Just to give you an idea of what what kind of audio challenges we sometimes face, give a listen to this cable ramp drop
Today is the day of the Peppers wrestling match, they brought in a mat, set it up in the middle of the venue, multiple cameras and up on the big screens.
Match 1 was two of our fabulous caterers Tanya and Vicky
Match 2 was band photog Dave vs guitar tech Ian
Match 3 Lampi Scott vs me, Dave Rat
And match 4 tour Manager assist and guest bass player Sammy vs Flea
Must admit I was nervous but it truly was great fun, here is a clip from Flea’s match on Instagram
And here is a shot of Scott and I
Cool cool, moving on to the bigger picture.
On November 26th 2006 I was in this same room with this same band pondering the same worldly things but from a much safer distance of time and residency.

And may as well take the same pic I did back then.
On the sound front, the new Rat SDS30 SuperSubs are moving through production and the first batch should be landing at the rat shop in a few weeks. 30″ cone, 10,000 watts self powered and should be quite impressive to hear a whole array of them.
This enough for now, time to wander as I am now in Vienna
