Yeah, I get that sometimes, I keep thinking it's just me, but, I dunno, I suppose climate can affect things.
Wait.

There are no germanium transistors in any stock Big Muffs.

It can just be in your head. I have that sometimes and it is due to my mood and whatnot.

Yeah this basically, I find often if i'm frustrated about something i hate how my guitar sounds and don't want to play.

although, i swear my Laney VC30 has a brighter tone when it is in a colder environment.. I don't know.

i have the same problem. I have a sneaking suspicion it may be other electrical appliances causing interference or dirty power... I need me a power conditioner... cept i don't have an effects loop and i don't see the point in putting together a rack mount when i cant have digital effects in it -.-

Normally this happens when I have a cold. My ears don't hear mids properly when I'm sick, so I end up having this huge spike in how I hear the midrange, and even if I scoop them all the way out (a sound I abhor, btw), they just won't go away.

Sometimes I also just can't get my wah to sound how I want it to, which sort of pisses me off, but meh, I'll live. I only use it maybe once or twice in a 7 song set, so even though I love the sound of a wah, I don't abuse it and make it like some stage gimmick that I NEED for a show, so if I can't get it to sound right, I'll just turn it off and forget about it.

I've heard about this before.

In my opinion, if you don't sound good, there really is only one thing you can do about it... turn your volume up to 11.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.

I think it is more more prevalent in tube amps, as the tubes change sometime. There is more variables when your running a spark of plasma through a vacuum.

That being said, I have bad tone days now and then. Just turn it up louder, the first frequency to sound obnoxiously wrong when your ears are screaming for relief is the problem.

I get this a lot.

Especially when playing loud for a long time. It seems that you ears start to I guess "weaken" (for a lack of a better word), and you start to hear less bass, mids, etc.

My tone also seems to change when I'm tired. I tend to think way more negatively and start to hate my sound even though it sounds exactly the same as it did 2 days ago when I was happy with my sound.
