I'm ordering a Power Station 2 very soon ! ... as I find someone with one in stock
Home player here. I have recently gone digital(Helix/Powercab) at home. Just cant hear a difference at low volumes so why burn up tubes?
I am not sure about bedroom.
Whenever I play it seem like low club or higher.
Loud, I wanna hear it loud.
I want to hear it as if I was in a stadium...
Mitch, just use the proper ear protection if you have to do so.
Have fun, plenty of fun.
I like the edge of not wearing protection. I also consider that stadium venue volume.
Will do brother, I have only got wonky ears a couple of times !!
I know exactly what you mean.
A loud drummer volume is my max, my use of a delay at that point is , the big stadium sound .
Bedroom-twice a day
Rehearsal 3 times a month
Gig- once every couple of months if lucky.
0 since December...
Bedroom levels are a crack of master, pre on 7, 3/4 overdrive pedal.
Rehearsal/Gig volume depends on PA/room size.... mostly
Got to be able to rock the given space
I do not even like wearing ear protecting when using guns. I like to hear everything. You cannot hear your enemy well enough with shit in your ears.
I can hear more than I should when I want to and am at attention.
Anyway my room levels when playing average at least 105dB. (I use a dB meter)
Man You're Awesome!! ??? I Said You're AWESOME!!!! AWESOME!!! ??? No!! I didn't call you an asshole I said you're Awesome!!!!
I had a producer friend back home who would ask me. "Why do you set you're amp so loud. The mic doesn't care what the volume is." And my reply. "Well maybe the mic don't but the amp does." He would also put his amp in isolation, and sit in front of his monitors for reference. Nothing like standing 8 to 10 feet in front of a cranked Marshall. Both in feel and response. I guess I'm just from the old school. You do what you do you're way and Ill do mine.
Amen. I’ve seen similar on another forum recently with some primadonna getting bent out of shape because people wanted to talk about the ‘wrong’ model guitar (in the ‘all other guitars’ sub forum). If the forum owner wants to create an ‘exclusive experience for professionals only’ then that’s fine and they can punt a load of members. Otherwise there’s a bunch of people need to either get used to rubbing shoulders with people with less experience who occasionally ask dumb questions or maybe set up a different forum if it bothers them that badly. Hell, I get snarky at times about the US-centric focus here (obviously I know it’s a US forum before someone points that out) and silly names people insist on calling amps but it doesn’t kill me.
Too many people getting punchy over Covid, I reckon.
Beware of the Les Paul forum, easy to create world of butthurt without even knowing what the hell happened.
Dude, if you're concerned about hearing enemies you might want to stop pissing people off. Especially if we're still talking about the bedroom.
2 bands, but the whole pandemic has put me back into the bedroom until we can gig again
Just curious, are you a full time gigging musician?
more bedroom tone tracking today..almost done with next song.
Bedroom player here as well, and I use the word 'player' in its most loose sense. Yeah, I'm still a crappy player.
Even so, my dream one day is not to gig (though that would be nice) but to play and sing awesomely for family and friends, and perhaps put up a YouTube video or two that I can live with and share with you great MFers. And should none of these ever happen, of one thing I am certain: I'm having a wonderful time. The best time of day is when I hack away at my guitar and croon to my heart's content.
That is what matters most
