Righty.... Within a week of playing the bass, I inadvertantly signed myself up to a band. Theres a huge shortage of Drummers and Bass players in the area.... So now I need a decent amp for practicing with other people. In this thread here a lot of people wax lyrical about the line 6 lowdown 110. Now basically this is about the right watts for what I'm looking for, but I'm a little apprehensive about the amp size. Will 10" be able to keep up with the guitar and drums? For the same money I could buy something with lower watts and a bigger speaker size...which looks like it makes the line 6 a little inefficient Alternatively I have this very old amp that was passed down to me. Its around late 70's, brand is 'HH' and model is called a 'Studio-60'. Its 100w with a 12" speaker. Now I have no idea whether this amp is for guitars or bass, but it certainly doesnt like the low E and starts to make a humming noise, making me think its a guitar amp. Basically a strange thought occured to me...what if I replaced the speaker with an 100w 12" bass speaker? Would this bass proof it? Would it be cheaper then a new amp? and would it actually work? It does sound pretty sweet with a guitar, and the equaliser has lots of variables on it If so could anyone recommend a driver? Our guitarist uses a 35w practice amp, and our drummer uses an electric kit through a kustom dart 10fx Sorry if this is all full of noobie comments, I'm pretty new to the llower end of the spectrum, having played treble instruments all my life.
