As a general statement, most high wattage tube amps start to run out of headroom when you have the master at around 2-3 o'clock and begin to distort. When this glorious event occurs, angels sing, women weep, and eardrums collapse onto themselves and burst into flames.
"So often our hands get caught up in ruts of muscle memory. 'Muscle memory' is an accurate term. We get used to doing certain things, without even being aware of them. This ultimately not only shapes and therefore limits our technique, it also shapes what we compose, what we write. We end up thinking still unknowingly trapped in that box." -Adam Nitti
