The Short Stack

Euphonic Audio VL-208 and VL-110 stack powered by the Thunderfunk TFB550-B

Doug call's this stack "The Little Guys" because the whole stack is only waist high. Read more about it below...



What does Doug think about Euphonic Audio? Check out Doug's own comments:

"I play for this one particular show every year for 40,000 people. There are many bands there. The first time I did it several years ago I showed up with my little Euphonic Audio speaker stack, consisting of the VL-208 on top of the VL-110. The sound crew came up to me and told me I could just use the Ampeg stack that was already on stage. They literally laughed at my "little guys". I told them that if it is all the same to them I would rather use my rig, especially since I endorse them. They told me that I would not be able to hear and they had no in-ear monitors. So I hooked up the little guys and we did a soundcheck. I got swarmed by the monitor guys and the front-of-house guy. "What in the heck are those bass cabs, they asked?" I told them they are Euphonic Audio - made by some Princeton University Physics Professors. They said, "dude we don't even have you in the mains and there is plenty of bass!" Needless to say I am proud of my little guys. I'm not saying that there are no other great sounding bass cabinets. But the Euphonic Audio cabinets yield the best tone I've heard, and throw up a wall of sound that is unmatched by cabinets twice the size. It is literally shocking what these things can do! And, as a bonus, these cabinets put out an even volume from low B to high G on my 5-string basses."

* Quote from Doug about Planet Waves cables: "I tried Planet Waves cables from D'Addario but they were damaging the input jacks on by basses. For fully enclosed jacks, the only fix is total replacement of the jack. Spend the extra dollars and get Monster Cables. It's cheaper than repairing your basses. I had to have four repaired."
