Saturday August,20.....Allodial Music Festival just outside of Metropolis IL....Five bands....eight hours of music. HOTTER than blazes! One of the bands was acting as host band and provided the very nice sounding PA and some of the stage gear. I reluctantly consented to use the modern 350 watt bass amp with aluminum cone 4x10 cabinet in order to save time and make things flow better between bands. Four songs into the set....the bass drops out. Shocked Amp still working but really low volume. Stage crew boosts the volume on the amp and increases bass feed through the monitors. We still could not hear it. Tried one more song ....it just was not happening Confused .....then Fox and I went to the trailer to pull the 34 year old Kustom 250 and 2x15 JBL cabinet. All became well. Cool The Kustom also saw duty later that day as we did a 3 hour gig on the river front.I love it! BC

happy end...heck... I saw that one coming by the first line...I've lived the same thing myself...marshall amps folding in the heat...while my little kustom keeps on pumping it out...and from my rental biz..let's see..my Gallien Kruger 1001RB...best pro amp they make...poof...dead....how bout the highly touted..and exremely overpriced David Eden WT800...poof der it is! new fender pro level stuff?...don't even think about taking it out on a pro stage before you resolder all the tube sockets and other areas where the cheap wave solder really doesn't get it...I swear all this new pro gear that I'm using these days..can't get a year's service out of em..and I treat them better than I ever did my kustoms which have stood by me over countless jobs playing semi pro and even some full time tours in the belly of a tour bus and trailers..left over night in the cold and all day in the heat, damp garages, rainy day concerts..you name it..and some of em have been with me since the beginning..and being 48 years old...well..the beginning was a helluva long time ago...Kustom rules..the rest should just be embarrased...
