How loud should your amp be?

As loud as the drummers snare is if you're dealing with a small stage. If its a large stage the most important thing is balance. So if you're running a high gain amp.... balance yourself with the other musicians. if you're using Class A power.... you will need to turn your amp up to at least 4 or 5 to get anything decent out of it. So.... that means if its too loud you can always side wash the amp. Meaning turn it sideways so you can hear it but it doesnt interfere with the soundman. Or lean the amp back on a wood block so it points up.

Hope that helps
