Here's a picture of me which a jealous UK DJ modified. I can't help thinking it would sound AWESOME at the summit of an active volcano. Picture taken at the lip of the crater of Mt Ruapehu, New Zealand during the 1996 eruptions. The ski down was superb!
Hello! I am a solo acoustic guitarist from CANADA and I just recently bought a BOSE L1 system. I have 2 stonebridge guitars, and a classical guitar and questions for all 3: 1. On my acoustic SB guitar, I have found a setting that is good for the instrument, the (taylor t5 setting) and that works great and all, but i just recently added a mic which attaches to my highlander pickup and I cant get a reasonable volume for percussion sounds on the guitar without feedback or a "tin" sounding click

I am in an acoustic duo. I sing and play acoustic guitar, while my partner sings and plays percussion (cajon, bongos). In the past, when we’ve performed live, I’ve used just my L1 Classic with single B1 bass module (use both a small Behringer mixer, plus a T1 for mixing). I have acquired an L1 Compact (traded an AER Compact 60 amp for it) and was thinking about adding it to the live setup. We have a couple upcoming gigs and I’m wondering if I should run each of us into a separate system. Since
Here is a little youtube vid to share.The sound is coming from a L1 classic which is behind me.The guitar is a carbon fiber CA guitar and I have a roland GK-3 pickup on it.I have a vg99 bass setting mixed with the CA guitar.A flip mino HD was used to film.The sound was recorded using only the flip mino.

We are a 3 piece classic rock band using a bass pod, guitar pod and Roland v-drums. We have no backline amps and go straight into a mixer then out our JBL MPRO tops and subs. We use in-ear monitors and love our mix. We can play at any volume because in 'our heads' we always hear ourselves at rock concert volume (sort of). People say we have a great sound and we don't have volume problems in the clubs we play in. The clubs generally hold between 100 to 400 folks. Recently, our guitar play has
Hi, First off, let me say I've been using the L1 Classic since early 2005 and it has been a true performer. I've got ripped, worn cases from all the gigs, but the system performs flawlessly. (www.myspace.com/brotherchaosstl) We've been a Duo with just the L1 classic--2 mics, 2 guitars and used the baby mixer setup, panning mics left to Ch1 preset and guitars right to Ch2 preset, using a Mackie DFX-6 Mixer and 20dB pads. This has worked great, but now we've got an additional vocal, AND my

