How loud are they?

#209042 1 year, 12 months ago
I have seen the dead in their various incarnations since the early '90's, but all performances so far have been outside. Volume levels in those settings have been more or less perfect, loud enough but not too loud. Does this change when the boys show up to play indoors? I ask because I will be at the BGA for the NYE shows. I want to be prepared!

Im pretty big on the music being loud. I think you will be satisfied on nye, especially if you on the floor. Its never loud enough for my ears though, anywhere
And I'm going to sit right here until I die

Furthur is not that loud.

Widespread on the other hand indoors is deadly. One time it was so loud my fillings in my teeth felt like they were going to fall out. It was torture. People were begging for ear plugs. Way too loud.

It would be nice if they were louder to help overcome the chatter.

Here here...........stop the chatter.

I agree with Denver Man, Furthur is not that loud. I too like it loud and wish sometimes it was louder. Maybe though that because I am sure I have hearing loss from my days of Playing in the Band. Man, it would take like two days for the ringing to go after a gig back then.

Louder and cleaner. They could use a lot of both...like the old days. You still had to yell to your neighbor so they could hear you, but the music was clean and crisp. Healy. He knew his equipment. He tuned into the character of the venue and made full advantage. I miss it. I don't just want it louder for the sake of loudness. I also want the signal to respect the music played.

EDIT: and to answer the question, no worries about needing ear protection or finding a level of discomfort or fatigue. Furthur doesn't cart around enough equipment to get to that level.

If it's not loud enough for you- go to the back, all the way to the outside hallway... they always have speakers out there for the two most rear doorways.... that's where the real party is !!!!

I'm an ear cupper to boost sound, especially the high end. Makes me look stupid. But I'm kinda used to that.
