I played my first live gig last weekend, so my first experience with a PA.
I've only got a small amp, so was concerned it wasn't going to be good enough. It's this one from Cornell:https://www.gear4music.com/Guitar-and-Bass/Cornell-Romany-10-1x10-Guitar-Combo/1R66
- Power:10 Watts
- Speaker:'Jensen CH1070' x 10 inch Blue Label speaker
- Valve: ECC83 x 1, 6L6GT x 1
- Input Impedance: Input Hi 2.2 MegOhm
- Controls: Pre-amp Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble
- Output: 10 Watts RMS, Class ‘A’
- Cabinet: Plywood-shell and baffle
However, I was told that it wouldn't be a problem because the amps would be mic'd up.
Anyway, as I feared, the amp was hopeless and I had to borrow someone else's.
My question is: why does it matter what power your amp is if it's going to be mic'd up?
In my ignorant head, it doesn't make sense. Because you can mic up a harmonica to the volume you want, can't you? Why did my amp not work? Is there something obvious I'm missing?
Really appreciate your advice, as I've got another gig coming up and wondering if I just need to buy a new amp.
