  • Why Do You Need More Than 15 Watts?

    I've been playing live in that way for quite a long time. Playing outside is different, but I've never had a problem keeping up with my 15 watters.

    I know everyone will point to headroom. I get the headroom I need. It doesn't have to be killer loud. I just like pushing the tubes. That's the tone I go for. You can't do that in most clubs with a 100W

    Congrats, but not everyone goes for that.

            Because when I wasn't mic'd my Orange AD15 wasn't loud enough. I played in 2 bands with it, same story.

            Good enough reason?

                      this again? hrm.

                      welp.. it's nice if you rock the smaller venues. it's great if you have PA's. sucks if you have a loud drummer and no PA. and yep.. thats pretty common- no PA. at least in my world.

                            If you're playing an outside solo gig in front of several hundred people with no PA, then you might need more than 15 watts.

                            Especially if you play clean.

                            The low notes need lots of wattage.

                              Because people don't get the visceral release of throwing up devil horns and screaming "ROCK N ROCK LIKE A MUTHER****************ER!" when lightly fondled by a 15 watt combo.
