Is this a good Amp?

    'Amf' is Amp for poster who does not use English as a first language.


    It is a rather small 1x12 amp. I think its great for a practice amp or with an
    acoustic band/ jazz band.

    For a rock, punk or metal band with a loud drummer you will need a bigger amp, the
    100 watt 1x12 combo probably won't cut through.

    They used to make bowling balls, and other sporting goods. They bought Harley-Davidson in the seventies, almost ruining the company. Thank god the family bought it back, and it is now public. I'm puzzled as to amf pertaining to music, as the f key is nowhere near the p key on the computer keyboard.

    It totally depends on how loud your drummer is. In general I'd say it's not enough for most situations. If I was you, I'd look for something else.

    I regret my use of the word "amf", while i should have used the word "amp". Could someone answer my questen in a serious way?

    You got 2 serious answers already. Just wait a few more minutes and more will come.
     
  7. 100 watts will easily overpower drums until someone actually plays them. :)
    And please understand that many TBers are here primarily to point out spelling & grammar infractions, in order to puff up their poor self-esteem. My main reason, anyway. :D

    Since I posted a sarcastic 'amf' comment and then deleted and also owned this amp for a minute, I'll reply. It is a nice amp although the one I had rattled when the volume started getting close to halfway. It was loud for its size although I found most of the preset amp models added a lot of hiss. I liked the 'flat' setting the best and that one didn't seem to hiss. I wouldn't buy one again considering all the other options out there these days.

    Here's another serious answer. That amp, while great for practice or acoustic gigs, will not satisfy your need to be heard in a rock band. Not only is 100 watts slightly low powered, but a single 12" spkr is rarely enough even with more power. If budget is a concern, shop for used amps, and if it's a combo you want, go for at least a 15" spkr, or 2 10's with the ability to add an extension spkr on to it.

    Not a good choice for ~400 euros. Find used gear with much more power and 2x10 or 4x10. Don't buy built-in effects. These are a waste of money, IMHO. Buy effects later once you can be heard.

    I would avoid a combo and get a separate head and cabinet. You can later upgrade one component and then the other--or add more cabinets if you have enough power. :bassist:
