Let's all have a good time at a more relaxed volume level.

Nah, low volume is for sucks!;)

I have got my ear plugs this time. I am so good. Crank it!
I'm in your camp too, however,
there were a few complaints last June.
It's nice to entertain everyone, not chase them to road.

Just kidding! Nothing more. I am very respectful of the majority rules. :D

We all need to protect our hearing whether we're young or "mature"! ;)

I really enjoy this event. Mostly for the comradery. There's no particular order to the jam and this can get congested at times.

My theory is that many who come don't get the chance to jam very often. It's understandable that they would want to jam as much as possible.

I'm thinking of bringing an extra 4 piece drum set, bass amp, single bin PA system, if weather permits. This way people can jam ina smaller setup as well rather than just one spot with all or nothing. .

I don't mind loud, but when you can't hear the singer and you can't stand in the doorway because it's blasting your ears, that takes away from the fun.

I took my earplugs and they worked great. A good mix that sounds good and takes into account the size of the space trumps plain volume all day.

Very commendable, however, a few things to consider;
Where to set up? On the patio next to the barn, 100, 200 ft away?
Do you have extension cords that long?
Then there's the overlapping sound which may make a mess of the aft/eveing.

The overlapping sound is what I am concerned about! It could really mess up everyone's playing!

What are you still doing up Lar? You're not usually a night owl.

Trying to decide which amp to bring given the Hawkwind, pan-galactic-gargle-blaster volume last time out.

Telecaster: through a 5 watt tweed or through a 15 watt super champ. Any thoughts on which would survive better ??

Tweed has a lot of cut but might run out of headroom pretty quick.

Plan is to take them both to the rehash factory in Sauga for a couple of hours over the weekend and let em rip see how it goes.

I'm fairly flexible for time on that so if anyone wants to hook up let me know.

Sauga location is best for parking and pretty much all highway.
