Hi I'm a new member and im looking for some advice on buying an amp. Right now i have a cheap like 15 watt practice amp. Nedless to say it doesnt serve its perpose anymore now that im in a band and in high school jazz band. So, with that said i am looking for an amp in the $500-800 range that is loud enough to be heard in an auditorium with a couple hundred people. I was thinking either the Ampeg 210 combo or the Gallien-Kreuger 400RB (I think) 210 or 115 combo. I liked both of these but if you guys have suggestions for better (in general) amps for the price please tell me. I want to get the most bang for my buck. BTW, i want to try the amp before i buy it and i dont live in a large city with many guitar stores.
