I play in an acoustic blues trio. We got an XR18 last year and we're (I'm) loving it.
Live our line up is usually me on EUB and Vocals on stage left (sometimes doghouse), Rob in the middle on acoustic guitar (DI), National (SM57), Banjo (DI) and Vocals, Dan on the end on acoustic guitar (DI), Mandolin (DPA4099), Kick Drum (Audix thing), Harmonica (Bulletini mic) and Vocals. Everything goes through the PA.
So we've got a lot of mics on a stage which is often about 6mx4m, playing venues of maximum 200 at the mo (pubs, bars, etc).
Our first generation HK LUKAS has failed twice recently so we're looking to replace it. One of the guys in the band has suggested a pair of RCF 710s, no sub. My research has suggested that to get the kick and my EUB sounding good, we're gonna need a sub.
Is a pair of 710s a good idea? What would you otherwise suggest?
