Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

okay, well when you're playing live, do you have a monitor? cause if you did, you probably wouldnt be having this problem.

and people are either just being nice so you dont feel stupid, or they just can't tell the difference between good and bad guitar tone.

Yeah, didn't make much sense to me eiher

What I will say is, if you're playing live, then you need a healthy chunk of midrange in your sound or you WILL get lost in the mix. What sounds good on it's own won't necessarily work with other instruments, likewise it's sometimes the case a tone that sounds pretty pants actually works perfectly in a certain band situation. It's like when you hear your voice recorded, you always think it sounds funny.
