When I'm standing right next to my rig it sounds great , but 10 feet away it sounds like crap. I'm using a peavey 4/10 cab w/ an ampeg svp pro preamp, and a crappy 400w poweramp my guitarist gave me w/ a peavey cirrus 5. When at least 10 feet back the tone is alright but there is no punch. I'm in a metal band and incorperate alot of funk, jazz, and tapping when I play. Am I just asking too much from my rig trying to play this technical in a metal band, or is it just trying to find the right preamp setting? It sounds great on recording.
