Tried the stick at a rehearsal. Not what I expected.
Here is a list of discoveries…
Know your amp – At the rehearsal I normally use an amp that is there. However… SURPRISE! When I got there the usual amp was gone and the amp available was awful. Lot’s of bottom but no highs. The stick just did not sound articulate. So could not really hear what I was doing.
Practice with your own amp on your own first… – Because I am in an apartment with thin wooden floors I can not practice with an amp in the apartment. Needc to get out and rent a room to practice in.
Know your instrument – Because the bass side of the stick is tuned in reverse and in fifths. You have to be comfortable with the tuning before bringing it into a band jam.
