In the 90's I played dozens of gigs in small bars with amps ranging from 15 to 30 (tube) watts. I would play a small to medium sized tavern with a Blues Jr. On bigger stages we'd be going through the P.A. Yet when I look for information on amps, all the time I see players saying they can't hear themselves onstage, with amps of 30 to 100 watts! Seriously? WTH? How loud does a band need to be? In my opinion, when live music returns (if it EVER comes back like it was), folks will be very "volume shy". All I've ever played live is Blues, Country, and some Oldies/Classic Rock. Am I just an out of touch old geezer???
