So I've been playing with a modeler through a solid state for years. One thing I've always noticed is that when cranking my solid state (Ibanez tone blaster 100 watt stack) over drums the clarity tends to get really bad at high volumes. The low end takes over and it almost sounds like I'm playing with pillows over my cab. I'd like to note at sub drum volume everything sounds perfect. So I recently purchased a used Bugera V55HD head as I figured the head solid state head was causing this problem. I played the V55HD head all week. I'm playing only with a boost pedal and I have tone I love around volume 4-5, just sub drum level volume. As soon as I turn up to 5-6 to go over drums I'm hit with the same sound my solid state made....it's actually even worse. My only thought now is that I'm using the same Ibanez cab for all of this, perhaps the cab is to blame? One other option is I have the tube head set to triode as it reduces the volume a bit, perhaps going pentode would fix this but I'm away from my jam room so I can't try it. TL;DR: So my question, can a cab alone cause guitar tone, and feel to suck at higher volumes?
