    I am looking for a practice amp that is easy on the wallet. i am thinking about 30 watts of power but would settle for less. I would like to keep the price under $150 but might go up to $200. do you have any suggestions? I greatly appreciate all help, thanks.
     
  2. I wouldn't go for a specific model in your case. I would patiently scan the pawn shops until something good comes along. At that price range you can get a good deal this way. I recently picked up a Traynor Bloc100K for $80 this way. It's a 100watt 3 channel keyboard combo with a 15" driver and a horn. Fantastic on bass!

    If you want a Yorkville (Traynor) 250 watt combo ( Bloc 250B ) with a 15" driver that's made for bass, I have one for sale. It's heavy though, so shipping may be expensive.

    Peavey Minx 110. 35 watts, under $200 and good for low volume gigs.


    Oh yeah, they're bulletproof too.
