: hey ya'll- I'm playing with a pretty loud combo and noticing that as I up the amp volume it gets harder to discern my intonation until I hit a note that is really off. the amp is a working man's 15, so its built for urb. playing w.o amplification seems much easier at maintaining my intonation because I can hear it better and adjust as needed. any suggestions? thanks! go team! tom

Check your EQ settings . I play with some loud combos ( including a blues band with 3 guitars and some rockabilly bands ) and have no trouble with intonation - if you have too much bass and not enough mid range frequencies your sound will be muddy and you'll have problems then . A graphic EQ may help here .
incidentely I use an Acoustic Image Contra with a modified extension speaker that has a second power amp in it - it's as clear as they come !
