Tunnels Backline

Recommended Posts

Hello.

Seeing as I'm due to be playing The Tunnels on the 14th January, I thought it'd be wise to ask if anyone knows here what sort of backline they have in terms of the drums?

Any info would be appreciated, ta.

the bass amp is a carlsbro combo with a 15" speaker. i had troubles getting it as loud as i wanted, though that could have been my bass (it's active... though i thought the battery was pretty recent...).

probably best all round to take your own Amps and shit rather than rely on the venue's if you really want to get a particular sound

Looks like I've got a fair bit of stuff to take with me then.

Stool' date=' stands, pedal, cymbals, myself.

What about a snare and stand?[/quote']

there is a house snare. As far as I know the stands arent that bad. But im not a drummer and never had a proper look

If not taking stands be sure to take sleeves felts and wing-screws. There are rarely any at venues and your cymbals could seriously suffer if you don't use them.

exactly, no need to take whole cymbol stands, thats is just creating shit to lug about with you, 4 or 5 double braces stands arent exactly very light

id rather take my own stands then let my cymbols get damaged because of shit stands tho.

Best idea is really to take your own otherwise make sure you have sleeves, and felts, in fact they are something you should always have spare just incase, kef is very very bad for this as well.
