Today i had band practice for the first time with my new amp and it got me thinking, do i have my pretty loud.

It's a DSL100 with a 1960a cab and i have the volume on 4.

Post your amp, it's wattage, and how loud you have it when you practice with your band, and if you don't play with a band, how loud do you have it at home?

i just got the boss mt-2 metal zone pedal today. i got the adapter for it but how do i know if its charging?

When I practice at home by myself I'm either play through my TonePort into my laptop or my amp on about 1

When I jam with friends I usually turn it up to about 4 or so (85W and 100W) even though we don't have a drummer, we just like to be loud.

I usually have it on 3 which is good.
I suppose it depends on the size of the room and WHO needs to hear you the most.

I only have a little 15W Kramer amp (cheapest one I could find, and I'm actually quite happy with how it sounds). When I'm not playing with headphones on, my amp is usually at 3-5 and my distortion never goes past 3. It's not that I'm considerate of my family and neighbors, it just starts to sound like ass if it's up too high. I want my distortion to stay clean, if that makes sense.
#10
100 watt vk on volume 2-3 most of the time in my computer room.

then when everyone leaves my house usually 5, by then my ears are hurting and almost making me cry lol.
#11
I've got a 50 watt bassman and how loud I set it depends on how much distortion I want. It clean is around 4, slightly overdriven is 6 and distorted is at around 8.


Edit, Oh yeah, my cab... I actually use 2 cabs. 1 is a 1960's vox foundation cab with the original 18" goodmans alnico speaker. The other has a jensen p12r, celestion G12H, and eminence legend (don't remember the exact model).

With my 40 watt Fender Hot Rod gain about 3, clean about 4 with bright switch on.

DSL401 clean, with gain on it about 4. Gain volume about 6 and master volume about. Can't wait to gig with it, a really ballsy amp.
#17
When my family are out I have my Laney on 3. When they're in I just bung my pod in the effects loop and play quietly.

That a pocket pod? I love mine! I don't use it through the amp, I just use headphones, seems easier, and I have decent ones.

Yeah, it's the pocket pod. I use headphones when I'm just noodling around but most of the time these days I'm playing along to songs, and it's easier to do that with it through the amp. Also means I get to use all my pedals, which is more fun.

If by "clean" you mean "get a finger right up in there and do a good bit of spelunking" then i guess "at any given opportunity" is my answer.

I have my 15W Laney VC-15 at 3/4 on the clean channel and 4/5 (numbers on amp, not as on a clock face) on the distortion channel, and its loud enough to be heard over drums. I've turned my amp up to full a few times and its just far, far too loud. How do you people stand such loud practicing??

Good point. I don't have any. Thing is, I've also got neighbours who'd get really pissed off if we practiced any louder, which limits it a bit as well.

With earplugs it's fun to jam with a 100 watts with the master at 7 or 8.

My Marshall MG stack gets pretty loud actually. I had it at about half volume in my room, and it plays over drums. I also played in my school auditorium with around 300 people there. It was loud enough to record at half volume. I'm glad though, because after you get it past that, it sounds awful. At home I play at around 10 o' clock, but when everyone's out I sometimes push it past half volume. I have to dime my clean channel for it to get loud though.

I got a hybrid, 100 watt Fender amp...it usually is on 3 or 4 for practice. It is hilarious, though...my other guitarist has a Behringer GMX212 and a Digitech RP150 and he has to dime both the master volume and channel volume on his Behringer, and crank his pedal to be equal to me...strange though, I don't see why.

50 watts tube at around 1 or 2 at home.

It is easily heard through my whole school gym with 300 people in there at about half volume, and completely drowns out the school's PA and an un-mic'd drummer when all the way up.

Just loud enuf to get over my drummer. Were in a soundproofed studio so all the sound is contained :P ..... but to get an idea my f100 (at its 60 watt setting) is usually going at about 3/4.
