Do you guys think this amp paired up with the orange 2X12 cabinet would be plenty loud enough to gig with. I am saving up for a quality amp and I play bars at least twice a month, so I am always transporting gear. Or would it be better to get the slanted 4x12 cabinet that is taller. I want the audience to hear me clearly most importantly, but I also want an awesome tone. My fear of the 2x12 cabinet is that it may sit to close to the ground. Any thoughts? I am sure the amp itself is plenty loud I guess my question is what cabinet to use.
Rotate the cab 90 degrees if you worry about it being too close to the ground. It should have plenty of volume to play bars. You will probably get miced anyways.
it will be plenty loud enough. 30 watts class A is pretty loud man, and you can always get mic'd too.
Well we don't mic or amps yet. I never thought about turning it on its side though!
Does anyone uses the amp stands that angle up..I was thinking maybe that would help broadcast sound better. When you have a bunch of people in front of you dancing it seems to drown out the back of the bar.
I've gigged many times with my Rocker 30 combo and have never got it past half way on the volume. I always just put it up on a stand or another amp to project the sound.
