Hi guys...happy new year to all of you!
In my main band we play in-ear most of the time and I got used to it. Happy with my sound...all good.
I'm currently helping out in another band and they do not play in-ear.
It's a classic 80s/90s rock cover band (AC/DC, Black sabbath etc.).
Drum, Bass, Singer and 2 guitars.
The other guitar-player runs a Marshall JCM 800 through a 4x12 cab. Sounds awesome.
I now tried my DXR-10 and my Matrix Q12...but my guitar is hardly noticeable.
It's not a matter of loudness....the energy, the meat of the tone is somehow lost. When I play alone in the same room...it's all good.
So my question is: Should I bring (=schlepp!) my 2x12 guitar cab? Will that help?
Or am I just used to in-ears and no other amp/cab will sound good anymore?
What's your experience?
