it's always good to have a backup amp... i have an old fender rocpro 1000, it's cheap, loud and sounds "good enough". so if i ever have to go a period of time without my main amp. i still got the rocpro just in case.

who needs backup amps on gig nights anyways.

do you guys only play hometown gigs or what? I can't be arsed to drag along an extra top, let alone two extra tops (two guitarist) it doesn't even fit in the van anymore, haha. we only bring ONE spare guitar, a gibby les paul. I've had to use it twice now but I've never had amp troubles, the other guy had a broken footswitch once, that's basically it. We do bring spare tubes though, they're packed in my flightcase.

I'm planning to throw in a V-amp as my backup preamp/effects unit if my ENGL decides to crap out on me mid-performance.

I doubt it though, unless Satan blows up my tubes from Hell.

Even then I doubt it. German manufacturing = top notch.

yeah, i guess i could say something like that... i have the engl straight 100 and the splawn promod 100... both are amazing...

but i've had periods of time in the past where i havent had an amp... so i decided... what the hell? i traded some guy a hush super C and a bbe maximizer for his old rocpro.

it's nowhere near as nice... but it's a "just in case" amp.

i alway think it's a good idea to have a spare...
like a spare condom... better to have and not need, than to need and not have.

for a two guitarist band, i don't have any problem bringing one spare head...
not that i've ever had to use it but hey.

beeing realistic, I can't even bring a backup, plus I don't want to go through the effort of taking a spare whilst I won't need it. If theres problems I can allways borrow other band's amps.. most places have their own guitar tops here too (ok, they're usually crap, but it's the idea that counts)

try playing once a week and dragging an extra top along, that shit doesn't fly.

bullshit, only 'big' touring bands have huge-ass vans and roadies.

CC didn't even have backups with them. same goes for Bleeding Through and The Bled, BT only had a lame randall combo backstage haha.

I was watching that Lamb of God DVD (Killadelphia...what a ghey name...good band though) and one of the guitarists had a single Mesa Mark IV through a rack tuner and then a compressor. That's it. Nothing else. No backup. No spare. no nothing.

And I'd say LoG is a pretty "big" band in terms of the metal scene.

i've been there... and i really don't think it's that big of a deal... not like another head takes up alot of space on stage or in my van. and i'm not a pussy, i don't mind carrying my own shit in. and it doesnt add much, if any time to your setup unless of course you need to use it..

i don't have any roadies or anything... and you never know when something "unfortunate" may happen... sure your amp may be of very high build quality... but that doesnt mean shit to me.. ALL amps are vunerable. especially the ones with the magicall little tone bottles we call tubes.

cuz tubes are totally the only thing that could go wrong with a tube head.

I like not hauling my ass of for no good reason

and yes, the only thing that ever broke in one of my previous tube amps, was indeed a tube. good job that we've got an EMS system so it even works with half the power tubes broken

no way you're dragging along an extra tube head every week, I don't buy it, haha.

but an extra head doesn't take up a lot of space. You can put in the driver seat if you have no choice I always brought my randall warhead along with me as a back up. My dual rectifier being the main amp. And we always drove with one van and one car. in the van we transported the drum kit, one cabinet. the mesa and the randall. And in the car we stuffed another cabinet. And 4 guitars.And 2 guitar heads for the other guitarist. We something only had difficulties with transporting the people forming the band

co-driver's seat? there's a fat fuck called Bram sitting there...

we don't have the luxury of driving with one van AND a car, we just drive with one van and collect all travel fees, man if you need to drive an extra car, thats gonna cost you, especially if you're up in Fryslán like we are every now and then!

DH a small band, right...

I'll see them again 20th august. I bet they have an interliner and a shitload of people around, I heard they had that the last time.

some people just don't have huge ass vans, plus I can't be arsed to drag an extra amp along. if mine breaks down I can allways borrow of one of the other bands. I didn't say it was a big deal to bring one, I'm just saying it's not allways possible and it's not allways necesairy, plus if you have to play every weekend, you'de rather have an amp at home instead of carrying it around every weekend and risking damage. I only have one flightcase and that's for the mighty Powerball...
