Advice on small combos

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by roger winkler, May 1, 2006.

  1. Hello to all, I need some help or advice on what the best bang for the buck would be on small combo amps. Here are my "specs". I play in a classic rock band and sometimes we do get loud, most times not. So I was thinking somewhere around 250 watts. Next, I'd like to keep the weight down to 50 pounds or less, I'm tired of lugging heavy gear. Cost wise I was hoping to stay in the neighborhood of say $400.00. I looked at the Nemesis 2x8, but it was rated at 120 watts FET. By the way, what is FET power? I looked at Ashdown combos and was impressed except for the weight factor. I would also like an amp rated at 8 ohms. I can't think of anything else to add to my post at the moment,so any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Roger Winkler:help: :help: :help:

    FET just means it's a solid state amp, but it uses one of the two kinds of common output devices -- FET or Bipolar. It makes little difference in terms of the performance of the amp from the user standpoint.
