played in 2 mid level venues over the last 2 days that are fairly typical of the types of places that bands at my level play. I.e normal type of onstage volume and balance and mic’d up for FOH.
ive downsized a little from a jcm800 2203
to a 2204.
its still too powerful. Last night I had it on 2 and it was barely coming alive. The night before I had it on 3 and it was just about starting to sound decent .
I’m getting sick of it . Im lugging big gear about that I’m not getting the best out of . I love jcm800’s but I’m thinking (again) that they’re just too powerful.
I’m seriously thinking of selling all the big stuff and getting something smaller , more portable , that I can get a decent sound out of at the volumes I need to play at .
It’d be something with a British style over drive and preferably some kind of solo boost.
i play mostly punk / metal crossover type stuff .
Ive even been thinking of just getting a 1x12 combo or something.
Anyone done this ?? Anyone feel my pain ??
Im seriously thinking of selling the lot and getting something else.
