Now not as it sounds. Don't you find that your amp has to be a certain level before it really sounds alive. My ashdown needs to be at leat on 1/4 volume to sound decent. While I have a small practice amp that needs to be on about half volume before it sounds like it has any sort of tone. Now there is a massive difference in volume between the two amps so I know its not my ears. So just kinda wondering if you guys experience the same problems or do you have an amp that sounds as good on level 1 as it does on level 10 (Here come the spinal tap jokes) Cheers.
