    Who's got a small combo amp with 300w or more such as the:
    Ashdown abm C110-300
    EA Iamp
    that sort of thing.

    Is this your main amp?
    What music do you play?
    Do you use or need an extention cab?
    Whats the largest room you've played with out a PA.

    Thanx in advance.

    Not exactly high powered, but I use a YorkVille BM200-T combo. 2x10"+T.
    I use it as is on a chair for practise.
    For concerts, I add an old Eminence loaded 2x15" extension cab to it and it's louder than I need, even for metal.
    I push a lot of air.

    I use a Mesa BUSTER 2x10 wedge combo-
    200 watts of tube power. Plenty loud-
    It easily cuts through the mix of a 5-piece R&B/Blues band.
    In larger clubs, I combine it with a Mesa Diesel 1x15
    extension cab, KILLER headroom!
    For smaller rooms, it's fine as a stand-alone.
    Only drawback- Weight! (Mass). This is a relatively
    compact wedge, but it is heavy at 95 lbs.
    Even with built-in wheels & handle, it's a hassle
    to manuever. The cabinet w/casters is easy by comparison- it just rolls right along.
    Once the unit is in place, it's well worth it- There's
    nothing like the resonance of tubes.:cool:

    I have a Carvin RC210 combo. 600 watts into two tens. I actually don't use it any more. I've taken the head out and put it in a rack and use an Eden 410XLT cab. The Carvin combo had good volume, but I have to compete with Marshall half stacks so I got the Eden.
