I recently posted a thread in this section regarding power of my Bassman 250W 210 and either getting a new setup or an extension cab. The replies and opinions were very different from one another. Some rooted for the new setup while others believed adding a 15" cab with ample power would be enough to make me happy for my larger shows. Obviously I wanted to not spend a lot of money since this is the time of year my hours get cut (garden center/floral nursery). So I was really rooting for the 15" cab idea but feared that if I bought one, some power would be lost which some have told me may happen. I can't afford to lose any wattage at all since 250W is barely cutting it as it is. Now recently I've noticed one particular amp with 100W more power than my Bassman and just as big. Which is nice because I like to travel light and/or in small pieces. Plus it has all of the same outputs for an extension cabinet which would be perfect. Something just as big, 100W more, and all the same capabilities of my Bassman. AND IT'S ONLY $500! But wait... . Something doesn't add up. If that only costs $500. Why do I still see my Bassman 250 for about $700 on some sites including this http://www.zzounds.com/item--FEN2345700010. So what I'm asking is, does anyone know how this amp is personally? And if it's even worth the switch? Because I'm a little confused as to why something with 100W more and almost 10 years newer of a design would be cheaper. I really hope it would be worth the switch because I think it looks badass for one. And second, more power and more headroom for power with a 15" cab if need be. Sorry for posting a novel for what should have been a short post and thanks in advance for helping!
