I guess the 90s are truly over. I remember the '90s guys driving every soundman crazy with their cranked up amps the '80s sound men always told us turn your volume as low as you can and get your preamp gain all the way up. always thought it sounded horrible and cheesy like that. The ADA sounds great at any level.

I completely agree. I had one sound guy tell me that one time, and I laughed at him. I fed him the stereo lines from my MicrocabII and told him to pretend he knew what he was doing.
    I never did drive soundmen crazy. Like I said to Dante, I like to hear the whole band, not just me, so I don't get that loud. Besides, if you have good vocals in your band, the last thing you want to do is bury them with the instruments.

Hey Dante,

        Let me see if I have this straight. You're saying you get a bigger sound from your 1X12" combo, than you do with your 2X12 piggy-back 20 Watt tube amp? That's an open back cab if I recall correctly. Try taping a sheet of corrugated cardboard to the inside of the back panel and see what you get.

        When I'm working with the Cyber Deluxe, and I feel like the program I'm trying to tweak is losing the life in it, or getting dull as you describe, I start over with a fresh program and try to build one from the ground up at the volume I intend to use it at. That usually works for me. Building in the Cyber Deluxe is a lot easier than the Cyber Twin. I'm sure the Twin can sound just as good if I spend enough time with it. There's a much steeper learning curve with that amp as far as editing goes because there's a lot of deep menu diving involved in that amp. If I were to compare the Fenders to ADA, the Cyber Twin would be like editing in the MP-2, whereas the Cyber Deluxe is a lot more like editing in the MP-1 or MP-1 Classic.

       Using the volume knob on the guitar is something I've been doing a lot, and it should work with any good amp that way. I don't run my amps at ridiculous loud volumes anyway. I like to hear the guitar blended with the rest of the band, I guess I'm kind of weird that way. But I'm not opposed to boosting it for a solo, I like to hear that with enough presence to sit in the mix like it should. I've never had the Master on the Cyber Deluxe up past 5, that gives me just about what I need with a band to cover the lead tones with the guitar volume rolled up.
     
Just sayin'

Got  an Ada ampulator, which 12 ax 7 can I best use for it.
Also got an ADA GCS-6
and a Mooer Radar.
Maybe i'mselling my ampulator, catching dust at the moment.

...Most places here are downsizing amps to around 20-30 watts, so even my Cyber-Deluxe rig is way more powerful than what is becoming acceptable out there. Fortunately for me, I'm not afraid to turn down the Master volume and tweak the edits to sound better at lower volume levels.

That works in this town too. I saw a very successful local cover band (they have a full horn section, 3 lead singers...big BIG outfit) and the guitar player was using a 1x10 Peavey direct into the board. The amp was his monitor and pointed at him. Yes, he had other things (I think a line6 or Fractal footboard) plugged into it, but the amp was small

My lil' Peavey Classic 20mh is pretty dang awesome and I can get sounds quickly with those chicken head knobs...it's a very responsive EQ

The 'turning down the master' works with my (50w H&K) combo, kinda. I don't have the same feel in the tones as I do with the little underpowered amp all cranked up. The (overpowered) combo is choked, and feels more dull. The cranked (underpowered)  head is a snarling beast and I have to turn my volume knob down a bit on my guitar to tame it. The lil amp still keeps up with a drummer, but doesn't really blow out your ears like my combo will. But, I like the widebody combo, it's programmable, and sounds big...like my Boogie did....fills the room.

A Twin, well that's just a ridiculous amount of volume. If you turn it up past 6, birds fall out of the sky. Fender amps. Stupid loud—never a lack of headroom. I had a Tweed 2x12 Blues Deluxe that made a nice piece of furniture, but was unusable at home. That had to stay at the practice facility.
