this is such a reoccuring question in here i have to post.

i found the most impactful section was the one of speakers where they show how much a few DB of sensitivity can have a major impact on overall volume.

Great guide. I really get annoyed with the "will my 30-watt combo be loud enough to play over a drum kit" crack.

craig's is better

and the last one they (PGS) did about power tubes was a joke. it's like it was suggesting that power tubes were the only thing affecting the tone in an amp.

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.

What a disappointing article. It starts off with some decent information, and addresses speaker sensitivity properly, and then the conclusion just reverts to the usual dogma of recommending the usual wattage ranges for the usual applications with barely any useful insight or actual advice. Not a single mention of mic'ing, barely any discussion on headroom, undermines its previous points about the importance of speaker sensitivity, and then to add insult to injury it ends with a hashtag for no discernible reason other than that's what the cool kids are doing these days.

Not impressed.

This. It has some decent info in there, but the end is just stupid and there is too little actual advice.

ok.... well i got some good points out of it.

the speaker thing definitely hit home since most people in here negate the effects of speakers entirely.

Big let down. Craig's slays it.

See, it's important that people clarify when they say "metal", because I pretty much always assume they are a Cannibal Corpse fanboi.
