with it. We have 10 B1's and 2 PackLites.
I recently added a bunch of stuff to the Gear List, including 1 Quad Bass and 3 Double Bass systems. The more, the merrier, but I wanted folks to know that these L1™s are available...
Yes, those guitars will be available to anyone willing to wash their hands before use. If you wanna Gibson scale length - I can bring a 335 too?
Yeah, but with the Fishman blender/EQ the tone can change so much I don't see how that would ever be practical? Maybe I'm missing something?
Also, I normally use ch 3/4 when picking/grinning so my vocals can have the XLR inputs. The Fishman drives ch 3/4 just fine and the onboard EQ gives me plenty of shaping. We'll talk more in person and y'all show how I could do better...
You should be able to find a tone or two on my latest pedalboard - Steve@Bose deserves some credit for that if it's as good as I think it is for direct or amp guitar.
Now for the ugly news - I won't be able to arrive until around 10pm so if you're counting on my axes for earlier Sunday, ain't gonna happen.
'Sorry, I'm gonna be working and making money to help pay for this safari and then drive-up after my Sun mat.
PS - I'll give the Wiki thing a try but please don't hold your breath.
ASAT, what's in the Taylor 714CE for pickups?
Fishman stereo blender - mic/piezo, phase, EQ, mixer...
NOTE - I will not be there until sometime after 10pm Sun eve. You are certainly welcome to use it!
Standard Blender setup then - Crown & Matrix.
Hey Joe - you've got a private message.
Hi folks. Nadene here from PorchBoard...joined to respond to an email request I received about a post someone read. I'm not so good at the forum stuff, so please have mercy...
gittar-jonz wants to hear a PorchBoard. Bose is hosting a conference. How about we find someone from Bose willing to let me ship one to them. They can take it to the conference for everyone who wants to try it - and then they can have a drawing and give it away? (maybe let me know via email email@example.com because I'm REALLY not good at this computer stuff) Happy thumpin'....and have a great conference ! Nadene
Thank you for the lovely offer. One of us will be in touch with you soon.

Well Nadene is terrific. Anyone who talks to her will soon find that out.
This also lightens my bag a bit.
