I'm a complete bass neophyte. So please bear with my stupid questions. I have benn playing guitar for a few years, so I do know at last a couple things, but I'm just venturing into bass territory. I have an older Carvin B4 with active pickups as my one and only bass guitar. Usual Carvin quality. I picked up a used Acoustic B200 combo off Craigs list. I have read nothing but good reviews about this combo. $ for $ a good amp for small gigs, more than plenty good enough for practice, etc. When I played it at the guys house I checked it to make sure everything worked. All the controls and switches function. I did not crank the volume or gain controls, just maked sure they worked. Anyhow, I got home and started playing around with it. I'm really surprised at what I percieve as pretty low volume output. Maybe it's just me. I'm looking for a sanity check. At what volume and gain settings would you normally play live with a drummer and a guitar or two? I'm playing with the volume and gain both up 1/2 way and I'm not shaking the windows or anything. I don't even consider it loud at these settings. OK for practice, but no way it will compete with a lead guitar let alone a loud drummer. From the reviews, they say this is a loud amp. Maybe there's something wrong with this one? I play my Fender Deluxe Reverb with the volume on 2 (22 watts, 6V6 tubes). Same with my Peavey Delta Blues (30 watts EL84 tubes). They are plenty loud. Help me out here guys. Should I try and get my money back? Since it is solid state, I would think it either works, or it doesn't. Thanks for listening, and for any help you folks can offer this newbie.
