My band is a two guitarist band. I cover the rhythm the other guy does most of the lead playing. We do rock covers.
For quite a while the other guitarist used a Fender combo and reasonable sized pedalboard set up. I've always gone straight in to Marshall style amp (the amp has changed numerous times but always a higher gain Marshall style amp).
That blended quite well but he has recently changed to a Marshall JVM combo so he can cut down the size of the pedalboard.
Since doing that I think our sound hasn't been so balanced.
I guess the question is, any thoughts on how to better blend two quite similar gain tones? Whilst also having both cut through enough to be heard (as we only really do pub gigs where no backline is mic'd up and the sound is usually pretty bad anyway because you are crammed in a corner somewhere)...
I'm thinking back the gain off a bit generally for both of us as a start to keep things a bit clearer.
