I think they're very good for that kind of work, the sound quality is nowhere near as "poor" as someone would have you believe on this thread. For solo/duet style acts, it's perfect, and the coverage is very good, as is the clarity and throw.

Granted, it's no Martin, but it fits in a bag, and in your boot, any monkey can assemble it, and you're unlikely to get any complaints from listening audience.


I'd still rather have a pair of small EV cabs

I think this is one of the big attractions for me...

I need to cart a 76 key Fantom, a stand and some kind of amplification around. I have a little car with 2 seats and a tiny boot. I have yet to see anything else that gives a reasonable full range sound that packs down so well, apart maybe for the tiny HK thingies

When carrying in equipment to cover every inch of a restaurant, I sometimes wonder at just HOW annoyingly audible the chef's radio is when he leaves the kitchen door open :-)

You don't have to write songs. The world doesn't want you to write songs. It would probably prefer it if you didn't. So write songs if you want to. Otherwise, dont bore us with beefing about it. Go fishing instead.

All kitchens should be made by LAW to listen to radio four. This is now worldwide via the net.

When I've found my white fluffy and frumpy-looking cat, got older, lost my hair and acquired a funny eye, i'll take over the World and Make This Law.
