Hello everybody, i find myself in need of a new amplifier. In fact I have been needing it for quite a long time, but I've never been bothering much before since all I would do were rehearsals. Now, on the other hand, something is stirring up, I'll probably start doing some shows with two bands so I HAVE to make up my mind and buy something. Something powerful. Something good. Something quite easy to carry around, since I'll rarely do big stages and, being a stereotypical lazy italian, I just can't stand heavy rigs. I would like something that I can use both with my Beatles tribute band and my main gig, an experimental-fusion-math-something metal band named Observe (check out the songs on the bandpage to have an idea of what we are doing) After careful consideration and trials I've restricted my options to the following: Ampeg MicroVR (or PF350) + 2x SVT210AV (vertically stacked) Mesa Walkabout Scout 12" Aguilar Tonehammer 350 with some kind of cab (I was thinking about a BagEnd 1x15) Orange Terror Bass 500 (no clue about which cab to pair it with) but now I'm at total loss. I like the MicroVR tone, but I fear that it would be too quiet for Observe. The Walkabout has the perfect tone, and i think it would be powerful enough, but I don't know really. Man, this is tough. Could you please guide a poor soul looking for his first real amp?
