  1. Hey everyone. I was just wondering what opinion you all might have on what kind of amp I should buy for my 2nd amp. My current amp is pretty bad (10 watts), so I decided to invest on a better amp, probably around 80-120 watts. I don't have too much money to spend but I will welcome any suggestions on amps. Thanks in advance.
     
  2. Look into Carvin

    How much money are you willing to spend? For $479.99 you can get an Ampeg B-100R. 100 watts, gorgeous looks, warm sound, and pretty darned loud. I love mine.
     
  4. Thanks for the info guys. Probably, the most I would be able to spend on the amp is about $500. But I wouldn't really want to spend that much unless I absolutely had to.
     
  5. Ok, 2 amps I have been looking at are the Carvin PB100-15 and the Hartke Kickback 12. I have never actually tried out the amps but from reading the descriptions of them, they seem to be in my price range and they also have what I want. Any additional feedback on these amps or any other suggestions on good amps are greatly appreciated.

    Consider the Gallien-Krueger Backline series.
