In the same funny way guitarists have an urge to check out another player’s live rig at a show, I’ve been doing the same – albeit for portable PAs. With soundmen becoming increasingly scarce, many performers have had to rely on themselves to provide sound for their shows. 

So, naturally, I’ve been paying a great deal of attention to what other players are using in this space. Granted, I’ve been focused on smaller line array PA systems, mostly because they’re easy to set up, portable and generally get the job done with decent encompassing sound.

Paul Riario

Paul Riario has been the tech/gear editor and online video presence for Guitar World for over 25 years. Paul is one of the few gear editors who has actually played and owned nearly all the original gear that most guitarists wax poetically about, and has survived this long by knowing every useless musical tidbit of classic rock, new wave, hair metal, grunge, and alternative genres. When Paul is not riding his road bike at any given moment, he remains a working musician, playing in two bands called SuperTrans Am and Radio Nashville.
