My 5 pc band has been using a Bose Stick for a couple of years. We use an A&H mixer with it to accomodate the 9 inputs we use. It's a great piece of technology, suitable for small and medium size audiences. It has more volume than I imagined and practically eliminates feed-back issues. Bose, of course would like to sell one for every member of the band but it's just not necessary if you add the mixer. Hello from Detroit!
