This week I actually kicked off the show with my “radio guy voice” kind of cheesy – but it made people laugh so that’s something… “From land of snow and tacos”. If you don’t know what I’m talking about – it’s worth at least a listen for the first 2 minutes.

So right out of the gate! Speaker Positioning On Stage. Amp stand or right on the stage?¬†Would you rather put your amp on an amp stand or directly on the stage? Well in our small assembly we had 1 for the amp stand – and 2 against. Brian hates when the speakers of his amp are pointed right at his leg because he can’t get a good tonal reference between his guitar, pedals, amp, and speaker sounds. Travis and I aren’t a fan of amp stands and would rather have our amps directly on the stage. We both in agreement that we weren’t a fan of having our amp’s speaker blasted right in our ears. (that’s what the front row is for right?) I actually use a long cable and walk out in the audience – before the show- to get a good reference to what my amp sounds like.

Boosting an Overdriven Amp: So what is the perfect way to boost an already overdriven amp? Well – we have to ask ourselves – what is perfect? Other than tacos and Travis’ hair of course. According to Brian though – there are about 3 general ways you can boost an already overdriven amp. 1.) A complete full frequency boost. (like our Decibel plus). 2.)Top End Boosts. Which are going to take off some bottom end. 3.)Midrange Boosts. (My personal favorite.) Think a tube screamer.

Stay tuned for this Thursday’s show Tone Chasers!
