A recent session

Post by slidingtom » Thu May 30, 2019 11:02 am

No entries in this sub-forum yet so I thought I'd post two clips from a recent jazz/blues session at the local club here in town.
Never played with any of these guys before, there wasn't any rehearsal, just preparation by each individual musicianer.

Very nice Tommo - Glad you turned you amp up on the first video - done like a true guitarist!

Thanks Melvin!

Like I mentioned: there was no soundcheck so I didn't have an idea how the controls on the amp were set. Plus: I'd rather turn up my amp and adjust the volume as needed on my guitar.

I'll agree with that sentiment Tom, but as a natural course, we always keep turning up our amps.
Once everyone has left (cause it's too noisy to talk) we might think about turning them down.

I try to adjust my guitar on the fly, but never find the sweet spot -Alas

It really does seem to be constant battle - part of the reason I play through a 20 (read 18) watt amp.
Shawn always complains he can't hear me - so I know it's not me that is TOO LOUD!

Regarding wattage: I'm not using much these days: either my DRRI @ 22 watts or my Bassman RI which I have tamed to 15 watts with a set of TAD tonebones that accept EL 84s in cathode bias - still plenty loud due to the 4 10 inch speakers....

Love small amps. a 15 is probably more than enough - it's hard to get to the sweet spot even at 20.
I miss having 10inch, speakers that is . . . had a Peavy with 2 10's - 35 watts just killed it tone wise, but too loud - so off it went.
