    Guys, im looking for a good budget amp, price max. 150 euro. I think Ampeg BA-108 and Warwick BC20 are cool, any other suggestions? And what you think about those ones?

    Do you need the amp for homepractice only, or do you want to rehearse with a band, or for gigging also?
    Because an Ampeg BA108 may sound nice, but you'll never be heard next to a drummer, for instance.

  4. In the USA, I see a lot of used Hartke 3500s for between $150 and $250. I am not sure what used ones go for in Europe but you might want to see what kind of deal you can find on one of those.

    This is what I did for my first amp, only mine was cheaper: a used Hartke 2500. It's a keeper. Used for the win!
     
  7. New Fender Rumble 40's are coming your way. Give them a serious listen. Soooo much better than their competition. You can thank me later.

    Tested the BA108 and BA110 (amongst others) at the local musicstore today.
    The BA108 is IMHO perfect for home practice, as well as the BA110.
    No need to spend extra cash.
