After Christmas, time for a combo

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Mr.QuakQuak, Dec 25, 2003.


  1. Ok I know there is alot of topics on combo's but I'm looking for more of direct opinions. I got two gift certificates to GC, and cash totalling to about $560. I'm looking for a practice jamming combo of 100 watts and above. Since it is after the holidays I don't want to spend alot of time in the store for it will likely be very busy. I'm just looking for reccomendations. Also they are having a sale starting friday I think, maybe I can get a good deal.

    As for playing I play mainly rock. Also blues, jazz, and the occasional funk :)


    Any and all help welcome.

    Have a happy New Year.

    Some things to check out there:

    Ampeg BA-115 Nice.
    Yorkville XM200
    SWR WorkingMan's 12
    Roland Bass Cube 30
    Ashdown Electric Blue 150-15

    These are all radically different sounding but good amps!

    My personal choices sound-wise would be either the Ampeg or the SWR, and you could use them in a band setting without worry. However, that little Roland 30 watt deal has gotten my attention! It really kicks for a little guy! It is so small and good sounding, it is hard to pass up. I might pick one up for myself! Good luck!

    If you can pick up a used SWR Workingman's 15, I recommend that also.

  3. I'm really hoping GC has the Ashdown because the last few times I was there, they didn't. I also never see it on musiciansfriend anymore.

    My guitarist uses a cube 30..so i assume the bass one is equally good.
    But i LOVE my Ampeg B100r and will always recomend it.
     
  5. Well I'm going tomorrow. Hope I find something good. I'm really interested in the yorkville but some people hated them. I'll just try them out ^^
     
  6. They didn't have much of a selection but ...
