Hey guys. It's been quite a while. Gettin back into it after being asked to join a band (hard rock/metal) and so here I am. Anyhow I got myself an LH1000 and a HyDrive 410 rig in the hopes that it would be nice and loud, tight, punchy and bright. It is all those things... except the loud. Not that it's quiet but everything I've seen aobut them is that the volume REALLY starts cranking after 5 or 6. For my rig, it seems that it just starts distorting after that point without getting really any louder. Right now during our practices, the guitardist is playing through a carvin 4x12 stack and still feels the need to mic up to the singers PA , as well as our drummer being really heavy handed. I have the eq knobs set at about 4-10-7 to lessen the mid scoop so I can get some cut through, but it seems like I'm not cutting through a whole lot of anything. This is with the cab horn on full and the bright switch off. They and I can't hear when i'm playing notes all up to the 7th fret on the higher strings. It's weird. Granted, yeah I need to talk to the g-ist about using just his amp for practices but I'm a bit concerned about my rig seemingly running out of steam at ~5-6 on the volume knob. Am I nuts or do I need to get a second 410?
