I haven't played live or even with a band for about 8 years. I started a family bought a house, blah blah.:blah: But I have been playing all along, in a rrom at home. Well an old friend and I decided to get serious about this DOOM Metal project we started a while ago.. even though I play Neil Young/White Stripes/ACDC type stuff I still have a soft spot for the old heavy {censored}.

 

Sorry for the rambling.. my point is... what I thought was ungodly loud at home aint {censored} in a big room with other musicians. today we get together for a go at it, I bring a 2 amp set up.. BlackHeart Little Giant thru 2 1x12's and and Epi Valve Jr thru a Vox 4x12. No way near loud enough and when I dime the amps it just sounds like loose farts. I mean I am running a $250 Fuzz God here, wtf. This {censored} sounds {censored}ing incredible at home. I realize it is the heads, 5 watt heads can not cut it in a band no matter how you slice it. I am not sure the point to this post.. I just thought I would go in there blow em away... but I walked out with my head down in shame pretty much. Thats what I get for being stuck in a bedroom for 8 years.

 

I dunno.:cry: I guess I am off to start amp head shopping.

*The above is sig-worthy*

No way those amps were going cut it.
What were you thinking?
An EL84-based, 5 watt amp for doom metal? :D
Blow 'em away, eh? Shameful indeed! :poke:

:whisper: You want to buy my mint Peavey 6505+ (with the tags still on it) to play that metal stuff.
