So I am thinking about getting a new amp. I have a 10-watt practice amp I've used to shake the walls of my bedroom for about 3 years now. There is a possibility that I may actually play with some other folks in the future, but certainly nothing too fancy. Aside from that, I've just been curious about having a "real amp". I've got around $300 to spend. At first I thought I might get that 100w Acoustic 260 mkii ministack, even though I get the feeling that I'm getting taken in by some marketing gimmick with it. I did really like it when I played it in the store, though. But then I see that, for the same price, I could get, amongst several other options, one of those new Peavey Max 115 combos that is 300 watts, and in my guitar playing past I've never had any issue with Peaveys. I certainly don't need 300 watts in my bedroom, but my Polish heritage tells me to go with the best value. Plus, my toddlers love to switch my amps on and off repeatedly when no one is looking, and Peaveys are generally built to last. I could even just spend a bit more and get a separate head/cab, but I don't think my delusions of grandeur run that deep yet. Anyway, given all that, what advice do you have, TB?
