Hey y'all! I've been running into volume issues with my folk band. It's a five piece made up of guitar, 12 string, banjo, viola, and bass. For what it's worth, our singer is loud to begin with and our 12 string player occasionally doubles on mandolin. The issue I've been running into is that unless we're fully unplugged while playing outside, I'm not loud enough. Indoor shows don't have the same volume issues but that's another animal altogether. At smaller outdoors shows (50-100 people) we'll run lead vocals and lead guitar through a Fender Acoustisonic combo. I had my banjo player asking me to play louder yesterday in the middle of a set. We had just played one of our less dense songs featuring mandolin instead of the 12 string. I was playing too hard just trying to hear myself throughout that whole song. I'm going to take that as a sign that I might want to look into a small amplifier. Currently, my smallest amps are a B-15N and a Mesa Buster 210. Playing a lot of outdoor gigs means long walks for load in and sometimes has us just setting up on the wet ground. Bringing expensive 70-80 pound tube amps into these conditions? No thanks! I'd prefer a 110 combo, preferably class D. We're often sharing a 100 ft extension cord from a nearby building so efficiency doesn't hurt. I'm only really concerned about 80 hz and above so anything with a -6db of ~65 hz or below should suffice for me. Candidates include: GK MB110 or MB110-II Carvin MB10 Peavey Max 110 (new model) Genz Benz Shuttle 10T I also have a 110 loaded with an Eminence S2010 based on Duke's thread: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/low-cost-diy-practice-coffeehouse-tweeterless-110-[long]-736360/. I could always just pick up a micro head to match that. The MB200 is the first thing to mind. Second is the Carvin BX250 but at $270, I could have an MB10 for $300. What would you guys suggest? Our volume is likely to stay the same or increase marginally as our confidence continues to increase. I'm leaning towards an amp since it can double as a stage monitor at our bigger gigs. Let's try to keep it under $300 new or used. Thanks for any help!
