L1 Model II or two L1 Compacts for this unusual venue: Spoilt for choice!!
This may seem a pretty daft question but it has actually got me in mixed minds so I am putting it out there to gauge how you guys would do it....
I am doing a gig in a village hall on Saturday, I've been to look at the hall because lets face it, these old village halls are renowned for dodgy electrics and access etc, but this one is pretty smart as it goes.
This is my dilemma....
It is an odd shaped room, I have posted a picture of the hall to give an example, the stage is in the far left corner which means anybody at the extreme right of the room will not have view of the stage!
Setting up off stage is not an option because there will be tables and chairs right up to the front of the stage, the only area I will have to place anything off stage is next to the steps to the right of the stage.
The ceiling on the stage is low but is just about high enough to accommodate my Model 2 if I decide to take that although it will be tight!!
My initial thought was to load my pair of L1 Compacts instead of the M2 and site one on stage with me to act as monitor and feed the left side of the room and the second on the floor to the right of the stage near the steps to feed the right side of the hall.
They aren't expecting any more than around 75 people so it isn't a huge crowd and as it's a country club it won't be particularly noisy.
So how would you guys handle this sort of gig?
Either Model 2/B2 on stage behind me or both Compacts placed to fill the odd shape of the room.
I don't generally need to ask such a dumb question, I generally always use the Model 2 at just about every gig but the shape of this hall is actually making me think that this could be one of those rare occasions where the Compacts come into their own.
I am sure the M2 on it's own would fill every corner of the hall even if placed behind me on stage but I am sort of thinking that in this venue the two Compacts might be a better option.
As ever I am happy for any feedback.
