ive been testing amps recently, and having compared a gallien-krueger, a peavey and an ashdown, i liked the sound of the ashdown the most. The pnly concern i have is with volume. when connected to an external speaker it is plenty loud, but it's gonna be a while before i can afford that. I'm wondering wheter or not this is loud enough to handle small gigs. The concern is mostly based on my having heard that ashdowns are quiet. The model number is ashdown mag c115-250. I found this for £400, but found a mag 115 400 for £570. I would be a lot happier spending less at the moment, but i dont want to have to compromise getting a quality amp that will last me. What do you think i should do? and advice /help would be much appreciated.
