While any latency does upset the feedback loop between ears-brain-fingers, you can of course work around this through practice. You could probably become proficient without being able to hear the sounds at all. Sure, it could slow down learning until your brain has come to terms with the latency delay, but as you still have the physical touch feedback from ...

The Fender 15B is a bass amp. Bass amps are usually focused on clean signal replication and most do little to color the sound of the instrument whereas guitar amps impart more tonal signature to the sound. As you are looking for distortion I assume you are not using a bass as this this effect is rarely used by bassists. If you are playing an normal 6 ...

Slash plays some notes as hammer-ons and pull-offs as well. A ...

Yes, but it's not really practical. You can use a 2:1 transformer to drive the speakers in parallel (i.e. 4 Ω mode), but such an extra transformer is unwieldy and may well colour the sound substantially†. You will lose 50% power. That may sound like a lot, but this is actually only a 3 dB reduction – if you've ever used a mixing console you'll know that it's ...

Before master volume controls were standard this allowed a Fender amp to be run at a cleaner setting, and then bolstered to concert volume using another power amp. ...
