Hi, I know S1 fans like to hear of the way other users put this great little speaker to use, so I thought you may be interested in my gig on Saturday last; (after thirty odd years, my aim these days is to carry as little gear as possible)!??
Small to mid-size bar venue, moderately noisy but I did not feel my one S1 Pro would quite “cut the mustard”. The following was to be very much a learning curve as it was the first time I had tried this.................
I simply used my S1 Pro cabled up as usual and running on battery power (1 x vocal, 2 x guitar input via Zoom MS-100BT) but then, augmenting the volume by DI’ing from the line out (1/4”TRS - XLR) into one of my active PA cabs (Yamaha DXR10).
DXR on the floor, S1 Pro on top..........the sound was plenty loud enough with volume to spare, so it seems that now, on the odd occasion that the need arises, the only extra item I need to carry (apart from the DXR of course) is a cable to power it........sorted.....perfect mini PA!
I’m not in the market for another S1 Pro yet as one is normally enough for most of my acoustic gigs BUT two big issues that I feel need to be adressed and that might just tempt me to invest in another one are, a reverb footswitch option and two, a master volume control..........(only my opinion of course).
Here’s a photo of the “rig”??
