So, tonight I had a little gig filling in for my uncle's band. I didn't know what I wanted to use, so I grabbed two heads, two cabs and my Deville and took it all...
Hahaha.
The though occurred to me when I ran all three amps at once: "Maybe this is a little too much for one gig..." But then I told myself, it's never too much! Ha.
In the end, I just used my Deville because, I don't know... There's something special about this one particular Deville... A year ago I bought a hand-wired AC-30 from Guitar Center and took it back because it just didn't sound as good as the Deville did to me...
Anyways, I just figured I'd get everyone's opinions on what's "too much" and see if anyone ever had any stories like this.

Awesome!

And the point is? Flaunting your uncles gear to be cool? If you aren't doing the above, two heads ran into one cab in srereo is the most i bring out.

It's only too much when you bring two huge stacks and a combo and just use the combo...

So you brought all the amps out and only used one?

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

Well, if it were my uncle's gear, then it'd been some bass gear, too; which, for a guitarist, can be too much.
The idea did come to me to run a cab and amp on either side of the stage to even things out and put some sound behind my uncle so he could hear me and not what was coming through the monitor. I did also think about running stereo into one cab, but I, personally, thought that was too much. Like I said; in the end, the Deville is what was taken out.
The point was not to try to be cool, but too see opinions on "too much." I've played in places before where bands would run between two guitarists and a bassists, 6 full stacks.
I apologize if the included picture seems like flaunting. I posted it because I, for whatever reason, think it's funny.
Awesome!

I won't fault you for the "never too much" attitude (who wouldn't love more gear?).
Personally, I loathe setting up and breaking down, so I wouldn't want to bring 3 amps, but I'm sure it would sound amazing.

There's no such thing as too much, which is why I sometimes go as far as 10 o'clock on the volume dial on the HT-1.

This one time when my old band played a show. this guitarist in another band group a full stack, a shit load of rack effects, and this huge ass pedalboard. Note we were playing in a college music bar in a rough part of town. His tone sounded really bad on top of it.

They also got some of the time of their set cut because he took too long to set up
