Can it keep up with a drummer though?
Ah. We don't play places where mic'ing amps is convenient or usually necessary.Depends on how loud your side fills are.
I just played an outdoor show with mine + conventional pedal board using a vintage Strat.
Drummer was playing a big Yamaha stage custom kit and big Zyldjian A cymbals and it was no problem getting loud enough. But we didn't have any drums in the monitors or side fills. Bass player used a 1x15 stage amp and the other guitar player used a Twin.
I had a 57 off axis on the Princeton and did have some guitar in the wedges but not much.

I saw Eric play for about 30 people when he first started out...There is clear difference in his live tone, then and now. The Marshall's tend to get woofy for him sometimes because of all that volume. In the studio is completely controllable.I have loved his musicianship since that first floppy 45RPM in Guitar player, but when I've seen him the live tone didn't sound much like the amazing recordings.
