fun fact. the advice i give young musicians is wear year protection live and during practice. when i give them examples, i usually tell them about roger miller from mission of burma. fun fact. when i seen burma, he was giving out ear plugs and saying "if you all love music, take these so you can enjoy it some other day" for those who dont know. roger miller ended up with really serious hearing damage and had to split up burma as a result. nowadays they have splash shields for the drums, his amps are usually in front of him, he wears ear plugs and rifle range ear protection. p.s. if you've never watched the documentary "this is not a photograph" do it. it's super interesting.torchindy wrote: ↑Fri Feb 15, 2019 8:37 amThanks guys. Lots of good info here. I'll have to try the EQ pedal idea for sure. figure if I get a mxr 10-band or something I could at least turn down the frequencies that ARENT cutting through, thereby inadvertently boosting the mids.
The turning down thing sounds like a good idea too, if I could convince the other guys to do it. they were formerly in a hardcore band and used to practice with everything at 10 so there's probably some hearing loss issues or something. Also I'd be a bit worried that the super might sound thinner at a lower volume... Typical practice volume was around 4 on the dial which is right before it starts to break up on its own.
As for the klon pedal idea, would the ehx clone work? Do they come close enough?
I've got a line on a jcm800 head for a decent price, going to go try it out but I'd rather not spend a pile of money if I don't have to. I have always wanted one but there are still better things I could do with the money
the soul food is a decent klone for the price. even if you get the klone, i still think an eq pedal is a good idea with it. EQ pedals can be great saviors some nights.
