    Hey eveyone, I thinking before I go all out with a pre/power setup I want to get a smaller combo because right now all I have is a 25 watt marshall amp. I gig pretty often so it would really be nice. So im thinking about getting a yorkie xs400t 2X10 combo. Could you guys tell me what you think about this amp? and if you dont like it and think I should steer clear thats also welcome.

    I would suggest in getting it in the hard urethane finish rather than the carpet , Because You are going to definately want to grab the matching 115 or the 210 for it.(250wrms at 8ohms internal and the full 400wrms at 4 ohms with extention) The extention cabs do NOT come in black carpet.(though I wish it were an option!)

    I have to disagree...I absolutely HATE the paint, it's abrasive, and I've lost a lot of skin to it with my other Yorkie cabs (not to mention store displays when I help out on the sales floor...)

    The carpet covering isn't that hard to keep up...and to be honest, it's not as expensive either, if that's a factor! I have mine on top of an XC210 in my home studio, wish I could get that in the carpet finish as well, but I don't really notice the difference...they're both dark in colour, and the grills are the same/similar enough that it doesn't bug me...

    ...as far as the power, the 250w at 8 ohms internal is IMO underated, it's plenty loud enough, I usually don't need or use the extension cabinet when I take it out.

    Does Yorkville typically under rate their power ratings? My XM200C on its own gets pretty darn loud, and thats 150 watts into its internal speaker. I can't wait until I can pair it up with a Yorkville cab.

    Since I use mostly flatwound strings, do you have any suggestions?

    BTW, not that being louder than claimed is a bad thing!! :hyper:

    I guess it would be better to say "EXTREMELY conservative", rather than under rate...and you'll see specs listed for both continous and peak wattage.

    rev is correct they are very underated power wise my Euphonic is a cleaner sounding head but the Yorkie has way more powerful!!
