I am itchin to get my hands on a new amp, because my BX-15 simply isnt cutting it. Even when i play with my friends with a 10w 6" speaker guitar amp, it can barely cut through. Also, I am planning on starting a band very soon, and it would be nice to have a nice amp i can be heard with. My biggest problem is cash. I am getting a job very soon for summer, and i am going to use my funds to buy a new amp. I do not, however, want to buy a 100w combo type amp, because I will need to upgrade again, and buy a head/stack system when I outgrow that. I think i am going to take the larger initial investment option over the more cash over time option. So, heres my real question: Whats a good, cheap amp/cab setup i can get? I will most likely be playing hardcore music with a band, when i get one together, but i also enjoy playing reggae, dub, and funk (diverse eh?). So i would assume a 2x10 or a 4x10 would be best for the diversity. I will most likely end up with a 2x10 for now, and adding a 15 later. What cheap amp heads do you guys reccomend? I dont want total crap, but i think that eden and swr are a bit out of reach, with the exception of the (used) workingman's series. I am most likely going to look for a used amp, and it seems that i am leaning toward a Hartke, either 2000 or 3500, and used I have seen them for $200-300 ish. That seems like the best option for a head, but i am open to all suggestions. Also, what cabs do you reccomend in the $200-300 price range? Once again, i am most likely going to look used. I would really like to get away with a decent starter system for around $500. Thanx for reading my long post guys, and as always, your opinions are greatly valued.
