Over the years my observation is that in your basement or home, especially at lower to mid level volumes, every amp has its own character and tone and so do cabs. My brother and I have a variety of amps and cabs in our basement where we also have a little recording set up and you can tell when the Marshall is being played vs Fender vs Mesa etc. But when I go to bars and clubs I find it harder to tell the difference. There is a local band in my area and the guitar player plays through an older Line6 Flextone and some beat up cab (I think it may be a Peavey?) and it sounds great in fact, its one of the best guitar tones Ive heard on a bar. What do you guys think - does raw volume in a bar (I dont mean super loud just normal bar amp volume), club or even arena take away from the unique "tone" of an amp?
No announcement yet.
Can you hear the difference in amps in a loud bar or club?
