Through my avatar it sounds different than it did at the store through a 5150 3 cab. Right now it sounds kinda fizzy and im not sure if its my cab or just the tubes are maybe dying, because i bought it used and the dude used it for about 8 months in practice. BUT, about a month ago i got my avatar (60 watts) and i had a valveking combo (100 watts). I was way off when i thought if i kept it on a low volume it wouldnt pump out 100 watts so i thought it was safe to play through my avatar so i did for about 20 minutes on really really low volumes so maybe i blew my speakers?

I have a video of the rocker, ill post it once it loads on youtube. It doesnt sound as fizzy in the video for some reason but you still might be able to hear it. Ive seen other videos of rockers and they sound way way way smoother so im not sure whats up with mine.

Tomorrow im gonna bring it to a friends house and he has a peavey jsx cab so ill see if it is the cab.

Sounds good to me

Maybe it is the room you are doing it in. What are your walls and floor made of?

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

the 5150 3 cab happens to be one of the most if not the most amazing cabinet on the mainstream market. you went down quite a few steps so thats probably why youre experiencing your tone woes.

Concrete walls not so good. But, if it is capeted that'll help. Go to a construction site, and go in the dumpster when they're almost done, and steal some scrap and hang it over the concrete parts. It'll help to reduce the sound of your playing so as to not annoy the outside world, and also keep your highs from bouncing all over the room and sounding poor.
