    I've got a little 35 watt amp and I'm looking for something that I can actually hear in a band setting which I figure should be 100-120 watts or so, all for 300-350 dollars. So far I've liked the Fender Rumble 100 which I can get for only 300, but I've heard mention of Yorkville amps being better for that price range. Basically, what should I get for this price range? The Fender? A Yorkville? Something else?

    Try Behringer. I got their 120 watt amp and I'm fairly certain it's in your price range. The amp sounds great, has active and passive inputs, megabass, tape in and out and plenty of other features. I've never heard a Yorkville or Fender Rumble in action, but I know I like how the Behringer 120 sounds.

    (I've got an Ashdown Mag series 1x12 200watt combo I'd ship within the continental USA for $350)


  4. I own the Fender Rumble 100, and I would have to say its a great value. It holds up between 2 guitarists ( both using 100 watt crate combos) and a loud drummer. Plus those lights on the bottom are really cool. Pretty sturdy aswell, fell off stage the other day and it still works perfect, barely an cosmetic damage too.

    Used Ampeg B100r. Nicest sounding 100 watt amp ive heard so far. Nice vintage sound.

    Maybe if I can find a new one to play first, I don't want to buy an amp without hearing it.
