Lee Flier Posted September 17, 2003 Share Posted September 17, 2003 Hey all, We all know the age-old problem of guitarists who play with tube amps: they're highly directional, which means some of your audience (in a small club) is getting blasted out while others (perhaps including you) can't hear it properly. The obvious solution would be to mic it and have most of the sound come from the PA, but at the normal volume where you have to crank up a tube amp to get your tone, the sound man is usually loathe to turn up your mic. So what do you do? Do you: 1) Use a smaller tube amp (and if so, which one, and does it really sound as good as your favorite amp?) 2) Use a power soak of some sort? (again, if so, which one, and doesn't it drastically affect the tone?) 3) Build an enclosure around your amp (how would you keep it from overheating?) Or something else entirely?
