We played a gig about an hour away this past weekend, at a venue we've never played before. They offered a Blues Deluxe as the backline amp. When we got there the Blues Deluxe was all set up on a nice amp stand... the ground prong of the plug had been sheared off. I had brought my Pro Jr. as a backup and a speaker cable, hoping to use the PJr thru the speaker in the cab. But I forgot my 1/4" connector at home .. so I plugged in the amp. The PA was on, I touched the guitar strings to the mic and nothing happened, phew. What a pitiful piss-poor amp. There was a note "DO NOT TURN THIS AMP PAST 3" so I turned it to 3, and I was met with a mouse fart of whisper soft guitar... Turned it up to 5 and I still could not hear it 10 feet away. So I turned to the drive channel. With the drive on 4 and the master on 6 I was getting DRRI on 2 level volumes.. This is supposed to be the linear taper master volume pot that goes from 0 to ears bleeding at 1 on the knob. I still could not hear myself the entire gig even though I'm on the overdrive channel cranked up a good ways and the amp is on a stand pointed right at my ears. I don't know what was wrong with the amp or if it was modded with a master volume set to 0.05 out of 10 or what. Sad guitar night for me I'll never assume the backline amp is usable again.. I wish places would not do this to musicians The "Loud Fender Amp" thread made me think about this amp. Your disappointing backline amp stories?
