ok, ive been playing for almost 12months, im in a band and we are going to be gigging fairly soon, so im upgrading my bass amp. so far i have looked at an ashton 150W head and 4x10 cabinet, and an ashton 300W head and the same cabinet. the 150W and cabinet package are $1198AU, and the 300W pack is $1498AU. in the band situation im competing with a brutal drummer, a full on guitarist and a loud singer. we are also expanding to a synth guy soon. i looked at other higher quality 'names' but they are ay out of my price range. i am yet to play on the amps because they didnt have a lefty in store but i will be taking mine in before buying regardless. which do you think will work the best? i could also go for the BA150 ashton 150W combo for $799AU. we are playing hard rock/metal, so which is the better deal?i think with keyboard and guitar i might need the 300, and its only a few extra bucks for double the output. im not willing to spend over $2000AU for anything if its got less power, regardless of the brand. currently i have a 15W amp thats about to buy the farm from some heavy thrashing any help will be much appreciated.
