    Anybody ever love a piece of gear, but realize it doesn't suite you?
    I may be drunk. But it's okay. I'm not a supporting member.
    I've got my mom's old Peavey Musician 400 series head. I love it. My mom played the **** out of it through the late 70's and 80's. I recently started using it for my band. The sound is great, but it's too much amp for anything I do. I can't even get it above 9:00 for outdoor gigs, and any venue in town wants to run a DI to FOH.
    I already have a vague idea of what to replace it with, but has anybody else had trouble moving beyond a piece of gear that has sentimental value?

    Naah man. The volume kno can go from 1 to 7 (or even 10) for a reason. Its totally OK to run volume at 2, no need to cank it up unles you need it. Play the amp!!!
