I've been thinking of getting one of these for a long time now and I'm convinced it's the amp for me. The only problem is, literally NOWHERE anywhere near me has any where I can try any which is driving me crazy.
I know there's a load of different versions of the amp but it's probably a 50w/100w head I'll be going for. I play in a metal band and I plan on using it with a tube screamer for the typical thrash tone.
1 - Does the master volume act as it does on other amps?, cause I see very very mixed opinions on this, as on my Laney Ironheart, the amp sounds sort of the same but a bit weaker if I turn the volume down but not enough to notice to the casual listener.
2 - if it is just like a typical master volume , would I be able to turn the amp down if a soundguy asked me to without it affecting my tone too much, as I still want the metal tones when mic'd up.
Any advice/opinions welcome, just really need to know this stuff cause it's kinda important with them being such a big pricey amp
