Friday my band had a gig in a medium sized club. I thought...FINALLY...I'm going to get to crank my super 17. Nope....no doing. None of our stuff was miced...and I was still at the 12'oclock area for my amp volume. With humbuckers, my guitar volume was still on 3...UGH! With the Tele volume I was up around 3/4. My tone was still pretty damn good...but not like when I'm in the sweet spot with that amp. So I started thinking...is anyone else having this challange? I mean...we are pretty damn loud at times and I'm still not even coming close to diming a 17 watt amp. I don't know how I ever used my 50w JCM. It sucks to not get amp overdrive... What are you gigging with ...and what are your various volumes set at? Are you playing very large clubs? Is anyone else having this problem????
