Nah, but I don't feel like arguing about it.

Some much needed input into this thread

I guess so, if both the pre and the post are up all the way.... I was just talking about the post being up all the way, though. The pre could be much lower.

Edge plays JMI ac30s so you only have the lone vol. There is no vol/master like some of todays amps. The new CC ac30s have this. The RI dont nor the old JMIs

Ahh, I see. I've only dealt with the newer ac30s.

I play guitar as an hobby in my living room. To play U2 I use backing tracks with live vocals, strat, another cheap humbucker guitar (Vantage), korg a3 multieffect (and its FC6 pedal controller connected with a volume and an expression pedal, both korg kvp-001) loaded with Guitar1 spc card, vox valvetronics amp AD30VT setted to emulate AC30TB. This is fine for me, really enjoy.
