  1. You still have 12 hours, Jim: https://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid
  2. And to get back on topic, I bought........ (drum roll, please)..... The Harbinger MLS900s: https://harbingerproaudio.com/mls900-personal-line-array-pa-system/ OK, before you blast me to smithereenies, they get really good reviews. AND they were $300 (1/2 price) as a Stupid Deal of the Day today, so I ordered two for $600. Realizing that I really don't need to sink a couple grand (or more) into something that will spend 90-95% of it's time in my basement or garage, these just made more sense. They won't get hauled all over the countryside, won't have a full band running thru them and won't get cranked up to earshattering volumes, but should do a decent job of handling vocals, harp, acoustic guitars, etc without me having to grunt those heavy-ass EVs and subs. I'll let you know how they do at my next jam. Wish me luck. I'm hopeful (but not selling the EVs just yet). Thanks for your input, guys. Now, back to your mic talk: The Audix OM5 is a great mic (although I am no mic expert).
  3. Right now I have two EV SxA250 powered monitors (heavy little pigs) as mains and two cheapcheapcheap 15" subs w/ amp. The EVs sound great and will get louder than I want to stand in front of. If I can keep the new one under $1500, that would be swell. I'm looking for small club volume. I've seen (what looks like) decent ones from $1000-$1200. I'm hoping to get $600-$700 for the old stuff, so it gets me about halfway there. I like the EV stuff but there are soooo many out there that it's a lot to wade thru. I'm open to anything. We saw a band at a local not-that-big-of-a club with five - count 'em, FIVE - Bose sticks behind them. Clear as a bell, sounded fantastic everywhere you stood - but waaaaay overkill for the room. Two should have/ would have been plenty. But, RAWK-N-ROLL, right?
  4. I'm looking to downsize the PA. I've heard the Bose stick thingys a few times and thought they sounded great. The price, not so much. Any less-expensive column array alternatives you'd recommend? I'm looking for garage jam/small club size. Thanks.
  5. That one used to be mine a loooong time ago! And it looked like this when I bought it (before Murkat fixed it):
  6. 1977, #0089. Massively busted headstock, repaired by BCR Greg. Long gone. I now have Shishkov #0089.
  7. The demo sounds great. ....I DON'T NEED ANOTHER DELAY PEDAL.I DON'T NEED ANOTHER DELAY PEDAL.I DON'T NEED ANOTHER DELAY PEDAL.I DON'T NEED ANOTHER DELAY PEDAL.I DON'T NEED ANOTHER DELAY PEDAL.I DON'T NEED ANOTHER DELAY PEDAL....
  8. Nate, may I suggest some decaf? That broken screw is going to suck. If you have a Dremel with a thin abrasive disk, you could cut a slot in the top of it and - maybe - back it out with a screwdriver. Good luck!
  9. I've loved CCR since riding in my older brother's '65 Mustang with the top down and the crappy stereo cranked. I still listen to them regularly. Good one, Willie. Thanks!
