I know there's no effective rule for this, but I use a combo with a 4x12 extension, but I don't like the sound of the sound when the combo is on top of the 4x12. I a live situation, is it okay to have them side by side or is it not "courteous"?

where the hell are you playing a gig? 17th century france?

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.

thats the thing. I've never played a real gig before, so I don't entirely know how they go so I asked here.

Haha, of course you can. It may look 'cooler' but as long as the speaker cable can reach from the combo to the cab, it'll work. Ignore the trolls, even though it is quite funny

Haha this cracked me up
It doesn't matter one jot where you put your head/combo etc. As the poster above pointed out, normally you will only have one speaker mic-ed anyway at a gig so it's a moot point. I actually never put my head on top of my cab- I place it just off to the right of me at the side of the stage and run a long speaker lead up to the cab; sometimes I'll even have it just to the right of my mic stand. I prefer being able to twist a dial quickly if I need to, plus it subjects the tubes and solder joints to FAR less vibrations than if the head was placed atop a cab.

EDIT: See pic - my head is the white box on the floor to the left, and my cab is mic-ed up in the background.

haha me neither

but i mean i'm guessing they're not going to care. unless the stage is tiny or something.

as has been said, just need to make sure your speaker lead will stretch.

Put the cab on top of the combo. 4x12 on top of 1x12 works best.

the only thing 'un-courteous' about it is the amount of stage room you take up, which isn't a big deal if you aren't a huge band.

personally, i'd recommend placing the combo on one side of the stage and the 4x12 on the other side of the stage with the cabinet's projection path intersecting somewhere in the middle of the audience. this will make sure you sound balanced on stage and everyone in the audience can hear you. simple pic:



i am assuming you will be using stage volume at the venue and not miking everything, but that is just my 2 cents.

we're a four piece, but I'm not the only guitarist and the bassists amp isn't super big and the drummer's kit isn't enourmous either, so I guess it'd work. but we won't be miking everything, but I just never liked the sound when it's on the top. thanks!
