Just got back from an Olds 97 show at a local venue, and the sound......
1st, Olds is a country lite rock band, they use teles, and have a pretty boy crooner. For some reason the sound guy thinks its a good idea to have the drum kit sound like stadium rock circa 1985.
2nd, we werent in a STADIUM!! The venue holds around 400 people.
Can you imagine listing to Ring of Fire w/ some super subharmonic bass in the kick drum going on? There was so much lowend on the kick, all i could hear was the harshness of the teles, barley any notes. This just totally kills it for me, the drum sound live is NOTHING like the albumn.
Is this because of all the new low priced gagdets out there these days.......the live guys think they need all this processing to make the drums sound extra FAKE?!?!
Sometimes I think it would be a good idea of FOH guys got their hearing tested once a year
Anydoby else notice this?
