I found my Boss NS2 wored great, but only if used as a send/return loop.
Why not? I've kept up to drummers just fine with a 5 watt tube amp, and 15W solid state before.Don't expect to keep up to a drummer's volume with that amp.
My master is almost always at max on every amp I playIf you don't want screaming feedback yes - and given what the amp is, you don't want the master at max.
Get a more powerful amp. It will make your life easier.
Only the Valve Junior. I removed the Master from my Super ReverbThey probably aren't practice amps.
I personally prefer a heavy combo to a head/cab setupWay too much weight IMO - head and 212 cab would be easier to deal with, and you can snag a 412 later.
I have not. But I had a 2x12 crate with a single top handle. It weighed in at 86.5 lbsHave you ever lifted a Roadster 212 though? OMFG!
As well as the central top handle, it has big bass-cab type handles on the sides but it is too wide for someone (at least me) to grab on to by themselves. It was literally a two-man lift everywhere but into the back of my car (a hatchback with a low tailgate height). I remember taking it upstairs once - ONCE - and it took about 10 minutes, going up one stair at a time. It was a great amp, but I sold it mostly because I just couldn't take it out very often. Love my LSS @ 50lbs so much more. An amp that gets used all the time.
Not nearly as much of an issue with solid state amps, apart from efficiency differences. A solid state amp actually prefers to see no speaker at allWhat about the ohms? Is it not hard on an amp to run (especially full blast) with mismatched ohms?
