Realistic and humbling.......for some

Alright sinners, here's the scenario: Small club, one club manager who wants an acceptable volume for his biz, one amp, one guitar.......what will you use? I imagine there's gonna be some WAY different responses. Now I'm talking a good acceptable tone at a decent stage volume....no outboards/front ends....just the basics.

Hey strat

 

Easy man... when I'm needing a basic and versatile simple guitar /amp setup here's what I use

gibson les paul 1959 standard and a vintage vox ac30

 

Love it to death!! Totally versatile sounds mint.

Sounds kicking...I've been thinking of trying out the Laney stuff, specifically the AC30 clone they have......it's about half the price of the VOX unit....hope it's not half the tone as well. My small club setup is very modest, but there's no modesty sonically. I use a strat and a Blues Jr or a Pro Jr. Of course with the genre we play, it suits it to a tee.

Small club? Only use one wall of 12 Marshall stacks. If he complains turn 'em down to 9.

 

hehehe...

 

Actually, can't go wrong with some sort of combo. That's what's cool about 'em. You can fill a small place easily, and mic 'em for larger places.

Well, I like a lot of effects and changes of sound so I would probably get one of those modeling amps with on board effects. Doesn't sound exactly like the real thing, but close enough. Who knows? Maybe a model of a mesa turned up to ten sounds better than the real thing turned up to three. I'd probably also use a humbucker equipped guitar with coil splitters so I could imitate single coils. Again, not the real thing, but close enough.

 

Save the good gear for the club owners who don't care how loud you are.

If we're getting "pure" here, a reissue Deluxe, or if they have a mic a Blues Junior would be fine, I don't care.

 

If I had my druthers and didn't care about the spirit of the post, I'll take a 3 channel Rectifier combo or a Nomad.

 

Guitar - whatever, as long as it has decent action, stays in tune and isn't a Les Paul.

Druthers - Suhr standard, Anderson, or some such... Or the *right* 50's Strat.

Wow, weird...

 

I wish Fender would make the Blues jr. into a pedal. You can do more touch sensitive stuff with those amps than anything else....

Modeling amps. Yeah! I would use my Flextone II and strat!!!

You can't go wrong with that setting. You have cool sounding amps (I really don't care if they sound like real thing or not because they sound cool to me!!!) plus cool FX and cool guitar...

If it sounds god, just play the darn thing

It depends on what type of music you are playing. I would bring my mesa/boogie dual rectifier turn it 3. I would just throw an sm-57 at one of the speakers and let the sound man worry about it. I play a ibanez 570 so that is what i would recomend and my band plays punk and jazz.

 

Ouch! What a waste of a mesa/boogie amp! (The ibanez 570) Get thee a suitable guitar for that ssssswwweeet amp.

 

Or, go the other route.

 

Scary as it is to admit, I played the Behringer combo today, with a Tex-Mex Tele, and it was fantastic. It doesn't stand up to a fine tube amp properly tweaked, but I was able to get some wonderful tones from the neck pickup in particular.

 

One thing the modeling amps and boxes seem to be half assed on is an SRV tone. This amp nailed it, although with very little low end. (The low knob was cranked.) I was playing very quietly, though. When I turned it up for a moment, the bottom was respectable. Still had the knob cranked. Very responsive to input changes too. Oh, yeah... You have $300 + tax? That's all she wrote, at the local Mars store, with a 24 bit, dual engine f/x processor built in. Sweet amp for precisely what you mapped out.

I had an Orange head back in the day. Cool grind, but it'd be way too loud for the scene I play now. I'm into small tube amps these days, the ones you can get crankin at a semi-cool stage volume.
