Just wanted to let you know that I've joined your ranks and now own my own PAS! I did purchase the B-1 and am glad I did. Took it out of the box on Saturday and did a gig. It was an awesome experience! What a thrill to be able to hear myself without any tonal coloration at all. The Roam sounded great and the only negative aspect of using it was the occasional feedback when I turned ( a problem with the mic not the PAS) Did notice a few times the "pop" that Louis had mentioned in a previous thread. Not sure what to make of that. But overall, it was fanstatic and the best part was continually asking the guitar player (who was standing next to me) "You sure I'm NOT TO LOUD"??
Thanks Bose for a great product!
Congratulations. You're going to love it even more as time goes on - especially if you can get the rest of the band to go along.
Just curious - did you find that you needed to roll the bass off pretty hard on the Roam? Mine seems to pick up a lot of key thump, particularly on bari sax. I had to roll it back to about 9:00 on the remote.
I'm so used to adding a little bass to my sax mic, and it seemed strange to go the other way, although I can't complain about the sound. I also rolled the treble back to about 11:00, and that seemed to take care of the feedback issue.
You shouldn't be hearing ANY "pops" at all. Since you are, it means that either your trim level on the Bose or on the remote control is set too loud, OR the mic itself is overloading. If you determine that it is in fact the mic, you should call Marty at AMT and tell him. He might let you try another mic (same type) and it might not overload. Read towards the end of my long thread about how he told me different mics could overload and others won't. I am very surprized to hear that a Sax would overload their mics. A trumpet, yes, but not a sax. The SPL level isn't as high. You got real pros that play real hard using those Roams so if it is the mic, Marty would want to know. Let us know how you make out and remember - it should not pop at all ......ever. If it does, something isn't right.
