Cheap half decent amp

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Groovin_Joe, Jun 17, 2003.


  1. I am looking for a cheap amp for myself. I need at least 200w and I think i want a 15" speaker. Mostly i need it cause the keyboard amp that i have now is not big enough for the fender V that i just got. My amp is not quite big enough to do the small gigs that i do. I was thinking Yorkville or something like that. I know that 500 cdn is not all that much. But also what name should i look for or qualities should i test if i am looking for a used one???

    Any suggestions would be great thanks.!

    Yorkville does make good amps. I gigged with two in the past and they sounded fine, were very reliable.

    I'd personally advise a USED GK 400RB and a USED cab with 15" JBL or EV speaker.

    In the US that's easily doable for $400 or so.
