I know that may be the bigger models would be better, but bigger places to play already have their own equipment and they want to use it, so we are thinking about buying equipment only for smaller places.
Thats cause i am thinking about the compact.
The points are:
- Very acoustic sounding group.
- Instruments are, voice, acoustic guitar, Trumpet and Tuba.
- Places to play for no more than 100 people.
What do you think about using one L1 compact?
The smaller subwoofer would be enough for tuba?
One compact for the 4 instruments would be enough? (we can use external mixer).
How low does your Tuba go?
The Compact can reasonably get down to a
Piano English German Frequency Hz key number 15 B1 ,H 61.7354 Hz
I can play Electric Bass on my Compact and hear notes as low as
8 E1 ,E 41.2035
But the last half octave is not strong
So, how low does your Tuba go?
Reference: Note names
Apparently they can go much lower than even a B1 will reproduce, but I don't think anything would be lost in a club setting.
The tuba section in a marching band can easily be heard by 60,000 or more in major stadiums. Would one tuba not carry enough volume to be heard by 100 in a night club or bar?
I'm thinking about a venue I used to play in where the manager played trumpet. Just for kicks he would come on stage occasionally and fire up the audience, and we never miced him.
A guitar with pickup and a vocal mic might be all you would need. The vocal mic will pick up some of the louder stage noises and if there is need for amplification for a lead or intro, just back off and let the horn in closer. Any low notes that might possibly be missed by the Compact will most likely carry through the room anyway.
I think the tuba makes a great addition to an acoustic ensemble. In the hands of a good player it does everything a bass can do plus it adds a visual interest that is somewhat unusual.
A T1 or small mixer might not be needed at all. Adding extra mics might increase the chance for feedback such that volume levels would be decreased and the overall sound suffer.
My thoughts exactly.
My initial reaction was that brass instruments in general are plenty loud enough for small (<100) venues without any amplification. So, I agree that "a guitar with pickup and a vocal mic might be all you would need." In fact, I think it's likely.
Yes, for less than 100 persons can be enough, and for 300 person places to play already have equipment so...
I think Bose should focus on selling L1 to live music bars, conservatories, etc... not only musicians. Cause for a musician, having an equipment to play for 400 people is too much, case that place probably already have equipment and want to use it.
Thanks for your help
