I feel like I am going mad because there are so many cool amps out there that I would love but can't buy because they lack a vital feature that I need. Since I play in a two guitar band I need an amp that will allow me some way to have some sort of facility to give a volume boost for lead solos I honestly feel like a broken record but I just wish more amp builders would consider this. A boost pedal before an overdriven amp WILL NOT give a volume boost. If the amp has an fx loop and a clean power stage then I can boost with an eq pedal. If the power stage is driven, ie plexi etc then this is useless too. There is the thought of a footswitchable attenuator which would make all amps useable? Some amps do have a boost function or two different volumes which is perfect. But why do most amp builders fail to take this into account. I'd love a Komet, or a Fuchs Train, or something similar, but I can't gig with it. Any ideas guys????
