This concerns amplifiers/amplifier wattage. I’m rhythm guitarist in a four-piece cover band (with lead guitarist, bass and drums) that plays 50s, 60s and 70s pop and rock. None of us mic our amps. The amps I use for gigs (only one at a time, I switch them up now and then): A Fender Blues Jr. (15 watts/12-inch speaker); a VOX MV50 AC head (25 watts into 8 ohms – I use it with a 2 x 10 cab loaded with older Carvins); a VOX Mini Superbeeetle (also 25 watts into its matched 8 ohm 10-inch speaker). The only pedals I use are delay (with all three amps), a reverb with the MV50, and an EQ with the Superbeetle. These three rigs are always more than loud enough to keep up with the drummer, and for any gig we’ve ever played, including outdoor ones with pretty big crowds where all can hear us fine, even at some distance from us. As a matter of fact, I’m never even close to turning them up all the way, and a few times, we’ve even been asked by venue owners to turn down a bit. I often see posts here and in other forums about needing much higher wattage amps than what I use for gigging and/or keeping up with a drummer. And that even they have to be mic’ed for those circumstances. My questions are: How are these small, non-mic’ed amps working for me, but seemingly would not for many others? Or, what am I doing wrong (right?)?
