'Ello 'ello. THis is my situation. I have a 19 watt amp (where it is rated as a 10 watt in most catalogs oddly enough.) But now I need a better amp obviously. I am in two bands. A punk band with two guitarists and a progressive rock band that may be transformed to a three piece punk a-la Blink 182. Well I am looking at new amps. Well with my Epiphone bass I can dial up a good punk tone off the guitar it's self. Now thign thing is. I am looking at two Hartke combos in my price range ($400 US.) Yet both have differant qualities to them. So I need to know what amp will serve me needs more effiecently in my band setting. In my punk band I am gonna be doing a lot of bass soloing. So I need an amp that can cut through the mix for now. I know one of the guitarists has a 65 watt amp and the other I believe is 70. Yet oen of these amps offer more wattage but smaller cone and one offers less wattage and bigger cone. Here are a description of two from Sam Ash where I plan on getting them. Hartke Kickback 10 $399.99 ( I am a bad negiotater so I doubt I will negiotate.) 120 watts (8 ohms) 10" aluminum cone 3 band EQ effect send and return (whatever that means, if someone cares to tell me) XLR direct out (what is that.. i thought that was the jack for a microphone?) shape control (that just sounds fake) then there is the.. Hartke B90 $369.99 90 watts 15" driver 3 band EQ adjustible shape ciruitry reinforced cabinet effects loop line level output (huh?) disable speaker function (right i can turn off my speaker?.. that makes no sense right there) Those are the two. Of course I will also be looking at there used stuff.. But a lot of local shops here have no used equipment anymore. But I will alway sbe lookign around for something better.. But those are the only two I am certain of. So any little tidbits will help.
