I'm getting hacked off with being told to turn down in my band.
I have a 30w egnater rebel that can be switched down to 1w but I mostly run it at 20w. We aren't a quiet band by any stretch but I'm always being told turn down. It's usually running on 1 or 2 on the master volume. I rarely play any clean but I struggle with drive pedals as every time I step on one the volume goes through the roof, even when they are turned down (strymin sunset and spark boost, way huge fuzz)
I can't get a lower powered amp, well I suppose I could but need to find a way to balance it all up. Our other guitarist seems to just turn up plug in and play, where as all my levels are different all the bloody time, I'm sure the knobs keep getting moved about in the pedal case.
I also have to stand right on top the a.o a lot of the time which can't help being g able to hear it
What the knowledge on becoming a plug and play chappy
