At least 50 watts will always be within pawing distance in my future
These are my workhorses.
These are my warhorses
(...and two of these are 30 watters)
Most concerts.. there are no more amps to be seen on stage.. unless the artist is endorsed by Brand X or such...
IDK, live shows maybe for convenience. But I still think a 1959 or 87 and 60a or 60b are really hard to beat. They will always be my favorite rigs, great tone clean or dirt and plenty of air.
I hear the same arguments about Band X switched to modelers...it has to be the best...
Well, most big time bands don't carry their rigs on tour anymore.
They rent whatever is closest and available.
They bring their guitars and some effects...but not their big toys.
Bands like Metallica or Megadeth that live, yes use a rack full of Fractal/Kemper, have gotten to the point where they don't care about their tone on stage like they did when they were younger.
Partially because they are near deaf.
And because they know the audience doesn't give a shit.
If anyone believes that Hetfield or Hammet in Metallica or Mustaine in Megadeth could program a Kemper or Fractal...wow...are you ever misguided.
While great guitarists and spawned Thrash Metal in the US...they ain't exactly bright nor would they have the time or patience to sit and navigate that stuff.
Can their road crew? Sure.
That's who sold it to them and who really uses it.
At home, in rehearsal...they are plug and play guys right into the half stacks.
@OP: if by "big amps" you mean 100 watts or more, then I say in some circles "big amps" are a thing of the past (or at least certainly being handed their hat).
Being quotes 400 pounds for a JVM205C sounds too low ball. Assuming your 205C is in great working condition, has all new power tubes and all new preamp tubes (or at least power tubes and preamp tubes with very low hours of use), comes with original foot switch, then 400 pounds is a bullsh*t number that at which I wouldn't sell. But, if you 205C is very banged up, modified, has power amp tubes and preamp tubes with lots of hours, and is missing the footswitch, then yeah 400 pounds might be about right.
As far as will JVM be as "memorable" as plexi, JCM800 2203, etc., imo the answer is some JVM models yes, some JVM models no. I think the 410H has been in production for more than 10 years now, so that gives it credibility. When Marshall was choosing sounds to model on it's then new JMD:1 series, they chose three modes from JVM410H: clean/green, Crunch/red, OD1/orange. Throw in the awards, and money brought in by the 410H and credibility goes up. That's not to say people will instantly fall in love with JVM, but I think there's more at issue there than just JVM.
Brad Paisley one of the best guitar players ever...1 and 2X12s max...(period)
Really, to some Players they might think you “can’t play”...gonna sell your “stuff”...just saying!
Yes Brad likes his 2x12's and he always has at least 4 amplifiers on stage or more with many mic'd. So 4 equals 2 4x12's with 4 amplifiers. I have seen Brad at least 6 times and he used to have more on stage years back.
Always nice to have a nice little grab-n-go combo for those impromptu weekend jams.
Thats for different tones and/or back up Dude his amp is mic’d. Also for stage effects. Ive met him, talked with him and seen 13 shows...up close, hes one of my favorites.
I thought about selling stuff. But I do not want to do that, really.
Stack it up , bring wood and oil, place me atop and light it up, like the heathen kings of old.
Oh, so you got the scoop.
You Tainted Bastard you.
My 5, 10 and 30 watters never made me smile more than my 100 watt through a 412 has. Even if I could only play it at 1-3.
The guy I got a slant A cab for $100 this weekend... had more money in his arms ink than guitars. Filed that in the back of my mind as: isnt "currently playing" due to he cant.
Looks like you've got all bases covered.
God Bless ...
I did the same a month or so ago.
A rack is merely an enclosure spec, but EVERY major commercial studio of note, used rack gear for a REASON, as did some of the most tracked, and notable studio, and touring guitarists ever.
That said, it was one of those if you can afford it-- you knew it was a luxury indulgence you were indulging in-- kinda thing, but the idea that those guy's rigs played themselves was just what made me think of your comment as silly.
