FDP Forum / Performer's Corner / Got to turn up for 4th of July!

My band YesGo played for a city July 4th celebration in a high school football stadium. Probably the largest venue I've played. Really fun playing on a big stage with a big PA. Finally, a gig where I could turn up my Traynor YCV40 to where it's supposed to be. I've had it maybe a year or so, but could never turn it up past 1 1/2. Just too much for small bar gigs.

It's just a 40-watter combo with a 12", but that thing really puts out! It was mic'ed, of course, but so was the big Line 6 100-watt half-stack from the other band. It had no problem keeping up. I started it out at about 7 on the clean channel volume, but had to back it off a little! Used pedals for dirt, but really much of it I just controlled with the guitar volume. First big show for my Reverend Club King as well. Fun gig.

Here's a song from that set. (I counted off the song too fast, so the solo is a little out of control. Playing live is fun!)

For you pedal geeks, the dirt is coming from a Caline Orange Burst Distortion, which is a clone of an Xotic BB. I kick on my Keeley-modded RAT for the solo.
