Unfortunately, with that rig you are still stuck dragging around a pedal board or going with minimal or no effects.  The digital amps have all that built in.  

 

Unfortunately, at gig volumes, the effects they use in those all-in-one digital amps are just All Noise, No Signal.  I've tried, believe me.  Nothing past 10 o'clock on the volume, all noise after that.

My days of roaring hot tubes and everything that goes with them are long behind me and a very long and good memory.  As are the conditions needed to play out with all of that.  My gigging life has cha

Arrived Friday, and it  sounds incredible.   Way exceeded my expectations.     gratuitous gear porn below    

I have in rehearsal, couple times with a drummer friend of ours and we get pretty pumped when he sits in.  It holds up well, volume=volume, not more noise. rct

Sounds like possibly you didn't balance the channel volume and master volume for your channel(s).   I found my Fender Mustang effects to be usable - although I prefer my stomp boxes 100% of the time of course.   It might depend on the music style too.  I haven't been playing anything "heavy" for a long time.

I've been adjusting amps in public places since about 1975 so yeah, I can balance volumes.  Nope, all noise in most of them.  A quiet pedalboard is a must.

During the stereo amp era I primarily used a touch of the built in chorus and delay, but not too heavy, mostly relying on my pedals. I still like to use chorus and delay in the effects loop between the pre-amp and the power amp.

I've played in musical theater productions with my Mustang amp.  Talk about needing noise free patches.   Worked out fine for me.  🤷‍♂️

Good deal.  I haven't had great experiences live at all.  Rehearse was fine though.

I recently traded my Reverb Deluxe  in a package deal and needed to replace it with something. I went shopping and decided on the Twin Reverb Tone Master. I liked the sound, the weight and the 5-way power attenuator . Makes it nice for home use being able to turn the power down and still adjust the controls to get the sound you want.

I tried a TM Deluxe Reverb back when they first came out, in a music store  sitting next to a Blues Jr that I was also checking out. I was really impressed by the light weight and plugged straight into it with no effects, I was able to get good clean Fender tones. The Blues Jr was warmer but really heavy. I was able to play them for only about an hour finding the sound was quite acceptable from both. I went away thinking about them, then COVID hit and the store closed.

We got together with our special guest drummer this afternoon.  I was able to get it about halfway up on the dial.  Strymon Sunset, junky MXR chorus, some verb, Van Halen.  It held up well, I was very happy as was our drummer bud. We played loud for an hour, hour and a half, it was a hoot.  Gosh, it was refreshing to be almost at a gig.

Bass player bought some gizmo, lets him record straight off the mixer into his phone.  We probably recorded 6 or 7 that way, everybody in the board and headphones on.  I used the Tonemaster DI, Cab Sim #2, sounded great.  Not the same mind you, but sounded great and really quiet.  It was a success.
