200w Amp Suggestions

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by DarkAvianFind, Jan 11, 2020.


  1. After 15 years I sold my GK 400RB-ii back to its original owners, who sold it to me with a CW 215 cab for $100. They're touring again and I haven't played out in a few years.

    It felt like the right thing to do, but I'm a little heartbroken and now without an amp. So I'm looking for recommendations for a 200w amp in the less-than-$1000 range. Options seem limited and I'm currently eyeing the Ampeg SVT Micro. Thoughts?

    What about replacing it with the same amp? There are still some available new, or there are plenty on the used market.

  5. I'm definitely considering it. I loved that amp. Just wondering if there were better options out there.

    The Micro VR is a really cool head...I've been using it a lot lately and it sounds great and looks way cool. But the PF350 sounds and costs the same, does more wattage, and fits in a laptop bag. Unless you have the 210av cab it's designed to pair with, I'd go with the PF350 if you go that route.
     
  7. Traynor SB112 or SB115. Both are 200 watt, lightweight combos. They punch well above their weight.
    Traynor also makes lightweight heads from 200 watts and up.

    All of their products are cost effective.

    A used Fender Rumble 200 v.3 or 500 v.3 Head and a used cab or two of just about any configuration can be had for well under a grand. Or a used Rumble 500 v.3 (210) combo and an extension cab will knock down walls if you so desire.
