BFM cabs in a movie

#1 Post by Strange Kevin » Wed Mar 11, 2020 11:27 pm

Here is a music video for a local indie film I had a VERY small part in. (We just helped with some props)

In the background you can spot a few of Bill's designs behind the band.
Can you name them all? :fruit:

At first glance, looked to me like some Simplexx 12 (or 15s), T48s, and SLA Pros (made to look like old Peavey SP2s).
Otop 12 x 4 (Delta Pro 12-450a) 2x melded, 2x straight
Titan 39 x 4 (3012LF) 20" wide

There's some Wedgehorns in there too. WH8? 10? Doesn't look small enough to be a 6. Or is it?

They look more like some old Shure Vocal Master cabs. Those dinosaurs weighed a ton. Had the mixer, too. The SLA's are like a Formula 1 car to those Ford Pintos. I'm gonna go pay tribute to my Yoda shrine now.

That guy playing the Strat creeps me out. If someone stood that close staring at me while I play, I'd have to pop him in the nose. I get it's supposed to be A Star Is Born ripoff but the production value looks surprisingly good.

Couldn't agree more. Haven't seen the Shure cabs but the gray strips on the sides screamed SP2 to me.

:clap: Great job!
I think you got them all!

The old Peavy looking things really are old Peavy cabs. 4×10 if I remember right. (They belong to one of the band members) - would have loved to use some DRs but didn't have any on hand at the time of shooting.

Although there is a pair if SLA Pros featured elsewhere in the movie. :)

Seth got the hard ones, Jack light 10 and a couple Wedge 8's

Then there was 2 T48s and a simplex 2×12

Thanks for playing guys!

That's exactly what they are. You would get two of those and a Peavey Standard PA head. 4 channels of 1/4" inputs.

That was my first PA.....bought it brand new in 1976 to play two gigs as a duo with a girl singer.

4 - OT12 2512 Melded/NSD2005

It's an unholy matrimony between the 2

I never saw any Shure Vocalmaster in any color other than gray. Those are definitely Peavey, but not SP2, which was a smaller box with a 15 and a horn.

Here's a shot of them.....

Vocalmasters were distinct in that they were a 4x8 plus 2x10, and they had aluminum slider bars on their sides. The wiring was bizarre, with the four 8 ohm eights in series, the two 16 ohm tens in series, those banks wired parallel for a 16 ohm load, with no crossover. That made a pair in parallel an 8 ohm load for the powered mixer.

^ this is true.

When I opened them up I thought someone re-wired it

From a load standpoint it made sense, but eights and tens in parallel and sharing the same air space didn't. But they were pre-Thiele/Small, so they were no worse than most of what existed then.

That's really interesting about the Vocal masters!

I Just remembered, I actually played an electric Bass guitar through an old Peavy 4×10 just like those for a semester back in high school with the pep band.

I don't remember it being completely terrible, (it was actually better than the old peavy 15 the school also owned) but there was a reason I quickly jumped to a Jack 15 and never looked back! :)

Hopefully no BFM cabs in the fire pit. Also any tweeters in those old Peaveys (or a co-axial working with 3 similar mid-basses)?
I couldn't see exactly what stage monitors but definitely some T39/48 on sub duty and a Simplexx bass rig of some sort.
