The fluctuations in the bass wave were very striking just by moving the sub a few feet in a given direction; and this was in a sonically superior room. I could really see how you could easily create unwanted noise in the normal, crappy rooms that I usually gig in.
I love the pics, it really conveys how much fun we were having while learning.
P.S., Dan(S), Tom, and Ron(jazz), love the new avatars.
To get to Big Sur from the North, you pass through Castroville, the artichoke capital of the world. ST, Cliff-at-Bose, and Ken stopped at a farm stand, and had yummy deep fried artichoke hearts as a snack.
Speaking of munching, the artichoke-rooting adventure in the rental car was a scream. ST was in the back seat with a constant running commentary going, Ken trying to drive while laughing and we finally did find a farm stand. "Let's get a box of them to take back on the plane" sez Ken. Yay. Great idea, until we see the prices: $2 each choke. Choke! We had artichokes 2 nights ago at home: 2/$1 at the Framingham Market Basket. Go figya. Some guy was buying an armload of boxes. Possibly an IBM salesman on the road thinking he had secured a good deal, who knows.
