  1. Installed Hellwig front and rear sway bars on the Ram to make it suck a bit less and a Bedrug to protect all the gear I am moving around for shows as I have 8 more concerts and a talent show to fit in before it gets cold.
  2. I played Christopher Cross Sailing on the lake today for the new neighbors that bought a little sail boat and got stuck out in the middle for what seemed to be hours. I thought it was pretty funny, not sure they agreed.
  3. I like the look of those corner clamps. I have tried several varieties and have not liked the results from any. How are those?
  4. I was just looking at a Feedback Destroyer/Monitor Manager. Seems like pretty cheap insurance. The feedback came with only one main connected that was 20 feet in front of the two mics (vocal and guitar cab).
  5. This looks worthy of a road trip.
  6. Did one of the sound setup sessions with one of the groups for the 4th of July. The guitarist insists that both vocals and the acoustic guitar come through his crappy guitar amp because he likes the reverb and tone from the amp. I then have to mic the amp for the PA. No matter where I put the main speakers and mics, I am getting feedback when bringing the volume up much. He insists the feedback is not originating at his amp, so I cannot figure out how to address this.
  7. I like the weird net sand paper from Mirka, but everything I keep seeing says they are not reliable.
  8. Question for Naaman, how has the Surfprep been? Thinking about the 3x4 model instead of the Mirka 3x4 which seems to have some reliability issues.
  9. Found a decent sawmill/woodworking shop not too far from the house. Prices seem decent, selection is good and they stock Mirka products which I have been thinking about trying. https://bullvalleyhardwood.com
  10. I am thinking they are hurting, as it was clockwork all last year, order, have it the next morning as they are only 4 hours away. They have even skipped the throw away candy bags a few times in the last few orders.
  11. Not sure if anyone else is still shopping for stuff these days, but I have to say Sweetwater service has dropped off significantly the last couple of months. Stuff never gets shipped the day of purchase like it used to and now they will randomly ignore the shipping you chose, and the delivery date stated, and just mail it USPS for arrival days to weeks after they quoted your delivery date. Has happened with each of my last 8-10 orders. FedEx was bad, but fucking USPS for expensive shit is the worst. About to drop them altogether.
  12. Service is done on the truck. Replicated all the problems and confirmed Chrysler knows about them and has no idea how to fix them so just “turn those features off”. Car wash is also broken so they are not even washing it before giving me this piece of shit back. Top notch auto brand for sure.
  13. I think I am safe with the dynamics as they are all workhorses and should survive. My next big lift is figuring out live band karaoke. I have the band setup and I can obviously throw YouTube up for lyrics, but not sure how to sync band and YouTube close enough that we do not have page turn issues. The band is all kids, talented kids, but kids with a fantastic drummer so I think I can get by having the drummer count us in and doing the push play thing, I just figured there would be some kind of service to make this easier. Also need to buy individual monitors as some of the larger bands require them but investing in another 3-5k worth of monitors seems stupid to me. Trying to find something good enough to get by with.
  14. It is super light, but wide so I would guess better than most kayaks.
  15. This looks like fun. Picking up Kasia’s new Hobie Lynx.
