OK, so I spend my whole life refining my tone trying this trying that playing with gain and tone settings. I decide that playing prs guitars will improve my tone, I even record my amp over and over to make sure it sounds good. Sennhieser 609s become my mic of choice for live performances because they seem to reproduce my tone faithfully.
My band gigged last night and we shared the stage with another band. The club hired a pro sound company to do sound for both bands so I'm thinking this will be cool as I can leave my PA at home. The tech hands me a 609 like I asked, cool!
So why the hell does my guitar sound like crap through FOH AND monitors??????? Does the sound tech have to be a guitar player that's passionate about tone to get it right? It killed it for me, couldn't wait for the gig to be over.
Oh and to top it off, stage was set up under a concrete highway bridge that goes over the club so there was this low mid frequency that would explode when bass guitar would hit a certain note. OMG!!!!!!
