Why? Because I always help my band mates set up and break down. Our last gig was easy, as the house provided a PA & decent drum set. Each band member made only two trips in. Do 50 watt guitar combos with Neo speakers exist yet? Any good? Currently, my lead guitarist uses a Bugera V5 (5watts, 1x8", 25lbs) for practice. Its an over achiever. His main gear is a Marshall 50 watt 1x12 58lb 2 channel combo, which gives him plenty of stage volume anywhere we play, and it gets miked. The tones generated with either of the above are fabulous. In my last band, both guitarists played mainly through Fender Twins, weighing 85+ lbs. That's a lot of unnecessary weight, power and speaker (2) to get "the tone"... I've noticed since the lead player has down sized. All this gear, even the small Marshall, outweighs my GK MB115s, each weighing around 35lbs.
