So how many do I really need? I feel my mesa Walkabout at 300 watts is a little under powered for my needs. Yet the boutique amps like Divided by 13 or Morgan are 200 watts. I understand the all tube amps are louder argument that works for an over driven guitar amp but for bass watts are watts since most of us are not pushing an amp to overdrive. So are these boutique amps only for recording and small gigs, is it assumed that you will be rocking massive sets of (low wattage speakers), or is PA support a must? Someone pleas explain how these low powered amps compete with the big boys.
