Rustique have simplified their equipment set up, with all instruments now controlled through their own deck. Determined to maintain the true 'acoustic' sound of their instruments, the band have purchased new equipment to help standardise the set up.  In small pub settings, instruments will remain unplugged, with just the vocals amplified. For larger events the complete sound system can be installed, and levels checked in 20 minutes.
