Hello, let me explain, please. I just wanted to share this with you.
Yesterday I went to see this band I like sooo much.
I had my seat at first row. In the center. Just in front of the singer. File 1 Seat 1. As I love the guitar player's sounds (very classic Tele and 335 sounds with, yesterday, an AC30 and a Hot Rod Deluxe) and style, I also got tickets for first row but just in front of the player (yes; that's the kind of freak I am). I finally decided I'd use the one in the center and gave the others to my brother, who also plays guitar.
From my position, the guitar sounded... Perfect. That's the word. Perfect. So beautiful...
In fact I thought I should consider using my tube amps again for some gigs.
Until, at the end, my brother (remember: he also plays guitar and was also in first row but exactly in front of the guitar player), told me the guitar sounds were so horrible and loud that he couldn't really enjoy the gig.
The only conclusion I can get:
I got the right tickets.
Get yours right now but, please, not in front of the guitar player in the first rows.
I'm not saying at all he should use a modeler. No way. Never. But I have to think... What about some guitar amp shields?
And... Yes... How could it sound with a modeler, for the audience?
