    I've been looking for a new amp to step up from my practice 15 watt amp. It's taken me two years but oh well.

    Two amps that are in my price range are the Fender Rumble 100W and the Crate 100W. So now, which one should I get, if it at all?

    I say fender... crate sucks. The fender rumbles are so much more bang for your buck... and sound 100x better...

    Although, the peavey TNT and TKO kick ass for the price range too.

    Should I even get a 100W amp, or just wait to get something larger. I'm playing with a band, and I have my practice amp (which of course is useless) and my guitarist has a 50W amp. I wont have any money to buy anything, and this 100 amp would be a christmas gift.
  4. I would humbly suggest other lower priced alternatives:



    or ashdown

    but i think if you can get the EB 112 180, grab. last of the bristish made ashdown combos. i used to have this one. it is gigable and light weight.

    How about a Gorilla amp? I wrote this song. Key of A minor.
