    Go used-(RedHead,Eden)
    Look into also:
    Ashdown Electric Blue-(Not sure if they have a 2x10)
    Try & find a used Mesa Buster Wedge-
    IF you like 200 watts of rich all-tube sound-
    600 bucks is about a ballpark if you can locate one.

  4. Thanks, I dont think 150 watts will cut it though, especially with a 2x10. I wouldn't be upgrading, I'd be spending more money and downgrading speaker size and upgrading wattage minimal, so they compensate for eachother, so i'd be getting basically what i have now... :(

    Thanks though:)

    Peavey used to make a 210 combo amp called the "Combo 210TX". I recently bought one used so I'd have an amp to leave at a venue that is a nightmare to carry equipment to. It has the same electronics as the Combo 300 but has a rear ported 210 cabinet with a Foster horn.

    It does not sound as good as my Super Redhead but the SWR did not cost $250! The Peavey is a good amp for the $$.

    I use an Ashdown ABM C210H-500(500wts)the sound is very big, solid and clear.for me it's a very versatile combo.

    Fender Bassmans are good sounding amps

    perhaps a bit costly, but the EBS Gorm is very nice.
  10. This one gets my vote as well. I've got a 210TX and I've had it for about 7 yrs. You can add a 4 ohm 15 and have a 300 watt 1x15,2x10 rig.

    Check out the 2x10c in the SWR Workingman's series...looks like it has lots of potential man! Also, the Yorkville XM200t is very good.

    the SWR workingman 2x10c is a very little monster with lot of headroom, if you want more... get an extension cab and you have a whole rig.
    swr workingman 2x10c rulez! :hyper:

    I'd go used Metro. Loads of bang for the buck, and great sound. Fairly large and heavy for a 210 combo, but does a great job. Cust support is very good IMO. Not sure the recent company ownership change has any impact.

    When I was looking for one of these I came VERY close to pulling the trigger on a Nemesis 2x10. Specs are nice for 5 string players as the combo goes down to 35 hz! THe whole combo only weighs in at 47 lbs to boot! Plusd it's made by Eden, so you know you can't go wrong. This seems to be the winning 2x10 for the gigging guy.
  15. IIRC, there was a used redhead on bassgear.com a couple weeks ago for $600. No affiliation, YMMV, etc.
