I must admit I have not read all 259 replies to this topic but, you would be amazed at the sounds I can get out of a Mustang I and a valve jr. through my Mesa 2x12 with Force 12's and a couple of pedals. I don't even power up the 60 Supersonic head unless I'm at a gig

Just wanted to post this here:


Played an open mic today doing lead guitar over a friend's acoustic, had my JCA running with volume at 1 with some delay in the loop, mic'd up. Some guy complimented me and said I had the best lead tone he had ever heard. No joke.

Next person who says it's impossible to get a good sound out of any 100w tube amp at a low volume I am going to personally track down and slap them upside their head.

Edison was a bastard, he tried to conglomerate cinema right from the beginning. He actually hired goons to destroy equipment and assault early filmmakers during their filming endeavors. Can't deny his intelligence of course.

Thank you

Thank you

Thank you

The amount of misinformation about low volume and tone is enormous.

This is a great respository of information on this topic. Everyone should read.

I really enjoyed reading this. I run a Hiwatt 100w DR103 at all times, and people say that's just about the loudest 100watter amp in the world.

It can be if you need it to be but....

Thing is, it's totally clean, so I can get great tones out of it due to the headroom, even at 3 and 4 on the volume controls.

My experience in recent times has been one of being told by the sound engineer to turn away down. So in small/medium sized venues were you are being miced up through a PA it seems to be a waste of time and money having a high powered amp. Although, we are guitar players so what makes sense is not always what guides us!
