Last Wednesday 06 July 2005 00:57, Brett McCoy was like:

It's not that simple.

1) Marshalls don't turn down that well, even if you have one of those
half-power switches on the back you can still saturate small venues without
really trying. And some people can only afford one amp. If you're the
engineer you're going to have to deal with whatever random equipment
combination they throw at you.

2) Everybody does it. This phenomenon is not isolated to lead guitarists. For
some reason, what is obvious to anyone standing in the hall is not obvious
when you're holding a plugged in instrument. In many venues, the right volume
for the mix is too quiet for the player. Finding players who don't sneak up
their on-stage sound while the engineer isn't looking is a rare treat.

Good monitoring can help ~(again, you need everything going through the desk
to achieve this)

3) The drummer always plays the gig at twice the velocity and volume of the
soundcheck.

4) Of course it'll sound completely different once you've got an audience in
there. ;p (seriously though, a good audience runs at around 100dB)
