Alright, my band just got a third guitarist. Which is awesome, but at the same time it's a bit troubling; My Blues Jr. went over most of it before fine, but the new guitarist is using his father's gear as his guitar got stolen and his amp is a small practice amp, and until he gets new gear, sed gear of his is an old 1970's strat and a Kustom 100W with a 412. As you can likely imagine, even though the Kustom is SS, the Blues Jr. has trouble being heard at volumes I feel safe running it at in the current weather. As such I'm looking to get a cab for easier volume. Long question short; could a Blues Jr.(15-watt Class-AB US-voiced low-gain tube amp) drive a 412?

if it has the right outputs, yes.
Make sure to match up the ohm ratings of the amp and cab too.

I'm not positive, but I think if you remove that back bit in front of the tubes, it does. One moment, getting a screwdriver to check...

Probably but honestly this could be fixed by 1) an eq pedal to boost your mids and cut through the mix and 2) kick out 3rd guitarist. Its unnecessary.

It really won't make a huge difference in volume

And yeah, it's kind of overkill to go for a 4x12.
I would try boosting your mids as recommended too.

well, it's just that a 4x12 is more than the whole amp.

i had 2x12 on that amp, still couldnt cut thru the mix the way i wanted to.

Yeah man, Crank the midrange.
It does wonders.
My friend has a 150W randall and I had a 120W at the time and all i had to do was boots the mids and I drowned him out.

Okay, suppose I'll boost the mids then. Advice is much appreciated as usual.

ok, here's the deal.. adding more speakers does NOT make you louder.. so a 4 speaker cab is just as loud as a 1 speaker cab. also, you said you don't feel safe running your Blues Jr. at high volumes. Nothing bad happens to tube amps cranked, in fact, there is power tube overdrive then which is the REASON people get tube amps. Tube amps sound their best at max volume. also, have your third (unnessesary) giutarist turn down then...

well it kind of does make you sound louder.

so does lifting that amp off the ground. put it on a chair or something.

basically comes down to.....


4 12 is kinda pointless, it will only spread the noise better

boost your mids, u'll cut through the mix

a third guitarist is pretty pointless and will only make thinks sound more of a mess unless your band is extremely tight
#13
I find third guitarists very useful, personally. Turn up your mids and have the other guitarist turn down.

Turn your amp up and boost your mids! It's a tube amp! It will sound GOOD if you turn the volume up!!! But why do you have a third guitarist?
