    hey everyone

    I tried to ask this a couple days ago but that thread failed pretty hard so i'll try again.
    Im looking to upgrade from my crappy 40watt no brand amp to something that will work well for jamming in a band and maybe some small gigs later on. Do you have any really good quality amps in mind? I saw a new warwick sweet 15.2 on ebay for really cheap and im wondering if it that would be a good quality amp.

    help GREATLY appreciated

    Wish I could help, but I've never played a Warwick. Your other thread got 31 views, so I guess none of those guys have either.

    Wording your thread titles more to the point might help some. i.e; "Warwick 15.2 Suggestions Please",(although you did name the model in your other thread).
    Most experienced members here tend to ignore thread titles such as "suggestions PLEASE" or "What Amp should I Buy?"

    Next time try the advanced search feature. I just did and here are the results (123 posts).;S:;FORID:1&hl=en
    Good Luck!

    Price range?

    First thing that comes to mind if you can stomach the cost is the package at the bottom of this page. All-inclusive (even instrument cables). I may soon be getting mark to build that rig for a protege of mine.

    Think big picture, or you will end up pouring more money into another amp. Get something that will have the power to handle at least medium sized gigs. That way you have the power if needed in the future.

    Price range? Location? Style of music?

    You need to be more specific in your questions I have learned here. What is more important to you: volume, size (portability), tone or reliability? I have had great results from Peavey, gigged a combo 300 for several years without any problems in a bar band in the 80's. As I got older I hated carrying it and did not like the tone anymore. I switched to a Fender BXR400 head and 2 single 15's in 89 and liked the portability and tone. Then I down sized to a small practice amp for playing in my room. Point is be more specific and you will get plenty of opinions here.

    A friend here ordered a Warwick Sweet 15 (don't know if it the 15.2, though) a few years ago from Germany: it's a decent sounding amp, but doesn't get that loud and it feels lke it's built from fairly cheap parts (not necessarily the electronics, but the chassis and cab).

    I think you can do better, but I'm sorry i haven't any suggestions that aren't pricey.

    If you're on the lookout for a good combo (amp, controls, and speaker all in one), I've been looking at used Nemesis amps lately and considering getting one with maybe an extra speaker cab for more sound at bigger shows. These combos have a lot of power and nice features for different situations.
