We played one of favourite venues last night - small, extremely cramped, very hot and sweaty - and we LOVE it! They have the BEST crowd who are out for a good time and really enjoy the music. They just go nuts all night, which is great
Anyhoo........ I have to virtually stand on top of my amp, space is so tight, so the LP Special with P90s is not not an option. I led the charge with my PRS S2 Mira - what a glorious instrument this is, so vibrant and alive, but that's a different thread. Using 'buckers, I changed up the Therapy settings, and boy did she ROCK last night!
The core of my sound was guitar straight to amp; BB for more dirt; EP for solo boost and clean boost (the rest of the pedal board was for specific effects in specific songs).
MV - 11 B - 11 M - 3 T - 1 V - noon
through my z 1x12 Eminence Governor (I tell you, that speaker has made a HUGE difference to my tone)
Yes, it was a small pub (150 people max) and yes those were my volume settings and yes we were LOUD! but the landlord LOVED it and so did the audience
Working the GV all night, just added a beautiful layer of control and subtlety to the tone
Flying high as a kite today....... I'm still there playing my heart out!!

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.

roscoenyc: Whenever I see the phrase "clean pedal platform" I'm filled with sadness about the real tube amp joy that could have been.
