    Currently looking to buy a good combo, around 200 Watts for small gigs nd practice with a 3 piece rock band.

    The Backline 210 and the workingpro 12 look good.
    Would love to hear from some one with first hand experience with one of these amps. Which is louder? Best tone?

    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    IMO,
    working pro rigs are much better than backline series rigs. wp just all around better build than backline.
    also consider fender bassman line (not rumble) or carvin
     
  3. what's the ballpark price you're looking at? there is something to be said for buying new gear (warranty, customer service, new smell...) but budget price doesn't have to mean budget gear if you're looking at used equipment. if i was looking to spend less than $500 i would not be looking at new equipment.

    I would go used, and get a Working Pro 15". Better than the 12 for a variety of venues. There are quite a few on Ebay and Craigslist. Built like a tank and roadworthy. The BL combos are more of a practice rig and low end. Now as far as the BL600 head, I think that is a very good value for the $.
