We practice in a small rectangular room that is well padded. We all angle our amps up towards our ears so we don't play too loud and to avoid sounding like mush. However our amps sounds harsh this way (I know beam blockers etc.) and I just don't like it. Does anyone practice or gig with an amp pointed directly at their ears (amp stands, tilt back etc) and it sounds great for either cleans or distortions? Or is it beamy, harsh., funky, etc. What amp are you using?
