pickslide said:If you have 2 amp heads, both the same model, but one is 30 watts and one is 100 watts, what is the difference? Is the 100 just a lot louder than the 30?
ooooooh Witch Rocca are you looking at? New or used? The new Jennelle is bugging meNonepickslide said:Great info..thanks!!!! I am looking at possibly purchasing a Roccaforte and they offer the same model in 30w and 100w. I will mostly use it for around the house and playing in a band with some friends. I know this is a performing amp, but I figure if I am going to get something great, no point in holding back.
That's pretty common. You've gotta put something on that huge stage and if you don't have a Stonehenge set with midgets dancing around it, a bunch of dummy speaker cabs work just fine.washburned said:During the intermission I asked the sound engineer what the small box was: he told me it was a Fender Deluxe reverb, it was mic'd for the FOH, a signal was taken out to the Marshall half stack for live stage sound and the three full stacks were empty cabs/heads with pilot lights! Bass player similarly had four Ampeg SVTs, only one was loaded.
IMO Master Volume circuits have improved dramatically over the last 10 - 15 years. You won't need to crank it too much to get good sounds with a GOOD Master Volume design. Therefore a 100w amp is just as usefull. Tonally I prefer them as they have much more bottom and authority, but the high end has more harmonics to it as well with the higher wattage, all else being the same.nine said:You might end up liking the 30 watter better because you'll be able to get a nice crunch going at band levels, whereas the 100 watter will probably be way too loud before you get crunch.
