    Here's my current setup that I'm borrowing from a friend:

    Hartke 3500 350w head
    Ampeg 2x10 cab
    Hartke 1x15 cab

    I need to get my own rig and I've been looking at combos for portability. The amp that looks right for me in my price range is the Ampeg BA115HP.

    My question is whether or not the BA115HP which is 220w will stand up in a 4 piece rock outfit the way the Harke setup I've been using will. Keep in mind, I'm usually not blaring - I rarely take the volume above 4.

    Any advice?

    I've got the same question as this guy. I've seen some mentions of the BA-115 (100 watts) not being loud enough sometimes, but nothing on the BA-115HP (220 watts). Sounds pretty tasty. All I've really got now is my practice amp and whatever I borrow from someone else.

    I think this amp would work out for quieter things (jazz, perhaps) but want thoughts on its rockability. I'm thinking this may be the amp for me (still have to try out Ashdown, though, if I can afford one).
