I was at my favorite local music store recently, and stumbled on a too-good-to-pass-up deal on a new Fender Twin Reverb. I’d really only gone in to buy a harmonica as a Christmas present, but somehow I left with a whole bunch of new gear (including the gift, since that’s why I was there…).
So far, I’ve had the opportunity to really open up the volume once. It’s pretty awesome physically feeling the music you’re making. It’s an experience that never gets old for me, but I’ve heard it bothers neighbors after a while. For that reason, I play at a less blistering volume when I’m at home just practicing.
I like to joke that I have the exact opposite of the rig I should have for the kind of music that I make, but the fact is, I’m happier with my sound now than I’ve ever been.
I’m excited to finish writing music and get to performing.
