Well I have a Randall rg75 75watt SS amp ( i don't know if it's one of the newer "hybrid" amps but that's not the issue) and I used to always play it loud with master volume at 4. Ever since I got the Boss ME50 Multieffects pedal and I have the volume controls on the pedal all set at 12 oclock, my amp is ridiculously loud just at master volume at 2.
1. So is the pedal, in a way, making my amp a hell of a lot louder?
2. And if this is the case, this then makes my amp better/louder for gigs that don't mic amirite?
