rd2rk Posted June 28, 2019 Share Posted June 28, 2019 Looking for advice from players experienced at public performance. Help me decide! My Performance experience (since 1963) has always been on bass, though I've always dabbled at guitar. Since I've been retired I've had time to play more guitar, and I'm starting to imagine myself getting good enough to look for people to jam with - rock, blues, psychedelic stoner ambient craziness (second childhood?). I have a Helix Floor and a Stomp. I've been playing guitar and bass through an FRFR112. I should note that I live in an apartment and 75db in the afternoon is about all I feel good about inflicting on my very tolerant neighbors (they tell me they LIKE my playing!). The FRFR112 sounds GREAT with bass, not so good with guitar. It doesn't sound BAD, but there's an upper end raspiness on overdriven/hi-gain tones that I THINK is a result of the tweeter, and it defies all attempts to eq it out. This has led to G.A.S. for an old school tube amp, which I've never used for guitar. I happened upon a used Eganator Tweaker 15/112 combo at a GC in Grand Rapids, where I'm going for a family thing in July. It sounded like just what I'm looking for, and after reading the 4 part thread over on TGP (I know all about the reliability issues), decided to go for it. I'll try it out on my family with the Stomp and see if I like it. There's also a used DT25 available at a GC in NC. Since 2.8 (with my Floor) will be able to fully support it's features, that's tempting too. Opinions, advice, warnings, especially from tube amp and DT users, would be much appreciated. Thanks All!
