    I see a few things going on. A home practice amp cannot move air like that or have such glorious and natural distortion. The fizzy electric shaver type distortion you get with a master volume practice amp is not the same thing. If your playing sucks with a practice amp, it will suck just as much with the setup in the vid.

    My crystal ball predicts a new boutique distortion named: "Fizzy Electric Shaver"...

    Tinnitus is no joke and not at all funny... You guys probably know this but ear protection is sometimes the right thing to do. Tinnitus can drive you mad.

    Edit: besides, who the hell thinks they need that to adequately play their guitar with feeling amd good taste? Somtiemes I get the feeling that all those nice amps, pedals, and even excess guitars are compensating for something the player feels they lack.

    Sure, but I'll bet it would sound good on a really gigantic stage, but definitely way overkill otherwise. I think the thought is, "what can I do to improve my sound?" Learn how to play? Nah, to much work. If I just had (fill in the blank) I know I could sound really awesome.

    GREAT point. I meant to quote Norlin but clicked the post button on accident.

    Yeah, nice setup. I think I need a V.

    On another note, I used to live north of Boston myself, nice part of the world.
