The band I've been playing with lately is LOUD!. Like really loud, in a very small room. Anyway, I've been setting the gain on my LMII at noon, per usual, but I've bumped the master to around 11 o' clock, which is quite a bit higher than I've needed to in the past. Is there anyone else who has been pushing theirs this hard for great lengths of time? it definitely gets a bit warm, but I haven't had any problems yet. I'm just hoping doing this constantly won't have any adverse effects.
