Tone issue with band
Hello, I am fairly new to this forum. I was wondering if I could get a little advice from some of you guys. I play lead guitar in our group and I like to play loud. The problem is that in order to get my tone, my volume is too loud most of the time compared to the rest of the group. I tried turning my 4 x 12 cabinet around to face the wall, but then the tone sounds very "bassy" and solos do not cut through. I place my 4 x 12 cabinet on a couple of milk crates to get the cab off the floor a bit as I find these cabs are very directional. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We typically play in small to medium sized clubs.
Thanks in advance
