Seems there's absolutely NO WAY I could play my tube amp cranked up.


Even at attenuated volume I still get complaints.


Using an AC4TV here.


But my dumbshit neighbors have no problems kicking their kids out in the porch at midnight and letting the whole neighbourhood hear the kid wail and they have no problems turning on their vintage record player out loud and some other karaoke shit.

So what should I do ? Ignore them and crank out the 4 watt full volume?

Play it so loud you can't hear them complain. Dur.

Or play in the other part of the house. That seems sensible.

I play a 60 watt Tube head, distorted to the max and I live in an apartment, you just don't know how to properly control volumes.

I agree with everyone else, but i would only change one thing:

instead of playing IN your house, get an extension cord and play outside with your amp pointed at their house. Preferrably a window.

You'll see a moving truck park in their driveway soon enough.

Crank that son of a bitch... to the max!


...alternatively use headphones.
#13
let them complain all they want, here in pennsylvania you can be pretty much as loud as you want between like 8 or 9 am and 10 or 11 pm, so i'd imagine it'd be similar where you are

It's a 4 watt tube amp combo with built in attenuator.


Yes it gets loud but to my ears it's just right. I am probably going deaf or something.

Quote by frankv
I was thinking 'well duh! Tube amps are fucking loud!' until I read "4 watt."

I say crank out that thing FULL VOLUME!



That's still gonna be pretty loud.

Once I cranked my 100watt out on my back porch. (I live in a regional area, I have neighbours semi close by, but not like 10 meters away)


Eventually my neighbour came down saying people like 2km were complaining.
>.>

But yeah, full ****ing volume.

wow never thought a tube amp will be that loud
doesn't it have an input for headphones?
Huh? Tube amps generally sound louder than solid state amps.

Maybe it isn't the tone or the volume of your amp they're complaining about.
Does your playing suck?

if the complaints are just from these people and not the po-lice just crank it as loud as possible at some random time. then when they bitch you make sure to bring up the kid and the record player. see how well that goes
#35
I read that as "My neighbors ate my amp".
On topic: Normally you'd be a tool to disregard how their complaints and play anyway, but they're being hypocrites and most likely unreasonable about your amp. I say crank it. If they call the cops, call the cops on them.

It´s not illegal if you don´t do it to piss off your neighbours on purpose.

A cranked 4 watt tube amp is silent enough for work hours.
