Hey there. I'll admit i'm new to this... I've Looked through the Faq, but i'm still desperately lost. My brother took me to guitar center on monday for my birthday, and we looked at amps. I saw a nice ampeg combo 2x10 for 600 dollars. My brother seems to thinks that a 10 inch speaker isn't big enough to produce nice beefy low end. So we looked at a 1x12, and i don't know if it seemed loud enough overall. I just started playing in a band. At practice i used an ashdown 10inch 30 watt amp. It was loud enough to hear, but was cranked. We plan on just doing bar gigs. Nothing serious, just for fun. So, my questions are: 1. Do you really need more than a 10 inch speaker to get better low end? 2. Would a 2x10 be good in a bar type situation? 3. Could you recommend me a good amp (combo or cab/head) that would be loud enough for a bar gig and still sound good? My price range is between $300-$600. Thanks guys!
