Hey guys,

So i got this question, and I somehow fear I already know the answer, but I'm still gonna ask it. So, I play in 2 bands, one just rock n roll band and another is a big band. When I'm playing gigs, even though my amp is fully aimed at me, i still need to get the volume open to about 50%. This is pretty okay for the distortion channel, it sounds a bit fuzzy but okay. Though when I'm playing clean, when I strum it sounds rather.. distorted, like I have a clean boost on it, you know what I mean ? Not a really nice smooth clean. Could it be my amp can't handle the volume it has to be running at?

Thanks

yeah, probably. from what i can remember from my avt100 (i've since sold it, so i can't check), it stayed pretty clean most of the way up, but did break up when really pushed.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Well, I play with my guitar volume a lot, really. But if I turn it down too much at gigs, people in the crowd can hear it but I can't. Also, about the pick thing.. I use.. pff, medium ones, like a bit less than 1mm. And for the clean/master, I dont have that ^^.

hmm well, how hard do you pick with the sub 1mm ones? for picked cleans i use 0.5mm and for strumming i use 0.38mm
