Two Guitar cab questions

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by StoutXXX, Feb 8, 2004.


  1. 1) What is the main difference between this 16/8/4 ohm thing for guitars??? I understand the power differences with my bass rig and 4 and 8 ohm cabs but with guitar is it different .? I run an all tube setup and just see some cabs for 16 ohm but not 8 and stereo options. Just want to maximize my sound and tone.
    2) And also I find that when I switch my EQ on my guitar head i want just a hint more boost/gain without actually cranking out the master full on and I have the pre gain anywhere from 8 to 10. Ive heard some overdrive pedals with just a nudge in the level and a bit of distortion just to beef up the signal... any suggestions here? P.s. I love the natural overdrive it has been when i suck the mds out of the EQ for metal tunes it thins out a little...thanks
