    Nice pics, looks like a cool venue to play at.
    That whole YouTube copyright on covers thing is a real pita but you can get around it by editing and cutting shorter sections of covers down and putting them all together in a video.

    Can you get a clean sound that has full bass with the Creambacks?

    I have that amp stock and I try to have a clean-ish channel and a classic crunch channel and if the crunch channel has a full sound then the clean channel sounds way to bright and thin.

    You don't have to worry about the written copyrights. The recording does exactly the same thing.
