    Why just those 2? Theyre such different animals

    You're comparing a 1x15 combo amp to an 8x10 combo amp. Are you sure you even know what you're doing? And, which is better cannot be answered anyway.

    You can't really compare those two cabinets. An 810 is completely different from a 115.

    Spend a few hours reading through the amps forum, and you'll catch on quickly. You need to understand what your goals are, (you do), and what gear will get you there. Obviously, price is always an issue, so buying used gear is always a better option. More for your money. But seriously, read for a while, see what others are doing, and learn from everyone here. There's a wealth of knowledge to be had, for the taking. You'll get it.

    I think you need to take yourself an amp store pilgrimage :) Try some stuff out before you decide.

    No reason at all you need a combo amp, head/cab is definitely more flexible.
  10. The Peavey scores points on reliability and the ability to add an additional cabinet later, the Nemesis scores points on modern tone and speaker displacement. Either one will probably work for most moderate sized gigs. You really do need to check them out yourself, but that may be difficult as I haven't seen either stocked in stores. Good luck.
  11. For that price Id get a berg nv610 off this forum and a markbass head

    Find a review on the peavy. I think it's probably in the right ballpark for you; practice/some shows, and if it's not loud enough you can get a nice extension cab anytime. I believe it'd be lightweight, but see for yourself whether it's actually powerful and full sounding. Find out from others if peavy bass amps are reliable.
    good luck!

    Peavey amps are the Gold Standard when it comes to reliability. Heavy thou.

    I agree that Peavey is reliable. In this case if its for practice and small gigs I would go with the Peavey. It will be smaller and easier to move. You don't have to listen to me though I got a 2X15 for small gigs and practice.

    I've had great luck with the Nemesis line. I also have a 20 year old Peavey cab that has never given me an issue though...
  17. 8x10 will blow the doors off most of the venues you're describing.
