Hey guys, Just wanted to share some pics from the mini-tour I was a part of a few weeks ago. I played bass with a Christian praise & worship band called Exodo. We played 7 concerts over 10 days. I had such an incredible experience!! It was my first visit to my home country (I moved to the US when I was 4 years old). I took my AB-II with a flight case. The backline bass rig was varied from a 1x12 Laney combo to a GK 700RB-II with 4x10 & 1x5 cabs. I used a Radial JDI only once where the sound tech wanted to mic the cabinet and I told him why, let's go direct. Other than that, the amps carried the rooms where we played. The Dingwall attracted much attention to say the least. Every bass player wanted to know about the slanted frets!! They would also comment on how low but solid and clear it sounded in the mix.

Looks like it was an adventure! I can't believe that all the equipment was put in the back of an open SUV/truck! It's a good thing you ended up getting the ATA flight case.

I had no worries at all my AB-II would get damaged. The case is very heavy duty. Wherever we parked for lunch etc, we kept the truck in plain sight. Every item was tied together (twice through) for obvious reason! :)

Very cool. You guys were busy (and probably tired after all that!). Went through the whole album - very neat to see. So you only brought the guitar and some pedals and amps were provided?

It was tiring - we'd turn in about 2am every night and get u the next day around 9am. So much family and people to see during the day, including day trips and sound checks. Concerts usually started around 7pm and went through 10-10:30pm. Then we'd go have huge dinners until past midnight! The people love you with food in Ecuador!! Yep. I took only my bass, a Boss TU-2 tuner, and a Radial JDI inside the flight case. Bass rig was provided by each church. I also brought along two extra sets of Voodoo strings, a 4" wide Italia strap (I lost mine a few weeks before the trip!), wire cutters (for string changes), two spare 9v batteries, Dingwall tools baggie, and a polish cloth. The flight case weighed in at 48 pounds or so, just below the 50 pound limit.

I was in Guayaquil for about a week on business a year or so ago. A very beautiful city, especially the Malecon (river walk), which is very nicely done. Good food too! Must have been a lot of fun.

Very cool. Yes, the food is delicious! I tried something new at every meal. We drove by the Malecon one night after a concert but believe it or not we were so busy playing concerts and meeting up with friends that we never made it to the typical tourist spots of Guayaquil! Next time.

Typical set was 10-12 songs. Each church would have their main worship team up first, then a message from the pastor, and then Exodó (our band) would go on last.