Played at a church leading worship last night for about 60 teenagers. Everything went great. I could believe how fast I was set up and how good it all sounded. I tore down and was loaded out in 20 minutes and because of all the teenagers I didn't carry a thing in or out. Usually I don't like to let kids carry to much of my stuff because it's so heavy and hard to handle, but this time I handed each kid one piece each and we walked to the van. This is so much nicer and the sound was awesome...
Hi, I'm in the UK and as of yet, My father who is a classical guitarist hasn't heard the PAS - Although we'd like to. I'd also like your advice on 1 bose PAS with a base B1 module, and 2 guitars. Obviously, live music in the UK has just gone down - and there's very little profit margins to be gained now. :-( However, he still loves to play - and so does my Mum. The question is, will one PAS speaker be able to reproduce the sound of two guitars simultaniously, without any loss of quality? The
Hi there, I've got a question about the two L1's we have at school. My former music teacher who was in charge of all the technical things in the music department has left and so I am trying to step up to the plate when it comes to these things. Anyway, he told me that I can connect the two L1's by connecting the line outs on Channels 1 and/or 2 to the second L1 via XLR-TS (I'm ordering in XLR-TRS but I'm not sure when they'll arrive). It's been working great but I've only just read the...
I did an outside gig Saturday night at a Padre Island home residence.About 100+ people in four different locations on the property.I was using my Compact which I have owned since they first came out.My partner uses his Classic.The sound quality impressed this young lady and inspired her to come share a song with us.I also own a Classic,and a Model II,but prefer my Compact and T1 95% of the time inside or outside.
Was wondering if anyone is using 1 ToneMatch for 2 Classic L1's?? How I am thinking of using.. Plug a mic into ToneMatch channel 1 and come out of the pre-amp out into Channel 1 on the Classic #1. Plug a mic into ToneMatch channel 2 and come out of the pre-amp out into Channel 1 on the Classic #2. My duet partner can't seem to get the hang of the Classic and how to position the mic to avoid feedback (I tried showing and telling him a million times..). So, I was thinking of buying a ToneMatch
Is there a description of the three amps in the Classic L1 powerstand I can read about? I connected all three (without the sticks inserted and 2 B1s at a time) and noticed a high/low end signal coming from 1 and 2; and a low end only signal coming from Amp 3. I know that 1 and 2 power the cylindrical radiators when inserted. But I guess I assumed that if you were to use all three amps in the powerstand to connect the maximum number of B1s only, that it would only have a low end signal coming
Briarwood acoustics, one blue, one red, (Model #DR-5C QT, with ARTEC pickups) with built-in EQ, volume, and tuners. When I got to the gig, his system was setup, so we just put the L1 in the middle against the back wall. Plugged his acoustic into channel 2, my OM5 in channel one and tried a few guitar presets. We settled on one of the Martin presets...which I felt was a bit "hard edged" but as Peter plays new rock as well as older music, he seemed happy with the tone right away. His girlfriend who
Tonight I set up my classic L1 double bass plugged in all my stuff ,turned it on and started playing.( same setup same way I always do).Then 30 seconds into the first song a loud "clicking " sound started, it clicked about 4 times then the volume went real low then silence. I shut off the L1 then turned it back on and the same episode happened. All the signals going into the 4 channels were good. All the lights stayed either green or red within normal limits like always. I could find no reason
It's been quite some time since I have been on this post. Has anyone had this problem. On one of my Li Classic's the pedal has come out of the base. The unit still works and I can put it back in the base, but it now comes on. Bose tech support say's I need to send it back, but I am in my busy Wedding season like most of you and can't afford to be with out it for weeks at a time. I'm thinking it might be a simple fix. Any help would be great. Thanks' John
Ok, I have three L1 Classics. I think all have been refurbed/repaired at some time. How can I tell if they have the latest firmware and presets? And what is the best course of action to remedy that? I looked at the update wiki but did not seem to address my thoughts.
Two years ago, I sold my Classic L1 with two B1s for $1,750. I had decided to quit the "weekend warrior" music scene. I was tired of schlepping gear in and out of the variety of venues we played. I have been since talked into giving it another go. To my surprise, the best price I could get on the same rig, from local sources, was $1,700. This is pretty remarkable for musical equipment. Those of us who have been doing this for a while know that the only thing that drops in value more than a new
here soon. Here are some initial impressions after living with it for three days in the studio and out at a gig. My perspective is that of an L1® owner for nearly five years (Classic, then Model II with T1® with PackLite® and more B1s). I play solo, in several duos and a band. I perform with the T1® or the R1 Remote on the microphone stand in front of me, and the L1® is usually directly behind me. Testing Conditions The Space Most of my listening tests and comparisons were done in a space that is
In recent weeks a series of events found me returning to my rehearsal space with a Classic and Model II set up, and the Compact in my hand. I decided to set up the Compact along side the other two for some comparison. Over a period of several days I played through one then the other, switching from T1 w/ Model II, Classic with remote, and Compact straight in. I used a few different mics but toward the end was making comparisons with just an EV 767. I realized at some point that I own three

Hi, Posted this in the tech section but didn;t get a response so trying here: We are a rock duo have 2 classics, 4 B1's and a paclite and 2 tonematches. For smaller gigs we use one L1 and 2 B1's, for larger we use 4B1's a paclite and one L1, and when space allows use 2XL1's with 2 B1's each. when we use the 2 L1's we put them in between and behind us, with the Power stands as close together as possible, but in some venues that does not allow us to get "WIDE" enough from the poles to stop
