I left one of my blue dongle cords behind on a gig, so I went to Sam Ash to see if I could find a replacement.
I'd been their earlier in the week for xlr outs and knew the soundtech was an opinionated jerk because when I asked about monster cables he went on and on about how monster cables are <bad> and his choice is the best....blah blah blah. Whatever you sold me.....even though I never had a problem with my monster cables yet.
So, anyway I go back to get a blue cord and the same guy is there. They didn't have any 4 pin cords and then I mentioned what it was for. He then says, and I quote, "bose... bring other sound equipment, they should stick to radios."
The teremity of some people. he just insults my equipment but then expect me to give him business. Sorry, I won't go to sam ash anymore bucause of this jokers out right rudeness.
I went on to tell him I use it for small and mid sized gigs, they aren't meant for arena sound. He's like, "no you can't use them for small and mid sized gigs even."
I almost snapped, but held back most of what I wanted to say.
I just looked at him and smiled and said, "you don't know what you are talking about. That's B.S. (but the full words) I've used them for dozens of gigs and got nothing but compliments on my bands sound. I guess people were imagining things"
"You just need a good sound guy." He says.
I went on to tell him the reason I got them is because of, "sound guys", "who are too busy looking at girls and drinking to run sound right."
Anyways, the teremity of some people.
Funny most of the bose haters I've run into online and offline like this guy weren't even musicians, but sound techs. I don't even think this guy plays. Every band and audience I've played in front of loves the sound of our bose systems.
Last time I was at sam ash. he went on and on bragging to some co worker about setting up sound for a couple of venues. Even funnier when I walked in he was showing a PA to some guy and his idea of great sound was ear splitting volume in the live sound department when there was only 4 people in the whole room.
