Hello all - probably me being stupid so apologies
I was in Dawsons in Liverpool today.
For a while I've been thinking about getting SS amp. I have a bad back and play almost exclusively clean in a ska band, also I often record at home at night time (so an SS amp can go straight into my audio interface instead of having to mic my tube amp)
So I've been thinking about the Jazz Chorus amps - they have a long history of use in reggae/ska.
The 120 is HUGE and probably heavier than my Blues Deluxe (though the clean did sound absolutely gorgeous). So I was having a look at the 40. I wasn't convinced in the shop that it'd be loud enough to cope with a 9 piece band. The sales people said I couldn't get a refund (If I bought it and tried it at rehearsal)...
Then one of the staff in the shop said the 40 would be fine with the volume right up but then said there might not be enough head room and said the sound would start breaking up...
This confused me - I thought that didn't happen in none tube amps?
(I did buy a BOSS re 20 which is brilliant and have a digitech Freqout coming in the post too!)
