Apologies in advance for the noob question, but you guys are great. I'm getting back into playing and it's been a while since I've been a gearhead. I plan on using an amp mostly for practice, playing along with tracks etc... I would like enough balls and volume out of it to keep up with an acoustic gig providing a good low end, with a couple of mic'd singers and acoustic guitars over a modest PA. I don't intend on making this a backline substitute and I know it can't do it all. If I get into bigger situations, I'll revisit the whole thing. One thing I need is LOW, I want it to be able to not only handle, but kick ass on the low B. I play all kinds of stuff, DMB, Jamiroquai, classic rock, top 40, etc... My budget is around $500, can stretch to $600 if something is killer. I'm leaning towards combos, just because of the space. I'd rather tuck it away in a corner than have it overpower my room. That said, I am open to a head/cab setup. If I can keep my options open to expanding down the line, that'd be great. I think a 15" is in order, but that's the old school in me. Obviously I want it to handle full range, so not sure if a 15" will support the higher registers. From reading around, I've been looking into these models: GK MB212 GK MB115 Ampeg B100-R I'm not looking for 8x10" or 4x12", I think those days are over for me! Maybe 2x12" or 1x15" and 2x10", or a 15" with some 6" or horns. I'm open to a lot of options. Thanks in advance!
