    Hey guys, Ive been trying out the Ampeg Micro-CL stack and I really like it, im in a band who are just playing local pubs/bars and occasionally the odd bigger venue with 500 people capacity and im wondering if it will cut in in such places, our guitarist uses a Marshall combo amps with 2 x15 speakers thats 300W I think.

    I was wondering if you think it could cut it playing alongside that.
    My current amp is a PROformance 60 ba 185watt 1x15 speaker amp but its really crap and i want to upgrade to something better for the gigging I have explained, any help is appreciated :p

    in a word..


    although some have used the Micro-VR head with two SVT210AV cabs..

    IMO, you'd be better off looking at the new Portaflex heads and cabs..

    I have one that stays at home for a practice amp, and there's no way I could imagine it keeping up with much in a live situation. I play at a pretty small church, and there's no way it could hang there. 2 keys, 1 electric, 1 acoustic, drums, and singers.. Also, not sure what bass you're playing, but it doesn't handle a low B well at all. Heck, it struggles with anything below A on my Zon at home.

    I would definitely suggest looking elsewhere for a rig. What's your budget?

    I was thinking max of $600-$650

    You'd have to go used for $600 to get a decent rig that can hang. The Micro CL isn't real quiet, but it's on the borderline between enough and not enough, depending on how loud everyone else is.
