Just looking for a reliable, decent power amp for no more than $200 (used). Weight isn't a huge factor, but light is nice. For now, it'll be powering a Peavey 215D with Scorpion Plus speakers, 300 watts 4 ohms. I believe (will eventually get some Black Widows). I eventually may pick up a couple of 410s sometime, so it would be nice it if it could be powerful enough for that when the time comes so I can switch them back and forth. So, what should I be looking for? If it's any consolation, my live sound instructor in my music program says that it's "better" to run it with a bass amp, skipping the preamp, saying that "they were meant to be run with bass amps" and that running a normal power amp with them is silly. I thought this was an odd bit of input, but didn't know if there was any truth behind it. And while I'm at it, I'm looking for a nice fuzz pedal that I can use for both guitar and bass. I'd like to avoid EHX (not much to my taste in terms of fuzz), and would like to stay around $150 used. I was thinking Blackout Effector Musket, but don't know how it does for bass. Open to any input. Thanks guys!
