how do you guys make all parts in your bands heard?
also when playing a rhythm part then going into a little bit of lead or sometimes a solo how to you make the solo cut through the mix but not overpower everything else? or when going from solo to rhythm without being to loud?

basically how to you get every piece in a band to sound separate and full?

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

volume knob.

leave it set to a low setting for normal riffing, but turn it up when you play lead.

Heres how I mix:

Vocals: Loud but not overbearing. Since Vocals are the main thing to be heard, you want them out there but not "OMFG! ALL I HEAR ARE THE WORDS!"

Rhythm Guitar: Not as loud as the vocals but a little louder than the snare. The snare and the guitars are about in the same frequency range so they are always fighting each other.

Lead Guitar: It depends. If someones singing, somewhere where vocals can be clearly heard but not overpowering it. Also, being able to hear it over the rhythm guitar.

Bass Guitar: Somewhere in the range of the bass drum. These 2 items should meld together nicely.

Drums: Snare to Guitar, Bass Drum to Bass Guitar. Cymbals to taste.
