I'm almost sold on the BG-250 115 - nice price, nice sounding amp (so I've read), interesting features (ie. tone print) - the only thing holding me back is that, although I'd be using it mainly as a practice amp, I might do some school orchestra gigs with it - so the louder the better. Anyone willing to bet they'll be making a good thing better at NAMM 2014 - say, a BG-300, or a BG-350? (The Genz Benz Contour 500 had been my dream combo, but it's difficult to get here in Switzerland, and now that it looks like it's curtains for Genz Benz, I've started to look elsewhere ...). Thanks!
