EV Evolve 50 vs Bose Compact & L1s

January 15, 2018

We did our final test of the Bose L1 Compact, EV Evolve 50 and Bose L12. They all sound good but clearly to everyone who heard the three, the EV was the clear winner for Music, Voice, Flamenco Guitar, Classic Rock and Rock. Everything was run at unity. Same settings to all three from QSC TM8. Thank you Scott & Sarah at Iron Plow Vineyards for letting us use the room. Taz Sellers for explaining and sharing the EV knowledge, Kathy Hull Tarassov thanks for putting up with me and helping me set up the systems and filming. The EV really was warmer and to our ears a more defined sound and tone. #teamEV #EVEvolve #EVOLOVE50 (Above- Left to Right: Bose Compact, EV Evolve 50, and Bose L1s)

From left to right. Bose Compact, EV Evolve 50, and Bose L1s.

QSC TouchMix 8

January 6, 2018

Just received my TouchMix 8 and think it’s fantastic. Mic Pre’s are great, eq so customizable and precise, reverb lush and warm. Using this on Flamenco Guitars with Pickup, Internal Mic and External Mic DPA 4099. Then run to the speakers.

Electro-Voice Evolve 50

January 3, 2018

EV Evolve 50. If your in the market to replace or need to replace your PA check out the EV Evolve 50. Let your ears tell you what to do. I don’t want to get into what’s best just letting others know for this tone junky this works. After an evening of A/B with the EV & Bose L1 there’s a warmth that the Bose did not have compared to the EV. I want to A/B on a gig and at gig volume before I decided. Don’t get me wrong the Bose still sounds nice however the EV seems more natural/ neutral. The EV Array speakers are 3.5 with neodymium drivers. The EV Evolve systems range from 37Hz – 20KHz. The Portability is much easier than my Bose and the EV will fit into two small soft bags and one even has rollers.
