    Hi all

    I'm thinking about digging out my Pearce bc1 and start using it as my main amp. Whenever I use to use it I put it in the return of my fusion 550. Now I have seen in threads that the Pearce has a low output and does not drive power amps that well. I really fancy a light weight amp and was looking at the peavey ipr series, could any one say if this would be a good match?? Or any other suggestions.

    Also just a thought would using a gk mb800 be good?(bypass the gk pre) With this I would also have a back up amp.

    I use a GK head exactly that way, and it's the best solution I've found for this particular problem.
