I need an Upgrade, but I have Questions

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by FighttheSilence, Apr 5, 2009.


  1. Ok, so I'm in a Rock/Metal band and we are getting ready to gig, but we need upgrades on our gear. My 2 guitarist are both going to get Raven Half Stacks (100W solid state). We have a PA, and a Loud Drummer so....

    Remember, I am in high school, so I'm not loaded.

    1. How much power do I need, (small, medium shows)

    2. I think these 2 GK rigs would be good, Your imput?

    I'd also like to suggest your going with atleast a 4 ohm 610 cab.
    In a "loud" Metal band running against two 100 watt half stacks, a G.K. 700 and say a Ampeg 610 would be great.

    Don't just automatically go to GC and let their dweebs talk you into anything, particularly the Goldline stuff. If you must go new, go here:http://www.rmcaudio.com/gallien-krueger/gallien-krueger.htm

    An Avatar 4x10 is probably a better value than the GK cabs, not that there is anything wrong with them.

    A used Peavey Firebass with a 4 ohm Avatar 4x10 would set you back around $700 or so and be decent for what you're trying to do.

    iagree.
    search TB, craigslist, the bay and really make your $$$$ buy you more rig
    here is an example (not my listing)

    easily talk him down to $2k or get him to part out
